Unfortunately there is no Narcos: Mexico derivative series in preparation. In an exclusive interview with Collider, Narcos: Mexico Showrunner Carlo Bernard said there is no spinoff series currently in development. When asked about a Narcos: Mexico spin-off, said Bernard, “there are no plans” to expand the Narcos universe.
âWe don’t know,â he explained. âThere’s no plan, honestly. This is certainly the end of the ride, for now. Sadly, drug trafficking isn’t going anywhere, so obviously the possibility of other iterations might exist. But for now, that’s it.
Bernard added that Narcos: Mexico was the perfect ending to the series. âWe felt like we were telling a coherent story with Colombia and Mexico. So, they’re kind of siblings, as we’ve seen. So, [Narcos: Mexico] I felt like a nice place to end.
Why did the creators choose to end the series after three seasons?

Narcos: Mexico Season 3 will mark the end of the series. According to Newsweek, Netflix has renewed the series for a third season. However, the streaming service announced Narcos: Mexico Season 3 will be the last installment. The platform did not give reasons for its decision. But, it should be noted its predecessor, Narcos, ended after three seasons. So it is a possibility that the creators chose to end Narcos: Mexico with the same number of seasons.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Narcos: Mexico Showrunner Carlo Bernard said the final season would delve into the “origin story” of the modern war on drugs. âI saw this season as an origin story from the modern world we live in,â he said.
Bernard continued, âFor me it was like bringing the show to this place where we now recognize, for better or for worse, made sense as a place to stop it. The show was able to lift the curtains and show you how this thing started, how it evolved. Not to say that other stories would not be convincing in the future. But for me, stopping at the moment we had delivered the world we live in today made sense, thematically and narratively.
