Narcos: Mexico fell on Netflix in one go last Friday (November 16). The series is a restart of the previous three seasons of Narcos that took place in Colombia and charted the rise of drug lord Pablo Escobar. This time the action takes place in Mexico and follows the Guadalajara cartel, its leader Félix Gallardo (played by Diego Luna) and the DEA agent who brought him down, Kiki Camarena (Michel Peña).

This season of Narcos has two notable leads in Luna and Peña, but also has a great cast of actors, most of whom represent real people who were involved in the events of that time.
The majority of the cast members at the core are based on real people who were prominent figures at the moment.
In the Netflix series, Gallardo unites the fragmented cartels in a much larger operation.
One of those smaller groups was the Sinaloa cartel led by Pedro Aviles Perez.
