Narcos: Mexico plot details 

Coming as a spinoff to Narcos, which showcased Pablo Escobar’s journey as Colombia’s drug lord, the Mexico version charts the origin of the modern drug wars in the country. The first two seasons focused on the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s, with Luna playing the role of Gallardo. The latest season, however, dwells on the history of what happened when Gallardo wasn't in the picture. Its key message is to convey that although players operating in the system may change on an everyday basis, the system guiding them remains stays all but intact all these decades later.

Its official synopsis on Netflix reads,

"Witness the birth of the Mexican drug war in the 1980s as a gritty new "Narcos" saga chronicles the true story of  the Guadalajara cartel's ascent"
