Narcos: Mexico Has Some Major Changes
Netflix had confirmed the third installment of the series, Narcos: Mexico in October. They also confirmed major changes in the next season which included Diego Luna’s return as Felix Gallard. The changes also included the comeback of Scoot McNairy, José Maria Yazpik, Alberto Ammann, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda, and Gorka Lasaosa.
The description of the third season of Narcos reads as follows: “Set in the ’90s, when the globalization of the drug business ignites, season three examines the war that breaks out after Felix’s empire splinters. As newly independent cartels struggle to survive political upheaval and escalating violence, a new generation of Mexican kingpins emerge. But in this war, truth is the first casualty—and every arrest, murder, and take-down only pushes real victory further away.”
Bad Bunny had opened up about shattering the machismo Latinx stereotype through his fashion, songs, and music videos. He had shared how good it feels because he is using his impact on something positive. The Puerto Rican rapper had revealed it feels good to lead people just by the way he lives or by being himself.
He said, To lead so many people just by the way I live, by being myself; to motivate people to be free and liberated to be themselves, it feels good. Any time you can make someone feel good, it’s the best thing. It’s infectious, and that’s how you end up feeling good yourself.”
