Is Narcos: Mexico Related to Narcos?

Whereas the first three Narcos series followed the Medellin and Cali cartels, season 4 is centralised around Mexico.

However, as you’ll see episode by episode, some familiar faces creep into season 4 and the links between the three cartels become clear.

The Mexican, Cali and Medellin cartels all existed at the same time at one point in history – and season 4 gives you a chance to see them all in action.
