Netflix has released four new character posters for upcoming series Narcos.
The 10-episode show chronicles the real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the law enforcement efforts to meet them head on.
The series re-partners creator and executive producer José Padilha (Elite Squad, RoboCop) with acclaimed Brazilian actor Wagner Moura (Elite Squad). Moura stars as Pablo Escobar opposite Colombia’s Juan Pablo Raba (El corazón del océano) as Gustavo Gaviria and Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña.
The series also features performances by Manolo Cardona (Covert Affairs), British theatre star Joanna Christie (Once), Mexican sensation Stephanie Sigman (also seen later this year in Spectre), Brazil’s André Mattos (Elite Squad), and Luis Guzman (Boogie Nights) and Ana de la Reguera (Eastbound & Down, Nacho Libre).
The four new posters give us a closer look at the series’ big players: Steve Murphy, Javier Peña, Gustavo Gaviria and – of course – Ecscobar himself.
All 10 episodes of the series land on Netflix on Friday 28th August at 8.01am.
