El Chapo Will Be Featured on 'Narcos: Mexico' Amid His High-Profile Trial

By Anna Quintana

The most notorious drug trafficker in the world, Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán is currently on trial, facing a 17-count indictment and a minimum sentence of life in prison. However, the courtroom isn't the only place you can catch a glimpse of El Chapo on your television screens.  

The infamous leader of the Sinaloa Cartel will also be briefly featured on the Netflix original series Narcos: Mexico. Season 4 (or Season 1 depending on which way you look at it) of the crime drama will shift focus from Pablo Escobar's criminal enterprise in Colombia to tell the story of Mexico's illegal drug trade. 

"It's not a story about a bad guy," said Diego Luna, at a media roundtable on Nov. 9. (Diego portrays the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, Félix Gallardo.) 

"[The main character of the series] is cocaine." Luckily, you can't tell the story of cocaine without at least mentioning the "bad guy" known as El Chapo.
