Netflix Narcos has added a couple of new cast members for Season 3 with the acquisition of Michael Stahl-David and Matt Whelan.
Stahl-David will play Chris Feistl, a young American DEA agent who sought out assignment to Colombia as the drug trade shifts to the Cali Cartel’s takeover in the wake of Pablo Escobar’s death. Whelan will play his partner, Daniel Van Ness. Feistl is described as being the more straight-edge and serious agent of the two.
Stahl-David and Whelan join Pedro Pascal, who will reprise his role as DEA agent Javier Pena, half of the show’s previously leading buddy-cop duo.
The death of Escobar brings about a new villain for the third season. Instead of one mastermind, however, Cali is run by a network of villains.
