Pablo Escobar may no longer be a part of the show, but "Narcos" Season 3 is set to continue following the DEA's fight against drugs. However, the series could be set for major changes now that Wagner Moura's character has been killed. For starters, Pedro Pascal could be set to become the new narrator now that the Netflix drama is expected to focus on the Cali Cartel.

Boyd Holbrook's Steve Murphy may have served as the voice of the show in the first two seasons, but the character's job is now done following the death of Pablo Escobar. In addition to that, the Season 2 finale already hinted on the shift in the storyline, pushing Pedro Pascal's Javier Pena to narrate "Narcos" Season 3.

Did Second Season Finale Hint On Javier Pena Becoming The Voice Of 'Narcos' Season 3? Pedro Pascal To Replace Boyd Holbrook As Narrator?

The recent season finale featured Boyd Holbrook's Steve Murphy thoughtfully celebrating the death of Pablo Escobar, but the episode's final moments were all about Pedro Pascal's character. Javier Pena is shown expecting to be relieved of his duties but ended up having to answer a question that teased on what "Narcos" Season 3 will be about: "What do you know about the Cali Cartel?"

Javier Pena knows A LOT about the Cali Cartel, and fans believe the DEA agent will be tasked with the mission to bring it down. This would be a complicated assignment for Pedro Pascal's character, since he has collaborated with the cartel to bring Pablo Escobar down. It certainly looks like Javier is set to take over as the voice of "Narcos" Season 3 when Boyd Holbrook's Steve Murphy leaves Colombia.

After all, Javier Pena could prove to be a better narrator of the Cali Cartel's story since he knows them intimately. The show is expected to return on Netflix next fall.
