Narcos 3

"Agent Peña, how much do you know about the Cali Cartel?"

In a post-Pablo Escobar world, those final words spoken in the last season Narcos foreshadows the upcoming season's pivot into the corrupt, powerful and wildly profitable world of Colombia's Cali Cartel - the biggest drug lords you've probably never heard of.

Now that the bloody hunt for Pablo Escobar has ended, the DEA turns its attention to the richest drug trafficking organisation in the world: the Cali Cartel.

Led by four powerful godfathers, this cartel operates much differently than Escobar's, preferring to bribe government officials and keep its violent actions out of the headlines.

Meet the Kings:

Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela
Leader of Cali Cartel, "boss of bosses"

Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela
The brains behind the rise of the of Cali Cartel and Gilberto's brother

Pacho Herrera
The on-the-low hitman, runs the Mexican connection and international distribution

Chepe Santacruz Londono
Runs the satellite NYC empire of the Colombian drug network

Just as Gilberto announces a bold plan to walk away from the business, DEA agent Javier Peña enlists the help of American and Colombian law enforcement to take it down.

In the Season 3 premiere: Peña returns to Cali to hunt a more powerful enemy than Escobar.

Gilberto Rodriguez, the Godfather of the Cali Cartel, announces his planned surrender of the cartel in six months, where they will retain their fortunes in return for short jail stints.

Jorge Salcedo, deputy director of security for the Rodriguez brothers, plans to resign, but is forced to continue working for the cartel.

Run by a whole new generation of owners, these joints serve up delicious home-made food and Guy is hitting the road to check them out.

Whether it's a shack on the side of the highway or a sports bar in Vegas, Guy samples their best dishes and chats to the locals who are regulars in these iconic regional restaurants.

In the Season 33 premiere, "Takeout: Worldwide Delivery": Guy and his family love cooking at home and great restaurant food, so they combine the best of both worlds with some Triple-D style takeout.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Takeout: Bringing Comfort Home": On this menu, there's gourmet grilled cheese from Nashville, primo pizza from Boulder, Colorado, Memphis fried chicken and Greek kebabs out of Houston, Texas.
