A new Netflix series will make for perfect viewing for anyone who loved Narcos

If you couldn't get enough of Pablo Escobar in Narcos, then this is the show for you.

The fourth season of Narcos won’t arrive until later this year, but fans of the show looking to binge on something similar (we’re talking about a TV show, not actual drugs) will appreciate the arrival of Drug Lords on Netflix this Friday, 19 January.

While Narcos is a dramatised version of the real-life stories of some of the most famous drug cartels in Central and South America, Drug Lords features real-life accounts of some of the most notorious figures in the world of narcotics, including Pablo Escobar, with testimonies from those directly involved.

Frank Lucas, whose story was told in American Gangster with Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington, is another who will feature in a look at the rise, reign and fall of some of the most infamous men in history.

Created by UK-based ITN Productions, four episodes of Drug Lords will be available on Netflix from 19 January, with four more to come later in the year.

That will help bridge the gap until a completely new-look Narcos arrives for a fourth season sometime in 2018.
