The trailer for the third and final season of Narcos: Mexico is officially out — and Bad Bunny has finally made his teaser debut. In the new trailer, we get a quick snippet of the music superstar in action. That’s not all: Netflix released first-look photos of the series and cast, in which there’s a still look at el conejo malo on set. 

Bad Bunny will play Arturo “Kitty” Paez, a member of Ramon Arellano Felix’s gang. The “Yonaguni” artist first announced his involvement with Narcos: Mexico in his Rolling Stone cover story back in May 2020. He revealed that “he began shooting scenes as a supporting actor” before filming for the TV series was shut down to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Everybody under 30 in the office lost their s—,” showrunner Carlo Bernard told Entertainment Tonight of the moment the casting team revealed that Bad Bunny wanted to be on the show. “I was like, ‘Oh, I should probably pay more attention to this!’ He put himself on tape, and — to no surprise — he’s very watchable, and you’re innately drawn to him.”

Bad bunny also spoke out on his participation: “I loved the original Narcos, so when they announced Narcos: Mexico, I was sold; I’m honored to be a part of the show,” he says. “Kitty is a charismatic guy who loved looking fresh. He likes nice things, and I can really relate to that!”

Narcos: Mexico premieres on November 5 on Netflix.
