Within three seasons of Narcos, Netflix brought the action-filled story about the Colombian drug cartels of the '80s to life with Pablo Escober (played by Wagner Moura) as the centerpiece.
Along with the success of the series, Netflix decided to delve on Narcos: Mexico, which was initially thought to be a fourth season of the original series. But it turned out that that Narcos: Mexico wasn't a sequel at all; it was the highlight on illegal drug trafficking that is a part of a shared universe.
And Alberto is seen in the series as one of the four Cali bosses including Miguel Rodriguez (Francisco Denis) and Chepe Santacruz Londono (Pepe Rapazote) in 1983.
