Netflix just gave you a hit that is sure to bump up your morning: The official trailer for “Narcos: Mexico.”

The first full look at season one of the Netflix spinoff series teases a whole new drug world for “Narcos” fans, with this drama starring Diego Luna and Michael Peña taking you to the “birth place of Mexico’s drug war.” And don’t worry, because this show is independent from “Narcos,” so you can still it enjoy it if you aren’t fully caught up on the first three seasons of the Colombia-set series.

Here’s the official logline for “Narcos: Mexico,” per Netflix:

“Narcos: Mexico” will explore the origins of the modern drug war by going back to its roots, beginning at a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. Witness the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.

The series hails from Gaumont Television in association with Netflix. Eric Newman is executive producer and showrunner, with José Padilha, Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard also executive producing.

“Narcos: Mexico” launches Nov. 16 on Netflix.
