List RulesVote up the films and series that give you Narcos vibes.

Need something new to watch after finishing Narcos? You're in luck, as you'll find plenty of great shows and movies just like it below. Pablo Escobar was one of the principal drug kingpins responsible for making cocaine popular across the planet. He became a billionaire who was so rich and famous for his exploits, he later became the subject of many documentaries and films. While there are several choices of films and TV series about the man, the best so far is easily Narcos starring Wagner Moura as Escobar. The Nextflix drama series' three seasons follow the exploits of Escobar, other members of the Medellín Cartel, and the rise of the Cali Cartel.

Fans of the series may be hankering for a fix after binging all of the episodes available and fortunately, there's a great deal of TV shows and films like Narcos you can enjoy! For instance, the series is similar to AMC's Breaking Bad, which tells the story of a chemistry teacher dying of cancer who builds up his own little drug cartel thanks to his ability to manufacture pure meth. Then you have films like Scarface, which examine the rise of the drug culture in the United States from the perspective of a Cuban immigrant. 

In short, fans of Narcos have some great options to watch next. For more recommendations, browse this list and feel free to add any similar shows and movies you think are missing!
