Here's the Scoop...

Jeff Bridges says his cancer is in remission and he has recovered from COVID-19 in a new blog post that was uploaded to his website on Monday.

"My cancer is in remission -- the '9 x 12' mass has shrunk down to the size of a marble. My COVID is in the rearview mirror," the actor said.

Bridges announced that he was diagnosed with lymphoma in October 2020.

The 71-year-old previously said on his blog that he was in the hospital for five weeks after he got COVID-19 in January. Bridges was exposed to the virus at the facility where he was receiving chemotherapy before he was able to get vaccinated.

"COVID kicked my ass pretty good, but I'm double vaccinated and feeling much better now. I heard that the vaccine can help folks with long haulers. Maybe that's the cause of my quick improvement," he continued in the new blog post.

Bridges also released new footage of his Hulu series The Old Man after stating that he is ready to get back to work on the drama. Production on The Old Man has been on hiatus.

Be Well,
Steve

'Narcos: Mexico' to end with Season 3, feature Luisa Rubino as narrator

Narcos: Mexico will conclude with a third and final season.

Netflix announced Monday that Season 3 will be the show's last. The season will premiere Nov. 5.

Netflix shared the news alongside a teaser for the new season. The preview introduces Luisa Rubino as the show's first female narrator. Boyd Holbrook, Pedro Pascal and Scoot McNairy narrated previous seasons.

"There are forces moving us, shaping our lives that we're not aware of," Rubino says in a voiceover. "My country was at war. A war that would change Mexico and drug trafficking forever."

"War spreads like fire. But no matter how fast it burns... the music keeps playing," she adds.

Rubino will play a young, idealistic and ambitious journalist whose mission to expose corruption brings her an even bigger story that she anticipated, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Season 3 will feature returning stars McNairy, José María Yázpik, Alfonso Dosal, Mayra Hermosillo, Matt Letscher, Manuel Masalva, Alejandro Edda and Gorka Lasaosa. New cast members include Rubino, Luis Gerardo Méndez, Alberto Guerra and Bad Bunny.

Narcos: Mexico is a companion series to Narcos, which had three seasons on Netflix. Both series are created by Chris Brancato, Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro.
