In November 2018, the first season of HBO’s coming-of-age drama “My Brilliant Friend” premiered in Italian and Neapolitan. Following strong ratings for the first season (the Tomatometer and audience scores on Rotten Tomatoes both stand at 93 percent), the programme was immediately renewed for a second season the following month (via Variety).
Raffaella “Lila” Cerullo (Gaia Girace, Ludovica Nasti) and Elena “Lenù” Greco (Margherita Mazzucco, Elisa del Genio) meet at primary school in Naples in the 1950s and become friends. The storey follows Lila from her teens till she passes away in late maturity. Both seasons of My Brilliant Friend and The Story of a New Name were inspired by Elena Ferrante’s book series, which were both based on the first novel in the series.
The fact that there are four volumes in the series may have piqued the interest of the show’s fans in a third season. Season 3 of “My Brilliant Friend” has eluded us thus far.
Season 4 of My Brilliant Friend will be released on the following dates:
The good news is that, as HBO announced in April, a third season will be published (via The Hollywood Reporter). The bad news is that the second season has yet to be released, so we have no idea when Elena and Lila’s adventure will resume.
Saverio Costanzo, HBO’s executive VP of programming, said, “We are thrilled that Elena and Lila’s tale continues to resonate with fans and reviewers alike, and we commend the entire team lead by Saverio Costanzo for their excellent work on the second season.”
With bated breath, we await the next chapter in Elena and Lila’s lives and romance.”
COVID-19 forced the postponement of the following chapter, as well as most other film and television productions. Work on Season 3 will continue in February 2021, according to TheCinemaholic. Now that development has resumed, we expect to hear about a release date soon.
When will the fourth season of My Brilliant Friend premiere?
On November 18, 2018, the first season, which consisted of eight episodes, premiered. On February 10, 2020, the second season, which will consist of eight episodes, will premiere.
There will be eight episodes in total. As a result, it has a total of 24 episodes.
The release date for the fourth season is currently uncertain.
Because the third season just ended, it’s too early to say. We might have to wait a while for an official update from the show’s creators.
However, we know that a fourth season is in the works, and the most likely release date for the next instalment would be in 2023, providing time for production and filming.
What is the plot of Season 3: Last Season of My Brilliant Friend?
Seasons 1 and 2 were both inspired by novels, as previously stated: Season 1 was inspired by the novel My Brilliant Friend, and Season 2 was inspired by the novel The Story of a New Name. The storyline of the third novel, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, will be adapted in the third episode.
Lenù and Lila’s connection will be put to the ultimate test when their separate love lives collapse. Fans may expect a fourth season of the drama series due to the four-volume format of the Neopolitan Novel series.
Season 4 Cast of My Brilliant Friend:
Several other actors have previously appeared in key roles in the film, which makes sense given that the plot follows the two main characters throughout their lifetimes. Elena’s younger self was played by Elisa del Genio for the majority of Season 1 and a portion of Season 2. Margherita Mazzucco has been playing Elena for the duration of the show’s run.
Elena was also played by an older actress, Elisabetta De Palo, as a senior in a guest part, and a very young Elena was played by Ingrid del Genio in a guest role, both of which were guest appearances. Lila, the second main character, is in a similar situation. So far, she has been played by two well-known actors: Gaia Girace in the older version of Lila and Ludovica Nasti in the younger version.
With the protagonists’ lives progressing – the third book gets them closer to adulthood – we can expect to see new faces portraying old characters in the future.
Girace has already declared that he will leave the show after three episodes of the third season, and will be replaced by another actor. Girace talked about his time with TVZap. “I’m sorry to have to say goodbye to Lila’s character… “Hopefully, whoever succeeds me will adore her as much as I do, if not more.”
Furthermore, while it has not been confirmed, it is likely that Mazzucco’s role as Elena will be filled by another actor.
Season 4 of My Brilliant Friend follows the story of a brilliant friend.
Elena was engaged at the end of Season 2 and the author of a first novel that had just been published. “The Digression,” a recently released book, chronicles the evolution of her friendship with Lila, including practically all of the incidents that have occurred in front of a television audience thus far.
When Elena is reunited with Nino (Francesco Serpico), an old friend and childhood crush — as well as Lila’s ex-lover — in the dying minutes of the series finale, she gives a book talk. The series concludes with a shot of Elena, who appears happy to see Nino.
According to early indications, the third season will provide additional context for Elena and Nino’s reunion, as well as address the events of Elena Ferrante’s third novel. The following book in the series, “Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay,” sees Lila estranged from her husband and working in a sausage factory, where she is subjected to sexual harassment and violence on a daily basis.
Enzo Scanno (Giovanni Buselli and Vincenzo Vaccaro), another familiar face from their youth for whom Lila is developing feelings, is also studying computer science with her.
Elena, on the other hand, falls pregnant almost immediately after her marriage, despite her desire to wait until she has finished writing her second novel. Throughout the story, she grapples with the difficult task of managing motherhood and her literary career. When Elena runs into Nino after the book discussion, she is forced to confront her feelings for him for the first time.
