HBO’s My Brilliant Friend, based on Elena Ferrante’s four-book Neapolitan series, will also end with a final chapter. Season 4 will follow Ferrante’s The Story Of The Lost Child, which picks up with Elena and Lila’s friendship on the rocks in the late 1970s when the network announced the Italian-language drama’s renewal in March.
Despite the many changes that will result from the time jump, the bond between the women who are at its core will remain the common thread of the story.
“When we decided to bring Elena Ferrante’s masterpiece Neapolitan Novels to the screen, we knew that Elena and Lila’s story had to be told in its entirety,” HBO executive vice president Francesca Orsi said in a statement on March 22.
“We are excited to finish the quartet and know that The Story of the Lost Child will bring the series to a close with the same heart, intimacy, and epic storytelling that has defined Elena and Lila’s journey from the beginning.”
My Brilliant Friend Season 4 Cast
A new actress, Alba Rohrwacher, will take over the role of Elena “Lenù” Greco in season four. For the first three seasons of the show, Rohrwacher served as Elena’s voice.
Raffaella “Lila” Cerullo, Elena’s best friend, is played by Gaia Girace. For the new edition, however, the character could be recast.
In the next round, it’s likely that Luisa Ranieri will meet Lila, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. No further appearances from Elisa Greco’s friends Francesca Montuori, Chiara Celotto, and Sophia Protino are planned.
No matter who plays what, you can count on seeing a lot of different actors portraying both new and old roles.
Giovanni Amura (Stefano Carracci) and Matteo Cecchi (Pietro Airoto) were cast as Stefano Carracci and Immacolata Greco, respectively, in Luca Gallone’s portrayal of Vittorio Greco in the film adaptation of Antonio Buonanno’s novel of the same name (Nino Sarratore)
My Brilliant Friend Season 4 Plot
In season 3, Nino has a significant impact on Elena’s professional and personal life. Despite this, she chooses Pietro as her husband. As a new mother, Elena has found it difficult to focus on her profession, as she has just given birth to Elsa.
Elena’s relationship with Lila hasn’t changed, though. When Nino returns in the season finale, Pietro and the writer’s marriage is impacted.
For the following film, “The Story of the Lost Child” by Ferrante will be used as a source for ideas. We may see Elena break up with Pietro and start anew with Nino as a result of this. Things will only get more difficult for her once she learns that Nino’s wife is expecting a child. Lila, Elena’s first and best friend, will always be there for her.
My Brilliant Friend Season 4 Release Date
on HBO on February 28, 2022, the third season of ‘My Brilliant Friend’ was premiered and ended on April 18, 2022.
From February 6, 2022, to February 27, 2022, the season aired on Rai 1 in Italy before it premiered in the United States. Between 43 to 67 minutes, each of the eight episodes in the third volume clocks in.
Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming fourth season. A new season of the show has been ordered for March 22, 2022, which will please fans.
Sadly, this will be the final episode of the television drama series. The upcoming season, like the previous three, is expected to have eight episodes, according to reliable sources.
In contrast, the release date for round 4 has not yet been determined. Season three took over two years to arrive, compared to the first season’s arrival in a year and a half.
The outbreak of COVID-19 may be responsible for the lag time. It’s unlikely to be a problem in the future, especially since production on Season 4 has already begun, according to reports.
Season 4 of ‘My Brilliant Friend is expected to launch in the second quarter of 12 January 2023, at the earliest, due to the fact that new seasons of the show will debut in both Italy and the United States in the same month.
