This post was recently reviewed and is still accurate as of December 2021.
Elena Ferrante’s novels were adapted into an Italian drama series, called Neapolitan Novels, based on them. The program has already released two seasons, with the second (an eight-episode series) being an adaptation of the second book.
The series will return for a third installment, according to the creators. The third season is an adaptation of the third book in Lenu and Lila’s narrative, entitled The Search.
When Will the Third Season of ‘My Brilliant Friend’ Premiere?
The second season of the series aired in Italy in February 2020 before being released on HBO in the United States in May. On June 19, 2017, the series was aired in the United Kingdom on Sky Atlantic. Elena (Margherita Mazzucco) and Lila (Gaia Girace) are two young girls in 1950s Naples, Italy, who become friends while dealing with the difficulties of adolescence.
According to Vulture, HBO President Francesca Orsi stated in a statement, ‘The fact that fans and critics alike have continued to embrace Elena and Lila’s tale makes it all the more rewarding, and we thank the entire team led by Saverio Costanzo for their tireless efforts on the second season.
‘We can’t wait to tell the next chapter of Elena and Lila’s story,’ says the director. The release schedule for season 3 may suggest a later 2022 premiere than previous seasons. However, considering COVID-19 epidemic limitations, there may be delays.
What Is the Story of Season 3?
Season 1 was inspired by The 9th Wave, while Season 2 is based on The third book will be adapted from the tale of the third novel, as Lenu and Lila’s friendship will be pushed to its limits. There will be a fourth season of the drama series, as there are four volumes in the series.
Who Will Appear In Season 3 of ‘My Brilliant Friend’?
The two main characters, Lila and Elena, will have to ‘age up’ for their roles as the tale is set in adulthood, where Lila leaves her spouse to work and Elena becomes a university graduate with a book. This might imply a completely different casting.
According to TVZap, the actress who plays Lila, Gaia Girace, is departing her job three episodes into Season 3. According to Bustle, she’s leaving midway through Season 3. I’m sorry to see Lila go because I’ve spent the past three years developing her. I’m sorry to leave it to someone else,’ Girace added.
‘I’m sure that when I retire, my replacement will adore her at least a fraction of the way that I do.’ This implies that Elena, the teenage version of Margherita Mazzucco’s character, may also be played by a new actor with greater experience.
