The brilliant coming-of-age drama returns for a second series.
From director Saverio Costanzo (In Treatment, Hungry Hearts) and based on the internationally bestselling Neapolitan novels by Elena Ferrante, the critically acclaimed global smash hit returns for a second series.
Lila and Elena are now sixteen. Lila is just married, but worries that she has lost her identity in taking her husband’s name. Elena is a model student, but has realised that she is not happy, either in or outside of her neighbourhood.
During a holiday in Ischia, the two girls reunite with their childhood acquaintance Nino Sarratore, now a university student with great prospects. The encounter will forever change the nature of their bond, propelling the girls onto two completely contrasting paths.
This second series of My Brilliant Friend follows the two girls’ friendship in this new chapter of their lives, as their youthful vitality blooms and their close connection is threatened, as the girls follow, lose and find each other again.
