What to expect from My Brilliant Friend Season 4?
Nino plays an important role in Elena’s personal and professional life in Season 3. Despite this, she chooses to marry Pietro. Elena has struggled to focus on her career since the birth of their daughter Elsa. Lila, on the other hand, continues to play an important role in Elena’s life. Nino’s homecoming affects the marriage of the writer and Pietro in the season finale.
When the series returns with My Brilliant Friend Season 4, the story of the third season will continue. The fourth and final book in Ferrante’s trilogy, “The Story of the Lost Child,” will form the basis for the forthcoming installment. As a result, we can see Elena break up with Pietro and try to start a new life with Nino. Things get even more complicated when she learns that Nino’s wife is expecting a child. Elena’s closest sister, Lila, will remain the only certainty in her life all the time.
Lila wants to disappear?
Despite her intellect and candid attitude, Lila is constantly trying to disappear. She disappears into the ‘future’. Elena reflects on their relationship after learning of Lila’s disappearance, and this is where Lila and Elena’s journey begins. But she tries to hide all her life, pretends to be normal, gets married and finds a career. Her attention is often tumultuous, violent and problematic. Her intellect has gotten her into more trouble than it has gotten her anywhere.
Last season we saw Margherita Mazzucco play the part of Elena Greco. However, when the series returns with My Brilliant Friend Season 4, Alba Rohrwacher will take over the role of Elena in the following season. Meanwhile, Gaia Girace appears in the character of Elena’s friend, Raffaella “Lila” Cerullo.
