The longer the better ! After 2 years of waiting, Gomorra fans will finally be able to discover the 5th and final season of the cult Italian series. Release date, plot, cast and spin-off film: all the info on the grand finale.
DATE, NUMBER OF EPISODES, CASTING …
Expected for two years by the fans and postponed due to the health crisis, the release of the last season of Gomorra is imminent! It is indeed on November 20 that CANAL + will lift the veil on the last act of the famous Italian series.
Composed of 10 episodes shot between Naples and Riga, this 5th season brings together Salvatore Esposito (Genny Savastano), Arturo Muselli (Enzo ‘Sang Bleu’), Ivana Lotito (Azzura), but also and above all Marco d’Amore who is making his comeback in the role of Ciro Di Marzio.
WHERE DID WE STOP?
Black and rich in twists and turns, the 4th season shines its spotlight on the painful fall of the character of Patrizia. The first woman to reach the heights of Secondigliano, she opened season 4 as Genny’s successor.
But while she had managed to impose herself, to resist the misogyny of this environment (the word is weak) and to become pregnant with Michel-Angelo, she was finally caught by Genny. At the end of the season, he gives him two shots at close range before finishing him one last time on the ground.
The last scene of this 4th season therefore also marks the great comeback from the dark part of Genny. If he had attempted to switch back to legal business by becoming a respectable businessman, Gomorra’s anti-hero ultimately realizes that he cannot go against his true violent and impulsive nature.
After Patrizia’s assassination, and before joining a bunker, he utters a punchline that has obsessed fans of the series: “Gennaro Savastano è tornato ! ” (“Gennaro Savastano is back!”). It promises !
AN ULTIMATE TWILIGHT SEASON
After so much action in Season 4, Gomorra’s grand finale will be darker than ever. Centered on the theme of revenge, these final episodes open with the police and Genny’s enemies who seek him out.
“Isolated, he has no choice but to turn to the mysterious crime boss in the Ponticelli neighborhood. But all cards will be reshuffled after a stunning discovery by Gennaro”, Explains the synopsis.
Between this mad hunt in pursuit of Genny, the return of Ciro and a possible alliance between the Levantes and Don Aniello, the war of the clans for the control of drugs and the street risks reaching an unprecedented level promising an end to Breathtaking.
