New recruit of “Munch” last year in the role of lawyer Blanche Braque, Marilou Berry is absent from season 4 currently broadcast on TF1. Will we see her again in future episodes? Or is his departure final?
Munch, the crazy lawyer embodied by Isabelle Nanty, made her comeback last Thursday on TF1 with an unprecedented season 4 which, for its launch, gathered 4.44 million viewers on average, for a market share of 21% on women responsible for purchasing under 50 (FRDA-50).
And if this new batch of episodes, which continues this evening at 9:05 p.m. on the front page, started with the unexpected death of Hubert Bellanger, played since the very beginning of the series by Lucien Jean-Baptiste, it is also marked by the absence of Marilou Berry, who had yet joined Munch in season 3 in the recurring role of Blanche Braque.
A lawyer who was also the half-sister of the heroine and who had therefore come to spice up the intrigues and the daily life of the Munchovski and Bellanger law firm for the six episodes broadcast in 2020. Party at the end of season 3 , can we hope to see Blanche again in one or more parts of season 4?
The answer is no, since Marilou Berry told us at the beginning of the year, when promoting I promise you, that she was engaged for only one season of Munch: “No, I will not participate in season 4. It was an invitation for one season only”.
To fill the lack of Lucien Jean-Baptiste and Marilou Berry, the writers of Munch have however introduced two new characters that fans of the series should quickly adopt: Mathieu Scheffer, the love of Gabrielle Munchovski, played by Hippolyte Girardot , and Samia, a sassy new intern camped by Lola Andreoni.
We imagine that in the event of season 5 of Munch, a return of Marilou Berry in the skin of Blanche Braque is still possible, even if neither the channel, nor the main interested party have spoken on this subject for the moment. Especially since Marilou Berry is already busy since she plays Maud in I promise you, the French adaptation of This Is Us, which will return soon for a season 2 on TF1.
And which, if the success continues, should experience several more seasons, like the original series broadcast on NBC in the United States, which will end at the end of its sixth season.
