“The Prodigious Friend” will finally be back with a long-awaited season 3 which is revealed thanks to a trailer posted online by Canal +. The series is due to resume soon, in 2022.
The Prodigious Frienda faithful adaptation of the novels by Elena Ferrante
By adapting Elena Ferrante’s novels, we can say that Rai and HBO took their time. Season 1 of The Prodigious Friend was released at the end of 2018, and the second arrived in April 2020 on Canal+ (which broadcasts the series in France). However, the wait was worth it so far. During sixteen episodes we followed, in the 1950s, Elena and Lila’s childhood, two young girls who become friends in a suburb of Naples. Both grew up, became teenagers and then women, and took different paths. Under Elena’s gazette series depicts Italian life at the time, made up of poverty, violence, but also changes at the onset of the 1960s. A high-quality show that we advise you to discover if not already done.
Season 3 is finally showing!
The story of The Prodigious Friend will therefore continue with a season 3 that finally comes from unveiling its trailer. Canal+ offers us these first images (in one article) who now present 1970s Italy. This third season will therefore follow the plot of the novel That which flees and that which remains. We will see in particular Elena back in Naples where she will discover the laborious working conditions of Lila in a factory. The latter, still so rebellious, will not let herself go, and join the communist party which will lead to strong violence.
Many other events take place in the novel and are currently not shown in the trailer. But we suspect that season 3 will not hide them. It now remains to wait for a release date which should not belong. Until then, you can always (re)watch the two seasons of The Prodigious Friend on MyCanal.
