My Brilliant Friend Season 4: Expected Plot
Elena was engaged at the conclusion of Season 2, and she was also the author of a debut novel that had just been published. The released book, titled “The Digression,” covers the growth of her friendship with Lila — practically all of the events that have taken place thus far in front of the television audience.
Elena gives a book talk in the last minutes of the series finale, where she is reunited with Nino (Francesco Serpico), an old friend and childhood crush — as well as an ex-lover of Lila’s — whom she hasn’t seen in several years.
The series concludes with an image of a beaming Elena, who appears to be overjoyed to see Nino. According to early indications, the third season would provide further background for Elena and Nino’s reunion while also covering the events of Elena Ferrante’s third novel.
The following novel in the series, “Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay,” has Lila now estranged from her husband and working in a sausage factory, where she is subjected to constant sexual harassment and assault.
At the same time as she’s working, Lila is also studying computer science with Enzo Scanno (Giovanni Buselli and Vincenzo Vaccaro), another familiar face from their childhood, for whom she is developing feelings.
Meanwhile, Elena becomes pregnant almost immediately after her marriage, despite her desire to wait until she has finished writing her second novel. Through the course of the book, she grapples with the difficult task of juggling parenthood with her literary career.
When Elena runs into Nino again after the book discussion, she is forced to confront her feelings for him for the first time. It’s safe to say that the third season of Elena and Lila will be just as good as the first two, thanks to a book that’s packed with riveting drama from Elena and Lila’s lives.
My Brilliant Friend Season 4: Release Date
The third season of My Brilliant Friend debuted on February 28, 2022, and it consisted of eight episodes with a total running duration of 43 and 67 minutes. Given that the fourth season was ordered in March 2022, the new season should debut by 2023.
Sadly, Season 4 will serve as the drama series last season. Sources claim that the fourth season, like the first three, will have eight episodes.

Review of My Brilliant Friend Season 3
We follow Elena for a number of years as she travels Lila’s route of marriage, procreation, and ultimately being tricked by Nino once more. Not by herself, Elena. However, not everything is about relationships, at least not romantic ones, for Elena and Lila.
Lila outperforms her friend Enzo in the quickly developing field of information technology, but Elena? Elena publishes two books over ten years while Pietro is typically at work.
Both a personal novel and later a more academic one centre on what it’s like to be a woman. There are other things happening in this novel besides Lila and Elena’s rivalry.
Naples and the entire country are experiencing a fight between communism and fascism. As the Solara family grows, people and organisations that try to stand in their way must either submit or perish.
As a result, we’re left with an intense season that launches Elena and Lila into adulthood and puts an end to their adolescent drama.
