My Brilliant Friend Plot and Cast
The fourth and final season is based on Ferrante’s book The Story of the Lost Child, which follows Elena and Lila into their 60s. As a result, we might see Elena break up with Pietro and try to start a new life with Nino. Things are only about to get more complicated when she learns that Nino’s wife is expecting a child. Elena’s oldest friend Lila will be the one constant in her life throughout it all.
Elena “Lenù” Greco is played by Margherita Mazzucco in Season 3, but Alba Rohrwacher will take over in Season 4. Rohrwacher is no stranger to the show since she was Elena’s voice for the first three seasons. Gaia Grace, on the other hand, plays Elena’s titular friend, Raffaella “Lila” Cerullo. The role could, however, be recast for the new iteration. Although no official announcement has been made, Luisa Ranieri is expected to face Lila in the next round.
We will also get to see Anna Rita Vitolo, Luca Gallone, Antonio Buonanno, Giovanni Amura, Matteo Cecchi , and Francesco Serpico.
