'My Brilliant Friend' Finale Airs Tonight — Here's What Fans Can Expect From Season 2

By Pippa Raga

I'm so depressed that My Brilliant Friend is coming to a close tonight, the only thing keeping my spirits afloat is the prospect of Season 2, which HBO confirmed earlier this week, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Season 2 of the joint production between RAI Fiction and HBO will pick up right where My Brilliant Friend leaves off, bringing book two of the Neapolitan Novels, The Story of a New Name, to life on the small screen. "We’re thrilled that Elena Ferrante’s epic story has resonated so powerfully with viewers and critics, and we look forward to the continuing journey of Elena and Lila,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys said in a statement.

The Neapolitan Quartet follows the lifelong friendship of Elena and Lila, who grew up in an impoverished neighborhood of Naples, from their doll-playing days of childhood pretty much until they're grandmas.
