Suburra Season 2: Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

Netflix’s Suburra is an amazing Italian-American crime drama web television series set in Rome. The series is prequel to the 2015 film Suburra, in turn inspired by the novel of the same name by Giancarlo De Cataldo and Carlo Bonini. The series was created by Daniele Cesarano and Barbara Petronio. It was Netflix’s first Italian-language original television series. All episodes of the first season premiered worldwide on October 6, 2017.

Suburra marks the platform’s first-ever venture into Italian language, and it’s safe to say that the first season has shown itself to be a hit. So when will you get to find out where else the story goes? Here’s everything we know about if (and when) there will be a second season of Suburra: Blood on Rome.

Suburra Season 2 Cast: Who’s in it?

The second season sees Barbara Petronio back in charge as head writer and will feature the same cast as the first, toplining Alessandro Borghi as Ostia mob boss Aureliano. While director Andrea Molaioli is back on board, Michele Placido, who directed the first two episodes of Season 1, is not. Instead, new helmer Piero Messina, a former assistant to Paolo Sorrentino, has been recruited. Messina’s first feature, Sicily-set “The Wait,” starring Juliette Binoche, made the cut for the 2015 Venice competition.

The protagonists are the same who conquered the audience in the first season: Aureliano (Alessandro Borghi), Spadino (Giacomo Ferrara) and Lele (Eduardo Valdarnini), Sara Monaschi (Claudia Gerini), an ambitious financial consultant collaborating with the Church, the politician Amedeo Cinaglia (Filippo Nigro) and the unscrupulous boss Samurai (Francesco Acquaroli).

Suburra Season 2 Plot: What is it about?

The series, based on the novel of the same title, is set in Rome and describes a fight over land in a seaside town of Ostia that spirals into a deadly battle between organized crime, corrupt politicians and the Vatican. Set in contemporary Rome, where corruption runs rampant, “Suburra” is considered Italy’s answer to “Narcos” and revolves around the Vatican, the mob, and local politicos vying for control of Ostia, the seaside town just outside the Italian capital that is being developed into a gambling paradise. The first season featured plenty of color-saturated violence, intrigue, and a scene in which a high-ranking priest has a heart attack during a cocaine-fueled orgy.

Suburra Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

On January 30, 2018, the series was renewed for a second season, whose production began on April 3, 2018. Season 2 will have 8 new episodes released simultaneously. If the show sticks to patterns followed in the past, it’s likely that it’ll return sometime around fall 2018. We generally see around a year between each season of Netflix original series.
