Sky released a new teaser trailer for the much-anticipated final season of GOMORRAH, the grand finale of the most famous and popular Italian television series in the world. The Sky Original cult series produced by Cattleya (part of ITV Studios) in collaboration with Beta Film, based on an idea by Roberto Saviano, from his eponymous bestseller book – is set to launch in November on Sky as well as streamed on NOW. Gomorrah – The final season will be available in all Sky markets.
The first four seasons of Gomorrah were received enthusiastically by audiences and critics alike, in Italy as well as the more than 190 territories in which it has been distributed, racking up many awards and helping to raise the bar for Italian television. Filmed in Naples and Riga, the new episodes of the show – which The New York Times recently rated as fifth out of the top 30 international shows of the past decade – have been penned by head writers Leonardo Fasoli and Maddalena Ravagli, who have also worked on the series bible along with Roberto Saviano. Gianluca Leoncini and Valerio Cilio round out the writing team.
The first five episodes of Gomorrah – The final season as well as the ninth were directed by Marco D’Amore, who also directed two episodes of Gomorrah 4 and the film The Immortal, which was a great success for Cattleya and Vision Distribution, serving as a narrative bridge between the fourth and fifth seasons; episodes six, seven, eight, and ten were directed by Claudio Cupellini, at the helm since the show debuted. Both directors are also artistic supervisors for the programme.
The teaser shows the protagonists of Sky’s iconic series back on set: Salvatore Esposito, playing Genny Savastano who was forced into hiding in a bunker at the end of the fourth season; Arturo Muselli as Enzo Sangue Blu and Ivana Lotito as Azzurra Avitabile, Genny’s wife. Marco D'Amore once again stars as Ciro Di Marzio, left for dead at the end of the third season and - as revealed in the movie The Immortal - shockingly back on the scene, alive, in Latvia.
The clash between the Levantes and Patrizia left Naples in a pile of bricks forcing Genny to give up his dream of normality and to return to action. But with the police hot on Genny’s heels, he was forced into a bunker, alone without Azzurra and little Pietro. Now his only ally is 'O Maestrale, the mysterious crime boss of Ponticelli, an eastern district of Naples. War is imminent, and his enemies are fierce. But Genny is about to make a sensational discovery: Ciro Di Marzio is alive, in Latvia. And for Genny nothing will ever be the same again.
