Originally titled ‘Incastrati,’ Netflix’s Italian series ‘Framed! A Sicilian Murder Mystery’ centers around Salvo and Valentino, two TV technicians who get entwined in the chaos and consequences of the murder of Alberto Gambino by chance. Set in Sicily, Italy, the comedy series progresses through the predicaments Salvo and Valentino confront when they try their best to disassociate themselves from the murder.
Directed by Salvatore Ficarra and Valentino Picone, the show was highly acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, receiving praises for its engaging narrative and performances while recording impressive viewership on the streaming platform. The first season of the show ends with numerous unresolved questions and on a cliffhanger, making the admirers wonder about the prospects of the second season. On that note, let us share everything you need to know about the show’s season 2!
Framed! A Sicilian Murder Mystery Season 2 Release Date
‘Framed! A Sicilian Murder Mystery’ season 1 premiered in its entirety on January 27, 2022, on Netflix. Prior to its global release, season 1 released in its entirety online in Italy on January 1, 2022. The first season comprises six episodes with a runtime of around 30 minutes each.
As far as the second round is concerned, Netflix has not yet released an official statement regarding the renewal of ‘Framed! A Sicilian Murder Mystery’ for season 2. However, there’s a possibility that the streaming giant will renew the show sooner than later considering the way the first season ends ambiguously and abruptly. Since the inaugural installment does not conclude its narrative and ends with numerous questions unanswered, we can deduce that the show is conceived as a multi-season project.
When asked about the prospects of the second season by the press, directors and lead performers Ficarra and Picone did not reveal any discussions happening with Netflix concerning the sophomore season. Still, the noteworthy viewership recorded by the show on Netflix Italy may influence the platform to greenlight the second installment. If the show gets renewed soon, we can expect ‘Framed! A Sicilian Murder Mystery’ to release sometime in Q4 2022.
