Created as a prequel to the 2015 movie, ‘Suburra,’ ‘Suburra: Blood on Rome’ is an Italian crime drama that is set in Rome and draws inspiration from the eponymous novel, penned by Giancarlo De Cataldo and Carlo Bonini. It originally released on Netflix in October 2017, making it the first Italian-language original television series to drop on the streaming giant. ‘Suburra’ is based on the true events of the investigation into the Mafia Capitale.
It is a gritty tale of power clashes and corruption, prevalent among the players of organized crime, powerful politicians, and prominent churchmen. Since its premiere, the show has progressed to become a massive hit on Netflix, with critics branding it as a brutal Italian crime thriller. Many have even dubbed it as the streamer’s apt Italian response to ‘Narcos.’
The series has also drawn praises for its spectacular soundtrack and script. Therefore, it is no surprise that the show has spawned three remarkable seasons to date. Now, this brings us to the next question: what does the future hold for this incredible series? Will there be a ‘Suburra’ season 4? Let’s help you in finding answers to these questions.
Suburra Season 4 Release Date: Renewed or Cancelled?
‘Suburra’ season 3 premiered on October 30, 2020, on Netflix. It consists of six episodes with a runtime of 42–62 minutes each.
The third outing follows the aftermath of the tragic suicide of Lele. We also witness the surprise return of Manfredi, head of the Anacleti clan, who awakens from his coma. This translates to a shift in the power dynamics among all the lead characters. The story moves through the numerous alleys of Rome and concludes in an explosive finale! In short, the third edition’s conclusion wraps up all the loose threads of the entire plot that had unraveled across the seasons.
