She said, “The fact that viewers and critics alike have advanced to embrace Elena and Lila’s tale makes it all the more pleasant.

My Brilliant Friend Season 3: Plot Details!
The third season of the show will follow the third book of the series named “Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay.” There will be a time gap in the succeeding installment, which means the teenage girls will become mature women now. Below is the spoiler-free description of the third book, which will be the plot of My Brilliant Friend Season 3.
“In this third Neapolitan novel, Elena and Lila, the two girls whom viewers initially met in My Brilliant Friend, have grown to be women. Lila married at sixteen and has a growing son. She has left her brutal husband and now works as a common worker. Elena has left the community, earned her university degree, and distributed a successful novel, all of which have opened the doors to a life of learned speakers and lavishly decorated salons. Both women have pushed upon the walls of a jail that would have marked them living a life of pain, ignorance, and slavery. They are sailing on the great sea of possibilities that opened up during the 1970s. Yet they are still very much connected by a strong, unbreakable bond.”
Will Gaia Girace & Margherita Mazzucco Leave The Show?
As the girls have now become women, therefore the old cast would be replaced by the new aged cast members. The third episode of My Brilliant Friend Season 3 will be the last episode of Gaia Gracia and Margherita Mazzucco. In a recent interview, Gracia shared her feelings about leaving the show. She said, “I’m sorry to leave Lila’s role because I’ve been working on it for three years. And I’m growing up with her, and I’m sorry to give it to someone else. I hope that whoever gets my place will adore her at least a penny of what I admire her.”
