The fifth season of Gomorra will be the last. The news had been circulating for some time but now it has been made official during the presentation of all the original Sky news and also confirmed by the actors of the TV series, Salvatore Esposito and Marco D'Amore. The filming of the final episodes started again a few days ago, after the sudden interruption caused by the outbreak of the pandemic.
Marco D'Amore, during the 77th Venice Film Festival had expressed his enthusiasm for the return on the set, telling journalists all the safety rules that characterized it. Of course, the distancing guidelines will not affect the quality of the product: the last season of Gomorra will be spectacular, as the actors and the whole production promise. The filming so far has involved the territory of Naples, but the crew will also move outside Italy. In the meantime, Salvatore and Marco publish on Instagram a really exciting post.
Gomorra 5: started filming
As announced by Marco D'amore, the filming of Gomorra 5 began in September 2020. The return to the set has been particular for everyone: distancing, masks and other anti-county measures have marked the different scenes. Despite this, the production and the cast have expressed all their enthusiasm about the beginning of the work.
The fifth season of Gomorra will be directed by Claudio Cupellini and Marco D'Amore, the interpreter of the main character Ciro Di Marzio, who has already participated in the direction of the fourth season and directed the spin-off L'Immortale. The screenplay is instead written by Maddalena Ravigli, Valerio Cilio, Leonardo Fasoli and Gianluca Leoncini. The setting is the Neapolitan hinterland that has always characterized the TV series, but there will also be some scenes shot abroad, in the city of Riga.
