James R | On 13, Apr 2020
Mafia Only Kills in Summer returns to Walter Presents for a second season this week, once again boasings a star-studded cast and a voice narration by Pif.
Based on Pierfrancesco Diliberto, a.k.a. Pif’s, film of the same name, the series promises to charm audiences once again with its darkly comic perspective on life in 70s Mafia central.
On the verge of escaping Sicily, the Giammarresi family were bewildered by Salvatore’s decision to disembark the boat; in Salvatore’s mind, running away would concede victory to those who wished to turn his home into a wasteland of corpses and concrete. The second season picks up at the crucial moment when the family return home, a heroic and exemplary act to live their lives with the constant threat of possible Mafia retaliation. Wracked by doubt, Lorenzo is ready to ask to be transferred to the North and to leave behind his accursed city and all of its ghosts. However, no one else in his family will follow him. Angela is loved up with Marco, Salvatore can’t stop thinking about Alice and Pia is sucked into a ‘perfect’ new teaching job. But it’s hard to avoid danger when the person pulling those strings is Mafia boss Tommaso Buscetta, for whom Pia has always had a weakness…
Season 2, starring Edoardo Buscetta, Claudio Gioè, Anna Foglietta, Francesco Scianna, premieres all at once as a box set on Walter Presents on Friday 17th April.
