A Netflix original, Fedeltà which roughly translates to Faithfulness or Fidelity is still turning heads and headlines. It is an Italian TV drama entitled Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire, that trudges too close to controversial genres. Despite the series delving into emotional tropes such as unfaithfulness, self-discovery, and betrayal, it successfully stays away from igniting an uproar–thankfully. What it does ignite is a spark of unyielding curiosity and emotional connection that renders the audience breathless.
Now, readers are left wondering whether a sequel is in order or would have to wait a little longer. If you, too, are curious about Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire Season 2, quickly buckle up and dive in!
Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire Season 2 Release Date
Directors, Andrea Molaioli and Stefano Cipani decided to adapt Marco Missirol’s bestselling novel into a drama in late 2020. The duo collaborated with a team of four writers Alessandro Fabbri, Marco Missiroli, Elisa Amoruso, and Laura Colella. They then began production in January 2021 and Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire was finally launched on Valentine’s Eve in 2022. The six-episode series has enamoured the audience and they are left wondering about a plausible sequel ever since.
Even now, after nearly 2 years of its release, the directors and Netflix haven’t yet disclosed their plans. However, given the cliffhangers left by the debut season, a second iteration seems to be in order. Moreover, the lead actor Michele Riondino (The Young Montalbano’s protagonist) seemed to have been busy with his recent projects, The Lions of Sicily and The Count of Monte Cristo.
If the production commences soon, Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire Season 2 could be released in the final quarter of 2024 or early 2025. These are just speculations though; an official confirmation is yet to be issued.
Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire Series Overview
Even though this Italian slice-of-life drama explores the cliched tropes and storyline, it offers a fresh perspective that is sure to resonate. Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire follows Carlo Pentecoste (Michele Riondino) and Margherita Verna (Lucrezia Guidone), a supposedly “happily married couple”. When Carlo, a copywriter and professor, is caught with his student, Sofia Casadei (Carolina Sala), the duo’s relationship is left shaken. Though Carlo proves his innocence right away, the idea of shedding the restraints starts flourishing in his mind.
Moreover, Margherita, too, starts considering giving in to her feelings for her physiotherapist, Andrea (Leonardo Pazzagli). As temptation rises imminently, a seemingly perfect marriage is stretched beyond imagination. Four lives become intertwined and a journey to unveil one’s darkest shades of personalities ensues.
Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire Season 2 Plot
The 2019 novel serves as a base of what can easily be described as a tale of weaving through one’s own emotions and desires. It is a psychological mishmash of genres, testing the true definition of love. Self-introspection and controlling one’s carnal urges form the central theme of the plot. By the end of the debut season, Carlo and Margherita have divorced. But instead of pursuing their respective relationships with Sofia and Andre, they choose self-isolation. Before the curtains close, the Pentecoste couple clash against each other, brimming with sheer guilt. Though they don’t express their feelings in so many words, Margherita hints at the plausibility of their reunion.
Devotion: A Story of Love and Desire Season 2 would kindle a second chance at romance trope. It could portray Carlo and Margherita trying to forge a future together. The series would certainly revolve around the couple’s post-divorce life, which obviously isn’t remotely picturesque.
