The controversial Netflix film 365 Days recently received a sequel, This Day, and fans are eagerly anticipating a third instalment. The exciting news is that part three has already been confirmed, ensuring that fans of Laura and Massimo’s narrative will be able to watch what happens next.
From premise to likely release date to when it was confirmed, that’s about all we know about 365 Days 3, dubbed The Next 365 Days, thus far.
When did The Next 365 Days become official?
Netflix said in May 2021 that the second and third films would be shot back-to-back from May to June 2021, which is great news for the release of the following feature!
Lukasz Kluskiewicz, Netflix’s Content Acquisition Manager for CEE and Poland, said at the time, “In the year 2020, one of the most popular films among our members was 365 Days. We’re collaborating closely with Blanka Lipinska, the author of the 365 Days trilogy and the film’s screenwriter, to bring Laura and Massimo’s story to the big screen. As our characters continue to expand and learn more about themselves, their journey together is full of twists and turns.”
What may the theme of The Next 365 Days be?
The original film’s contentious premise had mafia member Massimo abduct sales director Laura and hold her prisoner for a year (365 days) in order to make her fall in love with him.
Laura and Massimo (Anna-Maria Sieklucka and Michele Morrone) were attempting to live a normal life following inter-mafia warfare in the sequel 365 Days: This Day when another guy began competing for her devotion.
So, what might happen in the third instalment? It’s based on the novel The Next 365 Days, and the official synopsis reads, “Laura’s life is a roller coaster as the wife of Don Massimo Torricelli, one of Sicily’s most dangerous Mafia bosses.” Massimo’s unscrupulous opponents will stop at nothing to harm the strong man, and she is frequently in danger.
“Massimo must make the most difficult decision of his life when Laura is gravely hurt in an attack, pregnant, and struggling for her life. What will he do without Laura in his life? Will he be able to care for their child on his own? What will become of his family, and whose 365 days are about to end?”
In The Next 365 Days, who will be cast?
Michele Morrone and Anna-Maria Sieklucka, who play Massimo and Laura, will return in Part 3, along with Magdalena Lamparska and Otar Saralidze, according to the official Netflix statement. Simone Susinna will play Nacho, a new character.
What is the expected release date for The Next 365 Days?
While the second picture was released at the end of April 2022 and was shot concurrently with the third, there is no information on when the third will be released. Let’s hope that happens in late 2022 or early 2023!
