HBO will premiere the final two episodes of Season 1, based on the book My Brilliant Friend, this coming Sunday and Monday.
“We’re thrilled that Elena Ferrante’s epic story has resonated so powerfully with viewers and critics, and we look forward to the continuing journey of Elena and Lila,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys said in a statement.
