Kino Lorber has announced it will release season two of the Italian crime drama series “Gomorrah” — which has been called Italy’s answer to “Breaking Bad” — on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Dec. 7 (order date Nov. 9).
The series debuted in January 2016 on Sky Atlantic and has since been sold in early 200 countries, including the United States, where it is currently being streamed on HBO Max.
The gangster show from Stefano Sollima (Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, Romanzo Criminale) is based on Roberto Saviano’s best-selling book and the subsequent award-winning film of the same name.
“Gomorrah” is set in Naples in the 2010s. The series follows Ciro Di Marzio, a member of the Savastano Camorra clan of Secondigliano, headed by Pietro Savastano. When Pietro is arrested, an internal power struggle breaks out with his rivals as well as between the “old guard” of the clan and the “young guard” headed by his son, Gennaro Savastano.
At the start of season two it appears that the era of the Savastano clan, which once reigned supreme over Naples, has ended, leading to a power vacuum.
Earlier, Kino Lorber announced the Oct. 26 release of season one sets of “Gomorrah” on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
