The parallels between “365 Days” and the “Fifty Shades” trilogy are clear and immediate, and the former received overwhelmingly negative reviews from critics due to the stark glorification of the Mafia and an overdose of sex footage. often involving sexual violence. Despite the problematic nature of the narrative, “365 Days” received worldwide attention, becoming one of the most-watched Netflix erotic dramas in 2020. Lipińska, who authored the source material, expressed her excitement about continuing Laura and Massimo’s story, which will be told in two more episodes outside of “365 Days” (via Variety):
“This is undoubtedly the story of a woman. How naive, how blind we can be, how much we love, how we learn from our mistakes and how we have the opportunity to correct them. I hope the public will understand and see Laura’s new independence and how her life is affected by the decisions she makes. I’m beyond excited for fans to find out what’s next for Laura and Massimo.
I’m proud because I created a story that is now known around the world, proud of the actors for their dedication to the project, and proud of the crew who worked hard on the film. One thing I can promise you is that it’s not over yet!”
The trailer shows the central couple reunited and having the time of their lives together with the intention of embarking on a fresh start. However, dark secrets threaten to tear them apart, as Massimo’s family ties lead to a host of complications, while a new man, Nacho (Simone Susinna), tries to get closer to Laura and gain her trust at all costs. The sequel to the erotic drama has plenty of action (in the bedroom and beyond), dangerous betrayals, family secrets, and more toxic coming and going dynamics.
Along with characters played by Sieklucka, Morrone, and Susinna, returning characters will include Laura’s best friend Olga (Magdalena Lamparska) and Don Massimo’s trusted lieutenant Domenico (Otar Saralidze). “365 Days: This Day” was written by Mojca Tirs, Blanka Lipińska and Tomasz Mandes, while it was produced by Ewa Lewandowska, Tomasz Mandes and Maciej Kawulski.
“365 Days: This Day” will be available to stream on Netflix on April 27, 2022.
