The first season of Giancarlo Fontana and Giuseppe G. Stasi’s TV series The Bad Guy (starring Luigi Lo Cascio and Claudia Pandolfi), which made its debut at the Turin Film Festival, has just come to an end on Prime Video. And now fans are speculating all about The Bad Guy season 2!
Nino Scotellaro, a prosecutor at the forefront of the war against the mafia, is the subject of the series’ narrative. After being wrongfully convicted of conspiring with the Cosa Nostra, he is presumed dead and is forced to assume a new identity as the infamous” Balduccio Remora, which gives the program its name.
