Here’s everything we know so far about Gomorrah season 5…

The new series sees the iconic protagonists return. Salvatore Esposito will play Genny Savastano, who was forced to hide in a bunker at the end of season 4.

Arturo Muselli again plays Enzo Sangue Blu, Ivana Lotito returns as Genny’s wife Azzurra Avitabile, and Marco D'Amore once again stars as Ciro Di Marzio.

At the start of the series, police are looking for Genny while Ciro is alive and well in Latvia. There are also new, mysterious characters preparing for an imminent clan war.

Fans can expect to see how the clash between the Levantes and Patrizia left Naples in a pile of bricks, forcing Genny to give up his dream of normality and to return to action.

He was forced into a bunker, alone without Azzurra and little Pietro - and now his only ally is 'O Maestrale, the mysterious crime boss of Ponticelli, an eastern district of Naples.

And when Genny discovers is alive, nothing will ever be the same again.
