Here's everything you need to know about The Next 365 Days:
Is The Next 365 Days coming to Netflix?
Update: The Next 365 Days is now available to stream on Netflix.
Following the footsteps of the popular Fifty Shades movies, Netflix already confirmed a third 365 Days film, so yes, is already in production, and its official title is The Next 365 Days.
While the first movie of the trilogy was acquired by Netflix, the second and third movies are officially being produced as Netflix Original movies.
365 Days: This Day and The Next 365 Days planned to shoot back-to-back with the same team of writers, directors, and producers returning for both, so expect the third movie to arrive on Netflix in the near future.
“I’m hugely honored that the remaining two parts of my 365 Days Trilogy – This Day & Next 365 Days will be brought to life on screen by Netflix. I’m so excited to show fans of my novels all over the world this fresh look at the characters and to continue Laura and Massimo’s story,” said author Blanka Lipinska.
The Next 365 Days Release Date: When will it be released on Netflix?
Update: You can watch The Next 365 Days on Netflix now.
The gap of time between the first 365 Days movie and 365 Days: This Day was about two years, but this doesn't mean that fans will have to wait for two years before The Next 365 Days comes out. Since Netflix confirmed that the second and third movies were filmed back-to-back, it's likely that the team behind them won't take as long.
According to the official announcement, Netflix is planning to release both 365 Days: This Day and The Next 365 Days globally in 2022, so expect the third film to release later this year.
The streaming giant surprisingly announced the second movie's release date only about a month ahead of its release, so the same could happen with The Next 365 Days.
Netflix has officially announced the release date of The Next 365 Days: August 19, 2022. We double-checked the list of new movies and TV shows coming to Netflix in August 2022, and it includes The Next 365 Days.

What happened in the end of 365 Days: This Day?
In the climax of 365 Days: This Day, Laura was taken by the wrong bodyguard when she arrived at the meeting. Massimo and Nacho run to find her, and discover Laura being confronted by Adriano (Massimo's twin brother) and Anna.
It turns out that it was Adriano who was hooking up with Anna, but Laura initially thought that she caught Massimo cheating on her.
Back to the climax: Adriano is holding Laura hostage, taunting his brother about Laura's miscarriage. Before Massimo can deal with that truth though, Laura tries to break free but is shot by Anna, who is shot by Nacho in turn. Masimo then shoots his brother before he can shoot him.
Nacho leaves the scene, looking unhappy about what happened, and it's unclear whether or not Laura survived the shot, but we already know that a third movie is coming, so we already know how she will survive.
The story of 365 Days is clearly not over.
The Next 365 Days Plot: What will it be about?
The official description of The Next 365 Days movie reads:
"Laura and Massimo's relationship hangs in the balance as they try to overcome trust issues hile a tenacious Nacho works to push them apart."
Without giving away too many spoilers, The Next 365 Days is expected to conclude the romantic and erotic story of Massimo (played by Michele Morrone) and Laura (Anna-Maria Sieklucka). Since the first two movies are based on the first two books by Blanka Lipińska, the third 365 Days movie is expected to be based on the third book, titled The Next 365 Days.
The official synopsis on Amazon for The Next 365 Days reads:
As the wife of Don Massimo Torricelli, one of the most dangerous Mafia bosses in Sicily, Laura’s life is a roller coaster. She is often at risk, the potential target of Massimo’s unscrupulous enemies who will stop at nothing to destroy the powerful man. And when Laura is seriously injured in an attack, pregnant and fighting to survive, Massimo faces the toughest decision of his life. What will his life be without Laura? Will he be able to raise their child alone? What will the fate of his family be, and whose 365 days may come to a close?
Based on these plot details, we can say that Massimo and Laura's relationship doesn't get easier in the third movie. The end of 365 Days: This Day clearly sets up Laura's plot for the third movie, and she will likely get kidnapped again by Massimo.
In the third novel, Laura loses her control over the company and settles for friendship, adopting a dog named Prada. However, her romance with Nacho start to blossom and Massimo begins to fall into drug use.
Laura and Nacho fall for each other and a jealous Massimo kills Laura's dog as an angry warning of sorts, but he later denies doing so.
However, the The Next 365 Days movie could still make some changes to its source material, so don't expect to know everything that will happen just by reading The Next 365 Days.
Massimo then attends Domenico and Olga's wedding with another woman, making Laura jealous. He successfully tries to turn her against Nacho and she goes home with Massimo, only to realize that he deceived her.
Laura ends up returning to Massimo's clutches and she plans her escape, and eventually returns to Nacho. Laura and Nacho then gets married and is expecting their first child.
One of the biggest questions is who Laura will ultimately end up: Massimo or Nacho? But if the film follows the third book beat by beat, we already know what will happen between Laura, Massimo, and Nacho.
The Next 365 Days Cast: Who will return and who are the newcomers?
Netflix already confirmed that Michele Morrone and Anna-Maria Sieklucka are reprising their roles as the lead characters, Massimo and Laura. Magdalena Lamparksa will reprise her role as Olga, Laura's companion, and other cast members from the first two 365 Days movies are expected to return in The Next 365 Days.
Simone Susinna, who was introduced in 365 Days: This Day as Massimo's rival, Marcelo "Nacho" Matos, is also expected to return in the third movie. Nacho is a longtime enemy and gangster willing to destroy Massimo and win over Laura.
