Suburra: Blood on Rome (Italian: Suburra - La serie) is an Italian crime drama streaming television series set in Rome. It is based on the 2015 film Suburra, in turn inspired by the novel of the same name by Giancarlo De Cataldo and Carlo Bonini. The series was developed by Daniele Cesarano, Barbara Petronio, Ezio Abbate and Fabrizio Bettelli for Netflix, making it its first Italian-language original television series. The show premiered on 6 October 2017 and ran for three seasons totaling 24 episodes until 30 October 2020. It was produced by Cattleya in association with Rai Fiction and Bartleby Film. Rai Fiction was not involved in the production of the third and final season.
Suburra draws from the real life events of the Mafia Capitale investigation and focuses on power clashes and corruption among organized crime, politicians and churchmen. The series revolves around Aureliano Adami (Alessandro Borghi), an Ostia-based gang member, and his relations with Alberto "Spadino" Anacleti (Giacomo Ferrara), a Sinti gang member, and Gabriele "Lele" Marchilli (Eduardo Valdarnini), the only son of a policeman who becomes involved in crime. Samurai (Francesco Acquaroli), an antagonist to Adami, is the head of Roman organized crime and contact for the Sicilian Mafia in Rome; he approaches politician Amedeo Cinaglia (Filippo Nigro) to aid in his Ostia affairs. Sara Monaschi (Claudia Gerini) is a Vatican financial auditor for lands in Ostia.
The world premiere of the series was on 1 September 2017 at the 74th Venice Film Festival, where the first two episodes were screened as part of the Il Cinema nel Giardino section. All episodes of the first season premiered worldwide on 6 October 2017. The series was also set to air on the Italian television network Rai 2 in 2018, but its premiere was postponed to 15 February 2019. On 30 January 2018, the series was renewed for a second season, whose production began on 3 April 2018 and ended on 8 August 2018. The eight-episode second season was released on 22 February 2019. On 2 April 2019, Netflix announced the renewal for a third season. On 4 December 2019, Netflix announced that the series' third season would be its last. The season was released on 30 October 2020.
