The Gallo family has not finished moving TF1 viewers. While the channel had not, until now, not formalized the order of a season 2 of I promise you, Guillaume Labbé, the interpreter of Mickaël, revealed to us during an interview granted as part of the Festival of Monte-Carlo television that this second batch was indeed on track since the shooting of these new episodes will begin this Tuesday, June 22 and will continue all summer between Paris and La Rochelle.
And according to our information, this second season will be marked by a nice novelty behind the camera since Marilou Berry, who plays Maud in this French adaptation of This Is Us, will produce part of the 12 episodes and will therefore have to direct his play partners alternately with Renaud Bertrand, who will direct the remaining episodes and had already officiated on the first season.
A news that enthuses Guillaume Labbé, who does not seem at all to apprehend the fact of seeing the one who embodies his sister on the screen become his director on this second salvo of I promise you. “With Marilou, it went really well in the work both in season 1, I felt that we spoke the same language”, he explained to us today in an interview. “So that doesn’t scare me at all, because I feel like I understand her really well. And I think when she gives me directions, we’ll get along. And I’m sure she does. will also be listening “.
“Of course, I’ve never had her as a director before, so I don’t know, but I’ve been told a lot of good things about her. I’m really happy for her. Marilou is delighted, and already in the preparation I find that ‘she prints something that I like “. To discover the episodes of I promise you, directed by Marilou Berry, you will have to be patient, however, since the series should not return to TF1 before the first half of 2022.
The actress, who will also soon be in the credits of the mini-series My Angel opposite Muriel Robin, is in any case not her first attempt behind the camera since she has already made two feature films released respectively in 2016 and 2019: Joséphine rounds off, the sequel to the comedy Joséphine in which she played the title role, and Quand on crie au loup, with Gérard Jugnot and Bérengère Krief.
