While the judicial series ends tonight on France 2 with the broadcast of the last two episodes, will we watch a follow-up to the affairs of the partner company led by Idriss Touma, a lawyer searching for salvation whose life does not exceed more than a thread?
Screenwriter Lionel Olinga (Sheriff), the series Le Code plunges us into the legal mysteries of a partner company led by Idriss Touma (Daniel Ngo Lube), a former lawyer for the rich and powerful who decides to payback after a man, underwriting the victim of his practices, attempts to assassinate him.
Associated with Nadia Ayyad (Nadra Ayadi), a committed lawyer, and Jane Vanhoeven (Christian Millet), the former glory of a syndicate who has postponed her retirement, Idriss will defend the most disadvantaged defendants against a harsh justice system. But he’s playing against the clock: a sliver of an inoperable bullet lodged in his skull threatens to kill him at any moment…
Broadcasting over three evenings on France 2, Le Code persuaded the audience, attracting just over 3 million viewers in the first week (or 14.8% of PDAs) and about 2.9 million people in the second week (13, 8%) according to Paris.
At the end of the last two episodes of tonight, Idris, who has received bad news from the neurologist, will no longer be able to hide his secret from his associates and from his daughter who discovered his findings. Her condition did not improve, she had only a few months left to live.
Upset, Nadia announces to Idris her intention to leave the cabinet after this revelation, feeling betrayed and unable to bear the thought of losing her partner and boyfriend. Chloe (Wendy Nieto), Idris’ daughter, is angry at the thought of losing her father again when they were barely finding each other. Finally, Elodie (Catherine Demaev), who is struggling to hide her feelings for the lawyer, sees the possibility of their relationship fading away…
If a second season is actually written, as Lionel Olinga revealed during the Séries Mania festival in September where the series premiered in preview, will we see the character played by Daniel Njo Lobé again in the future? Episodes after this revelation?
“For us, Idris’ character is really the entry point“, It is to explain.”This is how we get into this framework. Then the idea was to get people excited about the intrigues, no matter which lawyer would deal with them. And through that, pay attention to all of them. sBecause between two murders and two rapes, we want to be able to handle things differently so that we don’t talk about one truth.“
“There, we’re writing Season 2, the narrative arcs are booked out as we advance on new episodes: There Experiment about euthanasia, things like the ones that show” a statement. “We cannot say that there is an absolute truth: there is There are conflicting facts, and for this, it takes several cases to be able to question them while entertaining.“
France 2 has not yet given the green light for the second season of the series, and therefore the fate of the hero remains in suspense at the end of these last two episodes. With the richness of the topics you tackle through the prism of justice and the lawyers who represent them, let’s hope this new judicial series has convinced the channel to change the article.
Until then, you can find the entire first season of The Code on the SALTO streaming platform!
