An online petition was also launched in 2020 su Change.Org to move from words to deeds and convince those in duty to follow up on Boris: the collection of signatures has reached almost 6.500 participants before concluding; and managed to stir things up, because in 2021 the long-awaited fourth season of Boris was finally announced. Several cast members supported by sharing the petition on their social media to spread it as much as possible, but also to plead the cause themselves at the forefront.

Also in 2020 the producer Lorenzo Mieli had in turn expressed the will of make a short series with all the characters of Boris, to pay homage to the original show. However, there was no lack of difficulties between the inconveniences deriving from the pandemic emergency and the premature death of the author Mattia Torre. The first official confirmation of Boris' return was given by the actor Alberto Di Stasio, who plays production director Sergio Vannucci in the series: Di Stasio guest on a live broadcast on Twitch, said that preparations were underway to return to the set in the early summer months of 2021. 

Boris' first three seasons 

Boris: The Italian non-series, which aired for three seasons from 2007 to 2010, can be defined as a TV series within another TV series. In fact, the plot tells the behind-the-scenes de The Eyes of the Heart 2, a fiction that must be produced by the troupe of director Renè Ferretti. However, this is a mediocre project on which as many quite incapable workers in the sector work; and therefore there can be problems in completing something that essentially one is not able to do.

Paradoxically, this is Boris's strong point, because it lays bare a common reality of the entertainment world, revealing even the most gory and uncomfortable background of an environment of this type. A genuine and straightforward narrative, that made the Boris series a real cult of Italian television.

Boris: the movie 

Boris - The movie Boris - The movie The characters of the well-known Italian television series arrive on the big screen. This time struggling with the realization of a film. Open tab  

One year after the conclusion of the third season of Boris, on 1 April 2011 it is distributed in Italian cinemas Boris - The movie. A film produced by the same authors of the TV series and starring most of the cast members, which was initially supposed to be released on November 20, 2010. 

The plot sees one of the main protagonists, René Ferretti, again played by Francesco Pannofino, again involved in yet another project that will later turn out to be a rip-off. After deciding to retire from the scene due to the usual misunderstandings with Lopez, the delegate of the television network for which Ferretti works, is contacted and persuaded by his friend Sergio to take part in a best-seller of investigation, of which the latter has the rights. In doing so, René will cut ties with most of his old troupe, but in the end this elusive best seller will never see the light of a series of cheats made by Lopez himself; who to save shack and puppets will convert the film in question into a cinepanettone, which ironically will also be a great success. René embittered by the way things have turned out and also disappointed by the reactions of the public, will end up reuniting with his old crew and will return again to the job that he had abandoned.

In 2011 Boris - The film won a Nastro d'Argento and a Ciak d'oro thanks to the interpretation of Carolina Crescentini as best supporting actress, in the role of Corinna Negri.
