‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ Season 2: Starz Renews After One Episode

Da Vincis Demons Season 2 Starz Renews

We knew Leonardo Da Vinci to be brilliant, but talk about speedy! This past Friday saw Starz highest-rated debut to date with the David S. Goyer-penned ‘Da Vinci’s Demons,’ and the edgy cable network has wasted no time in locking down the re-invented inventor for another season. ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ season 2 will officially bow in 2014, but will anything prove different from the first time around?

Just days after its series premiere, and ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ already has its future mapped out. Via press release, we’ve learned that Starz has officially opted to order a second season of the Tom Riley-starring adventure series, whose premiere episode “The Hanged Man” drew an impressive 2.14 million viewers on the heels of ‘Spartacus: War of the Damned‘ finale “Victory.”

Executive produced by David S. Goyer (‘The Dark Knight,’ ‘Man of Steel‘) ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ tells the unheard tale of Da Vinci’s action-packed youth, as he “sets knowledge free, defies authority and throws himself into the future, forever changing the fate of mankind.” The series also stars ‘Sherlock‘s’ Lara Pulver and ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s’ Alexander Siddig, while ‘Downton Abbey’ staple Hugh Bonneville had a surprising cameo in the premiere.

“I’m excited that we get to continue the adventures of the world’s most eccentric and glorious polymath,” said Goyer in a statement. “Long live Leonardo and thanks to Starz for helping to make it happen.”
