Season One of 'Da Vinci's Demons' ended on a cliffhanger, with Lorenzo swearing to kill both Leonardo Da Vinci and Lucrezia (who ended up being a lover to both men), though he was on the verge of death with a slit throat. This season promises to show Leonardo heading to find the Book of Leaves, and discover what's going with his mother, but there's a lot that needs to happen before he can make that quest.
Da Vinci's Demons
Playing Leonardo Da Vinci is both easier and harder than it looks. There’s not a lot of on-screen representations, but the character is also one of the greatest artists and inventors of all time. Tom Riley is saddled with that role in David Goyer’s ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ and he nails the part, but for the second season he gets to take the character that much deeper. We got a chance to talk about the show and about the difference between working on stage and on the small screen, and binge watching in our chat.
David Goyer is a busy man. He’s currently one of the masterminds behind all of Warner Brothers’s DC-centric movies like ‘Man of Steel,' ‘Batman vs. Superman,’ ‘Sandman,' and even the television version of ‘Constantine,' but one of his passion projects is the Starz series ‘Da Vinci’s Demons.’ As the show is about to kick off season 2 on Saturday, March 22, we sat down with Goyer to dive into the next cycle, which is that much bigger than the first season, as it (at least eventually) takes Da Vinci to Mayan ruins, which may lead to his downfall.
For as much as we still miss the days of 'Spartacus,' the many goodies to emerge from the ongoing New York Comic-Con have seen Starz giving rise to two new trailers; not only do we have our best look yet at Michael Bay pirate drama 'Black Sails,' but also a new full-length trailer for 'Da Vinci's Demons' season 2!
With an eight episode order, 'Da Vinci's Demons' plays more like a miniseries, because just as we were settling into the rhythms of the first season it's now over. But after last week's episode, we also know that anything could happen by the end of tonight's finale (even though the show has been picked up for season 2).
Starz's 'Da Vinci's Demons' returns from its Memorial Day marathon tonight with the all-new episode, "The Hierophant." In this penultimate installment, Da Vinci takes unconventional measures to infiltrate the Vatican while Giuliano Medici comes one step closer to uncovering Rome's spy. And we've got an exclusive clip of the sexy morning after between Guiliano and "Lady" Vanessa from tonight's episode!
Starz's 'Da Vinci's Demons' has delivered the action and sex we'd expect from this sort of cable show, but as we move into the back half of the first season, we're hoping tonight's episode "The Tower" starts to put the pieces in place for the finale. Will Leonard Da Vinci go to the new world? Will Lucrezia get caught as the spy? We shall see.
