Da Vinci’s Demons will see another season on its home channel of Starz, and today at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, that season two’s start date was officially set in stone. An exciting development for the David S. Goyer fantasy series — so much so that there's even a new trailer to boot; giving us another glance at the future history ahead of da Vinci and Florence.
With each new year comes a new set of TV shows to love or loathe. Between cable, network television and Netflix, which falls into its own budding small screen category, 2013 offered us some spectacular TV entertainment. Our favorite new TV shows of 2013 includes robots, clones, informants, politicians and more.
What becomes clear from the start of David S. Goyer's new historical fantasy series Da Vinci's Demons is that this show won't work if fans aren't completely drawn in by Tom Riley's performance as the legendary artist, inventor, painter and all around Renaissance Man. Fortunately for Da Vinci's Demons, and for Starz, the series succeeds in selling us on the character, presenting him as a man who manages to measure up to the hype of his legend...
If Da Vinci's Demons turns out to be half as good as it looks in its trailer, we're in for something dramatic, exciting, suspenseful and adventurous. David S. Goyer's new series is set to premiere in less than a month on Starz, following the conclusion of Spartacus: War of the Damned. With Spartacus in mind, Italy is certainly familiar territory for the pay cable channel, however Da Vinci's Demons takes place more than a millenium later, and north of Rome to beautiful Florence in the 1400s.
