The final season of Da Vinci’s Demons (Starz, Saturdays, 8/7C) opens with a bang as Da Vinci uses one of his new weapons to destroy the vanguard of a Turkish fleet that is attempting to take the city of Otrano. Then things go horribly wrong.
The swashbuckling fun of Da Vinci’s Demons appears to be gone – but the drama remains.
When Starz’s oddly charming, ridiculously entertaining series Da Vinci’s Demons returns for its second season on Saturday, March 22nd (9/8C), things get even more chaotic than they’ve been so far. There are new threats from Rome and a deadly competitor in the race to find the Book of Leaves – possibly a new enemy even worse than Pope Sixtus.

Starz’s sophomore season of Da Vinci’s Demons – a historical fantasy that brings a healthy dose of fun into the mix – will premiere on Friday, March 22nd. The ten-episode series will launch internationally – in 125 countries – on FOX International Channels.

Leonardo Da Vinci was the man who caused the phrase ‘Renaissance Man’ to enter the lexicon. He was a painter, sculptor, mathematician, and inventor – and one of the best in history in every category. It’s a wonder that no one had ever seized upon his genius as the basis of a TV series, but until David S. Goyer (The Batman Trilogy, Man of Steel) came up with Da Vinci’s Demons (Starz, Fridays, 10/9C) no one had even tried. Their loss is out gain.
Starz Entertainment’s new eight-episode action-adventure series Da Vinci’s Demons is set to premiere on Friday April 12th at 10/9C, following the series finale of Spartacus: War of the Damned. Succeeding episodes will be run in the 9/8C slot.
The series, which follows the exploits of the young Leonardo Da Vinci comes from David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Trilogy) and – and trust me, I’ve seen the first three episodes – may be considerably less violent than Spartacus but is even more fun. For the official series description, check out the equally official press release following the jump.
