Starz today released new key art from the upcoming second season of their historical fantasy series “Da Vincis Demons,” created by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight trilogy). The new art is available below in both video and still versions along with a new sneak peak video featurette that offers interviews from Goyer and returning cast members Tom Riley, Laura Haddock, Elliot Cowan, Lara Pulver, Blake Ritson and Gregg Chillin. New cast members Carolina Guerra (who plays Ima, the seductive Inca High Priestess) and Kieran Bew (portrays Duke Alfonso, the son of Ferrante and Future King of Naples) are also introduced.
The image showcases a freefalling Leonardo da Vinci (Riley), as he endeavors to reach new heights like the legend of Icarus. The story of Icarus is a metaphor for da Vincis journey in season two of “Da Vinci’s Demons,” as he continues to put himself and those he loves in danger in his unending quest for truth and knowledge.
In the second season, Florence is thrown into chaos in the wake of the Pazzi conspiracy and Leonardo da Vinci must push the limits of his mind and body to defend the city against the forces of Rome. When the dust settles, friends are buried and rivalries enflamed. While the Medicis go to unthinkable lengths to deal with new threats, da Vinci continues on his quest to find the fabled Book of Leaves and uncover the secret history of his mother. He’ll come to realize that he has lethal competition in his quest — new enemies who may be even worse than the forces of Pope Sixtus. His search will take him to faraway lands and force him to reevaluate everything he knew about the world and his own history.
“Da Vincis Demons” season two will premiere with a ten-episode season on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Starz.
