Starz orders up more demons, DaVinci’s Demons extended to third season

Writer David S. Goyer’s reimagining of historical icon Leonardo DaVinci is getting a third season.

Goyer’s name should be instantly recognizable to any comics fan since he’s the man behind the Dark knight Batman movies and quite a few others. Bottom line, he knows what he’s doing and writing characters like DaVinci in Davinci’s Demons is second nature. Clearly, someone was paying attention as Starz Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht has indeed announced that the show will be continuing on to a third season of Renaissance adventure.

Joining the team already in place for that third season will be X-Files and Breaking Bad writer and producer John Shiban. Shiban will serve as executive producer on DaVinci, a role he’s familiar with from his run on X-Files. He also brings a jack-of-all-trades quality to the show since he’s not only produced and written, but also bee a showrunner and has even directed episodes of Braking Bad. That’s a nice little resume right there.

As for season three, well, everybody’s pretty excited for it.

“We’re excited to continue Leonardo da Vinci’s adventures with a third season of ’Da Vinci’s Demons’ with John Shiban joining the ranks as executive producer and showrunner,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz. “David S. Goyer’s vision of da Vinci’s journey continues to entertain fans, taking them deeper into the world of ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ where there is still much more story to tell.”

“I’m very proud of this modern take on the endlessly fascinating Leonardo da Vinci — everyone from the writers, directors, cast and all the crew have been invaluable and will continue to be for what we have ahead,” says Goyer. “I’ve been a fan of John’s work for some time and I’m excited to add his voice to the mix.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining the amazing creative team behind ‘Da Vinci’s Demons,’” said Shiban. “Starz and Adjacent have given us an amazing playground to play in – I can’t wait to dig further into the untold history of Leonardo da Vinci.”

You can catch season two, playing right now, on Starz (check your local listings) and look for season three to continue the adventures of the ultimate renaissance man some time next year.
