Starz today released the official image of the key art, accompanied with a live action video version, for the anticipated second season of the historical fantasy Da Vinci's Demons, an original series created by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight trilogy).
The key art showcases a freefalling Leonardo da Vinci (played by Tom Riley), as he endeavors to reach new heights like the legend of Icarus. The story of Icarus is a metaphor for da Vinci's journey in Season 2 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.
The network also released a "New Season" sneak peak video featurette with interviews from series creator/executive producer, David S. 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.
About Da Vinci's Demons Season 2
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 Vinci's Demons Season 2 will premiere with a ten-episode season on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Starz.
