Premieres Saturday, October 24 at 8 PM ET/PT on Starz
The third season of the historical fantasy series will serve as the epic conclusion, which follows the ‘untold’ quest of the world's greatest genius, Leonardo da Vinci during his turbulent early days in Renaissance Florence.
Leonardo da Vinci, genius, artist, a man adept at solving the world’s mysteries, faces his toughest challenge yet in the final season of “Da Vinci’s Demons” as he witnesses his personal inventions employed by Ottoman invaders during the battle of Otranto. To fight those who seek to destroy everything he loves, Leo must align with old foes, repair broken friendships, discover hidden secrets, and resume a dangerous quest, all while knowing that he is his own worst enemy.
Leonardo's world came crashing down when the city of Otranto was torn apart by an Ottoman invasion. On the battlefield, the Turks used da Vinci’s own weapons against him… the designs for which were stolen by someone he trusted. This betrayal will haunt Leo long after the battle is decided, as will the deaths of loved ones lost in the fighting. When Rome instigates a Crusade against the Turks, Leonaro seizes the opportunity to join, but his mission is complicated by a series of grisly murders that terrorize Italy and threaten the Crusade itself.
Tom Riley (“Monroe,” “Doctor Who,” I Want Candy) stars as the title character. Riley’s co-stars include Laura Haddock (The Inbetweeners Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy) who plays Lucrezia Donati; Blake Ritson (Serena, “Upstairs Downstairs”) who plays Count Girolamo Riario; and Elliot Cowan (“Luther,” “Lost in Austen”) who plays the de factor ruler of Florence, Lorenzo Medici.
