Starz Gives Second Season to ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’

Renewal comes days after series premiere

Starz has renewed new original drama “Da Vinci’s Demons” for a second season, following its record-setting premiere for the paybler.

Created by showrunner David S. Goyer and starring Tom Riley in the title role, “Demons” drew more than 2.1 million viewers over multiple airings of its Friday premiere, the top premiere weekend for a Starz original series.

Though the renewal came quickly, Starz actually took its time, relatively speaking. Original dramas “Boss” and “Magic City” each got second-season orders before they launched. Starz plans to air the second season of “Demons” in 2014.

“ ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ serves up action, adventure and history in a unique and highly entertaining way that only someone like David S. Goyer can,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said. “The first season premiered to strong audience engagement, and we are excited to bring the next chapter of Leonardo da Vinci’s adventures to audiences around the world.”

BBC Worldwide distributes “Demons” outside the U.S. and English-speaking Canada. Fox Intl. Channels acquired the first season and premiered it to audiences in 120 countries following its U.S. launch.
