It has been a while since we really have seen much said or spoken about “Da Vinci’s Demons,” and there is a fairly simple reason for that in the end: The show has not even aired an episode in over a year. Part of the reason for that is that Starz has suddenly gone into somewhat of a creative Renaissance, with “Outlander” and “Power” each becoming big hits for them.
With that, though, it means that the story of Da Vinci on the network is coming to a close. As show creator David S. Goyer told Entertainment Weekly, the upcoming season (which is now set to premiere on the network October 24) is going to be the last for the show:
“While ending Leonardo’s journey is bittersweet for me, I’m happy we’re ending the story on a high note … I hope everyone enjoys these final episodes as much as we enjoyed making them.”
At this point, Starz ultimately does have some other shows now that it can lean on, and there is more coming down the pipeline. One of the most-anticipated shows that they have coming up is the adaptation “American Gods,” which is being done by Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal”) and also has the involvement of original author Neil Gaiman. It is sad to see this show go especially for some of its long-term fans, but one of the things that it should be proud of is that it at least had a good stretch of time in order to tell its story. Three seasons is nothing to sneeze at.
We’ll have some other news as the premiere date nears. Stay tuned.
