Fans of Starz’ ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ won’t be happy to hear that the third season of the series which airs this October will also be the final season. John Shiban (‘The X-Files’,’Supernatural’) just took over from creator David Goyer as the series showrunner and will hopefully be giving the show the end cap that it deserves. Starz released the details with Goyer earlier today without saying the exact reason it is being pulled off the air.
One can only hope that it is from the full story being told in this three season run and not from a ratings issue.
According to Starz managing director Carmi Zlotnik:
“The steadfast fans of Da Vinci’s Demons have been asking about the next installment of this story and we’re excited to roll it out. David Goyer brought us a plan to portray the unknown early years of a genius and we think the fans will enjoy this final chapter which segues into the da Vinci that history knows. John Shiban has done a tremendous job of building on past seasons and by showing how da Vinci matures as his challenges grow.”
While fellow fans will probably be happy to hear that we are going to be getting closure at the end it is a shame that this upcoming season will be its last. How will it end though? According to Goyer:
“While ending Leonardo’s journey is bittersweet for me, I’m happy we’re ending the story on a high note. Leonardo was famous for his mirror-writing, and there’s a symmetry to the entire series — between the first episode and the final one — that I think the maestro would have appreciated. I want to thank our dedicated fans around the world for viewing and engaging with such passion I want to thank Starz for joining me on this crazy romp. And I want to thank [star] Tom Riley for turning in a consistently brilliant performance. It’s no small feat to portray a genius, but Tom did it with grace and humor. I hope everyone enjoys these final episodes as much as we enjoyed making them.”
It sounds as if we’re not only going to get a happy ending but one that fits with the style that Da Vinci is known for. I absolutely like the sound of that and can’t wait to see how they pull it off.
