Its US premiere drew 2.14 million viewers over the weekend, retaining more than 70 percent of Spartacus‘ series finale.
“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,” said Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. “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.”
“I’m excited that we get to continue the adventures of the world’s most eccentric and glorious polymath. Long live Leonardo and thanks to Starz for helping to make it happen,” added Goyer.
Production on season two is expected to begin in Wales in May, and will return in 2014.
