The third and final season of the historical fantasy series Da Vinci’s Demons will premiere Sunday 13 December at 7.30pm on FX and 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.
Facing an uncertain future, Leonardo’s quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing as he witnesses his personal inventions being used against him. 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.
Penned by David S. Goyer (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Constantine, The Dark Knight trilogy) and starring Tom Riley (Monroe, Doctor Who, I Want Candy) as the title character, the definitive third chapter continues where Leonardo’s world comes to a downward spiral when the city of Otranto is torn apart by an Ottoman invasion. On the battlefield, the Turks will use da Vinci’s own weapons against him, the designs for which were stolen by someone he trusted. When Rome instigates a Crusade against the Turks, he seizes the opportunity to join, but his mission is complicated by a series of grisly murders that terrorize Italy and threaten the Crusade itself.
Riley’s co-stars include Laura Haddock (The Inbetweeners Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy) who plays Lucrezia Donati; Blake Ritson (Serena, Upstairs Downstairs) as Count Girolamo Riario; and Elliot Cowan (Luther, Lost in Austen) who plays the de factor ruler of Florence, Lorenzo Medici.
