It might have divided viewers upon it's debut on both Starz and FOXUK back in April of this year but DaVinci's Demons did manage to do enough to merit a second season and at the New York Comic Con last month, a trailer for the second season was released, along with some interesting cast pictures.
The trailer starts with the fallout of the attack on the Medici clan and DaVinci (Tom Riley) being chastised by Al Rahim (Alexander Siddig) for abandoning his destiny while hints of a force more ancient and dangerous than the Vatican are emerging. As the trailer progresses, it's made clear that both DaVinci and his crew, including Lucrezia (Laura Haddock) along with Riario (Blake Ritson) are destined to touch on the New World.
The season is set to introduce a few new characters, one of whom includes Incan princess, Ima (Carolina Guerra) and there are clips where it seems like her and DaVinci will connect. Other interesting clips include both Lucrezia and Zoroaster (Gregg Chillin) walking the plank, Riario hooking up with a mysterious woman, DaVinci sword fighting on a boat, a few grisly torture scenes, some sex scenes involving Clarice (Lara Pulver) and someone being hanged. The most interesting clip though comes around the end where it looks like our hero might be getting sacrificed as well as a comment on tempting fate. While I still kind of wish this show would make an effort to flesh out DaVinci's sexuality more, I do think the second season could be an improvement on the first one, which was a bit ropey in places. Here's hoping I'm right in that regard.
