DaVinci's Demons - Season 2 Airdate/Spoilers/New Trailer

DaVinci (to Riario): I never believed that I would be facing an end at all.

DaVinci's Demons may have been a show that divided viewers more than it wowed them in it's first season (despite advertisers being more than keen to remind us that it came from David S. Goyer, who was involved in The Dark Knight trilogy) but the first trailer for it's upcoming second season back in October was tantalising enough. The trailer now released following the cast's recent attendance at the Television Critics Association 2014 however does show some further signs that perhaps it's second season might be worth a gander.

For a start, not only are we having the Same Genius in a New World (this season's slogan), but throughout the ten episode second season, it seems that both DaVinci (Tom Riley) and Count Riario (Blake Ritson) are going to be forced into working together as well, while audience members will finally figure what exactly makes Lucrezia (Laura Haddock) tick as a character too as she will become the glue of the season. Goyer also has mentioned that the show has found it's tone now and that the second year will be darker compared to it's first one but that it's always been a historical fantasy series. However, the trailer had an odd sense of finality to it and the move to a different day does make me wonder about the show's immediate future.

I didn't catch the finality to the trailer at all. Just a new story arch. The scene where Leonardo and Riario are talking about the end is actually from the very first episode of s2. Besides, Goyer has said he has planned to do 5-6 seasons of the show. And the show's got good ratings and not bad views either, so I don't think they're going to quit after the second season. At least I hope they won't!

It seemed pretty final to me and the ratings were dropping after the first episode.

I like the show but there were certain things (DaVinci's sexuality) the show mishandled and it blew up in it's face with certain media outlets.

If Goyer's lucky, the show will get a third season but five or six, I don't see happening.

I do plan to watch/review the second season though.
