DaVinci's Demons - Season 3 Will Be Final Season

In news that probably won't shock anyone really, it has been confirmed after months of relative silence surrounding this series that the upcoming third season of fantasy historical drama, DaVinci's Demons will now serve as it's last.

The show which debuted in 2013 on Starz network and stars Tom Riley as the titular DaVinci had been a hit for the cable station but it was announced last week that Season 3 will mark the end for the show. The season will comprise of ten episodes and will be executive produced by The X-Files John Shiban, following the departure of creator David S. Goyer.

I have to admit that like with a lot of cancellations this year (Atlantis, Revenge, Hannibal) that I'm not actually that shocked by this news. The fact that Starz have yet to produce a series that goes beyond three seasons (excluding Spartacus) aside, I actually three seasons is a good place to end the series as well. It's been a fun show but unfortunately while it's likely that I will see the episodes when they air, due to circumstances, I may not be able to review them as such. I am though looking forward to this final season.

I was surprised, since this has consistently been one of their top dramas, with Outlander and Black Sails. I certainly hope they go beyond three seasons for Outlander. There are a lot more than three books.

Outlander definitely will go beyond three seasons. It's their biggest hit at the moment, even if UK viewers can only see it on Amazon. I keep meaning to write something about it. Must do before Season 2 airs.

And I just read that Black Sails was renewed for a fourth.

Fair play to Black Sails. It aired on Amazon in the UK and now it's on one of the digital channels as well.

Aparently Starz are streaming all of DaVinci's Demons third season like NBC did with Aquarius a few months back.
