Starz has decided not to order a fourth season of their Da Vinci’s Demons TV show. The third season, which starts airing on Saturday, October 24th, will be the end.
Via a statement, Starz Managing Director Carmi Zlotnik said, “The steadfast fans of Da Vinci’s Demons have been asking about the next installment of this story and we’re excited to roll it out. David Goyer brought us a plan to portray the unknown early years of a genius and we think the fans will enjoy this final chapter which segues into the da Vinci that history knows.”
Series creator and executive producer David S. Goyer noted, “While ending Leonardo’s journey is bittersweet for me, I’m happy we’re ending the story on a high note. Leonardo was famous for his mirror-writing, and there’s a symmetry to the entire series — between the first episode and the final one — that I think the maestro would have appreciated. I want to thank our dedicated fans around the world for viewing and engaging with such passion. I want to thank Starz for joining me on this crazy romp. And I want to thank Tom Riley for turning in a consistently brilliant performance. It’s no small feat to portray a genius, but Tom did it with grace and humor. I hope everyone enjoys these final episodes as much as we enjoyed making them.”
