Da Vinci’s Demons is coming to DVD for the last time. It’s been announced that the final season DVD and Blu-Ray of the cancelled Starz series will be released on January 26th.
The third and final season of Da Vinci’s Demons finished on December 26th.
The series, which centered on the early life of Leonardo Da Vinci, was cancelled by Starz this summer before the premiere of its third season. The last season scored pretty poorly in the ratings, with a season average of only .19 million viewers. Despite the low ratings, creator David S. Goyer mentioned that he’d like to continue the series down the line and pick it up 15 years after the close of season three.
In the meantime, there’re always the DVDs.
Here’s the press release:
Beverly Hills, CA; December 21, 2015 – Get ready for the explosive final chapter of one of the most ambitious and thrilling series of all time. Anchor Bay Entertainment releases the third season of the critically acclaimed STARZ Original series, DA VINCI’S DEMONS: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON, on Blu-ray and DVD on January 26th. From Creator and Executive Producer David S. Goyer (Blade, The Dark Knight, Man of Steel), comes the conclusion of the historical fantasy series that focuses on a young Leonardo da Vinci, as he struggles with his inner demons and outside forces in a battle to shape the future. This is a story of the first true “Renaissance man” in a provocative series that The Hollywood Reporter calls “endlessly fascinating.” SRP is $54.99 for the Blu-ray and $44.98 for the DVD.
DA VINCI’S DEMONS: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON shows Leonardo da Vinci’s world as it comes crashing down, when the city of Otranto is torn apart by an Ottoman invasion. On the battlefield, the Turks use da Vinci’s own weapons against him…the designs for which were stolen by someone he trusted. This betrayal will haunt Leo long after the battle is decided, as will the deaths of loved ones lost in the fighting. 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.
DA VINCI’S DEMONS: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON features BAFTA award-winner Tom Riley as tortured genius Leonardo da Vinci, and co-stars Laura Haddock, Blake Ritson, Elliot Cowan, Lara Pulver and James Faulkner as both Pope Sixtus IV and The Prisoner.
Here is the epic conclusion to the historical thrill ride that fans and critics have been waiting for.”
