What’s This TV Show About?
A National Geographic anthology drama, each season of Genius presents the “untold” stories of the world’s most intelligent and inventive innovators. The second season, Genius: Picasso stars Alex Rich as young Pablo Picasso, with Antonio Banderas portraying him in his latter years. As one of the 20th century’s most acclaimed artists, Picasso plied his trade in exciting new ways. His chapter explores the links between the Spaniard’s passionate nature and powerful creative drive and his eventful personal life. The story delves into his marriages and affairs, as well as his political and personal alliances. Johnny Flynn, season one’s young Albert Einstein, will make a special appearance, while Samantha Colley, T.R. Knight, and Seth Gabel return for season two. Clémence Poésy, Robert Sheehan, Poppy Delevingne, and Aisling Franciosi also star.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of Genius averaged a 0.06 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 363,000 viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 62% and 65%, respectively. Find out how Genius stacks up against other Nat Geo TV shows.
Just like last year, fans don’t have to worry whether National Geographic will cancel or renew Genius for season three. The cable network announced Genius is renewed for a third season, a week prior to the season two premiere. The ratings are way down when compared to season one but this appears to be a prestige project for the channel. However, since even renewals can be cancelled, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Genius cancellation or renewal alerts.
