What’s This TV Show About?
A SundanceTV medieval detective drama based on the 1980 Umberto Eco novel, The Name of the Rose stars John Turturro, Damian Hardung, Rupert Everett, Greta Scarano, Fabrizio Bentivoglio, and Michael Emerson. The series unfolds in northern Italy in 1327 and centers on brilliant English Franciscan friar William of Baskerville (Turturro) and Adso of Melk (Hardung), a young novice. When the duo travels to a remote abbey for a summit, they wind up investigating the death of two monks at great risk to themselves.
Season One Ratings
Will SundanceTV cancel or renew The Name of the Rose for season two? SundanceTV has billed it as a mini-series. If they mean that in the old-fashioned sense (rather than the new “limited series” which has more to do with episode count), there shouldn’t be a second season. The series in an Italian-German production though, so the decision to continue the series or end it here will primarily be made overseas. I’ll update this page as the season progresses.
