STARZ wants to prepare its viewers for “Da Vinci’s Demons” season two premiere. STARZ will present a special season one marathon of the entire first season airing two episodes back-to-back each night beginning Monday, March 17 – Thursday, March 20th, 2014 at 7pm ET/PT on STARZ. The series created by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight trilogy) follows the ‘untold’ story of the world’s greatest genius, Leonardo da Vinci, during his turbulent youth during the Renaissance.
The season one catch up marathon will lead into the highly anticipated season two premiere of “Da Vinci’s Demons,” returning on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on STARZ. Season one marathons will also be broadcast on STARZ IN BLACK, STARZ EDGE and ENCORE (STARZ’ sister network) prior to the new season premiere.
In a world where thought and faith are controlled, one man fights to set knowledge free. The secret history of Leonardo da Vinci’s tantalizing life reveals a portrait of a young man tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He is a heretic and skeptic intent on exposing the lies of religion. An insurgent seeking to subvert an elitist society. A bastard son who yearns for legitimacy with his father. He finds himself in the midst of a storm that has been brewing for centuries. A conflict between truth and lies, religion and science, past and future. His aspirations to improve his position in life bring him into contact with the two opposing forces of the time—the Vatican and the Medici family who both try and lure him onto their side. Leonardo must take up the fight against foes who use history to suppress the truth. A hero armed only with his genius, da Vinci stands alone against the darkness within, and the darkness without. Facing an uncertain future, his quest for knowledge nearly becomes his undoing as he explores the fringes of his own sanity. Da Vinci uses his unparalleled genius as a weapon against his enemies and emerges as an unstoppable force that lifts an entire era out of darkness and propels it into light.
