Starz also announced that John Shiban is joining the series behind-the-scenes as the third season showrunner and as executive producer. Series creator David S. Goyer will continue on as an executive producer.
“We’re excited to continue Leonardo da Vinci’s adventures with a third season of Da Vinci’s Demons with John Shiban joining the ranks as executive producer and showrunner,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz. “David S. Goyer’s vision of da Vinci’s journey continues to entertain fans, taking them deeper into the world of Da Vinci’s Demons where there is still much more story to tell.”
“I’m very proud of this modern take on the endlessly fascinating Leonardo da Vinci — everyone from the writers, directors, cast and all the crew have been invaluable and will continue to be for what we have ahead,” says Goyer. “I’ve been a fan of John’s work for some time and I’m excited to add his voice to the mix.”
“I’m thrilled to be joining the amazing creative team behind Da Vinci’s Demons,” said Shiban. “Starz and Adjacent have given us an amazing playground to play in – I can’t wait to dig further into the untold history of Leonardo da Vinci.”

Brilliant and passionate, the 25-year- old Leonardo da Vinci is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. As a free thinker, with intellect and talents that are almost superhuman, he struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time.
