And in support of the upcoming season premiere, Starz has put out this video showcasing the new players in the complicated world of Da Vinci’s Demons.
The network’s also released these official new character descriptions:
IMA – The Inca High Priestess is as strikingly beautiful as she is formidable. Ima has an influence
over her people that even the emperor, Topa Inca, doesn’t possess.
DUKE ALFONSO – As son of Ferrante and future king of Naples, Alfonso never loses sight of the power within his grasp. However, his own ambitions could be his biggest downfall if he impudently gets in the way of his overbearing father.
AMERIGO VESPUCCI – A purveyor of curios, Amerigo does a lucrative business in securing exotica for the wealthy. His connections prove valuable to da Vinci and his friends, but he’s always looking for a way to profit, sometimes at their expense.
KING FERRANTE – Feared leader of one of the most powerful nations in Italy, King Ferrante’s known to proudly display the mummified corpses of his enemies. But an unlikely alliance proves to be a far more valuable addition to his collection.
