EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS — 'Da Vinci's Demons' finale and #DaVinciThon event details

The Da Vinci’s Demons season 2 finale airs Saturday, May 31, and we have a sneak peek at it in these exclusive photos provided by Starz. In them, actor Tom Riley appears as youthful and impetuous genius Leonardo da Vinci, whose story in the show defies the historical record, but makes for entertaining television. Creator David S. Goyer has filled in the blanks of some lost years with additional daring adventures and fantastic deeds, surrounded by great beauty in rich Renaissance-styled sets and costumes.

In the finale, “The Sins of Daedalus,” Leonardo and his Italian compatriots face an Ottoman invasion by sea. As a war engineer, the artist and inventor will no doubt play a pivotal role in formulating strategy along with Lorenzo Medici (Elliot Cowen), the king of Naples (Kieran Bew) and his own father, Piero de Vinci (David Schofield), a trusted Medici adviser.

Earlier this month, Starz announced it had renewed the show for a third season, which starts filming in Swansea in the U.K. in June and will likely have a seven-month shooting schedule, according to Riley. Goyer steps down as showrunner for the coming season and turns over those responsibilities to Emmy-winning TV veteran John Shiban, a writer and producer on shows like Fox’s The X Files and AMC’s Breaking Bad and Hell on Wheels. Goyer will continue as executive producer.
