It has already been ordered for months in Italy.
While season 1 will end in France tonight, on France 2, our Italian neighbors have been waiting for season 2 for almost a year. Leonardo, broadcast on Rai 1 in March 2021… The series with Aidan Turner was a big hit, as well as on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and the rest of the world. So of course, the sequel is on the way. A season 2 of Leonardo is already ordered.
“Leonardo works very well and there will be a second season that we are imagining”, said last year the president of Sony Pictures Television, Wayne Garvie, confirming in passing that the showrunner, Frank Spotnitz, will be back at the helm. “We’re going to put them back on the computer keyboard so they can come up with equally compelling scripts…”
Shortly after, producer Luca Bernabei revealed to Italian radio (RTL 102.5) that this second season, still worn by Turner, will be centered on “a secret Leonardo in Rome”.
We will thus see DeVinci in competition with other giants of the time such as Raphael and Michelangelo.
For the time being, the new episodes have not yet been filmed. So season 2 of Leonardo should take some time yet.
