The Hollywood Reporter has shared an article following Starz recent announcement that they are cancelling Magic City, and discusses the Starz original programming going forward, including Da Vinci's Demons. Read it in full on the site.

...When Starz appeared here at the Television Critics Association press tour, CEO Chris Albrecht said: "For 2014, our goal is to air more than 50 hours of originals, and I think we're on track to do that." The trick for Albrecht and Starz is to get subscribers to watch those 50 hours and watch in such numbers that the series will last beyond two seasons. And even that sentence is a bit deceiving because both Boss and Magic City were renewed for a second season before they even premiered. The same thing happened for Michael Bay's pirate series Black Sails, which won't premiere until January but Albrecht made the second season pick-up at TCA. The channel recently renewed freshman series Da Vinci's Demons and seems to be well-stocked going forward...

...It's a little surprising that neither Boss, an excellent series which had a brilliant dramatic performance from Kelsey Grammer, nor Mitch Glazer's Magic City, which had a viewer-friendly Sopranos-Mad Men fusion to it, ever took off. Both of those series were big swings. Da Vinci's Demons is a lot lighter and more fun, so maybe that will be the direction going forward...

Da Vinci's Demons fans can help keep the show going. Pre-order / buy the DVD and Blu-ray, and watch season 2 when it airs, LEGALLY.
