Da Vinci's Demons: season 3 broadcast details for FX Turkey & Starz

FX Turkey shared their Da Vinci's Demons season 3 trailer on You Tube, which indicates that they will be broadcasting Da Vinci's Demons 24 hours after Starz - which would make it October 25th. There are reports online of FOX Russia also airing on 25th October, but that hasn't been confirmed on their website. No other dates have been revealed yet.

The full press release from the TCAs last week has been shared on here, with more details about the Starz broadcast of the final season of Da Vinci's Demons. While the entire season will be available to watch on October 24th, Starz will continue to show weekly episodes, without a break on Saturday nights, with the final episode airing on December 26th. This doesn't really help any fans online around the world, who will sadly not be able to avoid massive spoilers. Such a shame the show doesn't get to build up to the final episode as fans want. Also, there appears to be an error about the broadcast time, as the premiere is going out at 8pm not 9pm as reported in the press release.

Da Vinci's Demons: why the show was cancelled

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht spoke to Deadline about the reasons behind his decision not to commission any more seasons of Da Vinci's Demons, and how season 3 will end. This comes after the announcement that Starz will release season 3 in its entirety via On Demand and Starz Play from October 24th.

This certainly feels for fans like the show has been dumped horribly quickly (#TheQuestEndsTooQuickly), for the final season, which is incredibly sad, though it's probable that Starz is testing the waters for the Netflix model of broadcast, and is using a show no longer wanted for the experiment. Fans outside the US will still have the weekly anticipation on the various FOX channels, though will have a terrible job avoiding spoilers online! Chris Albrecht confirmed that the decision to cancel was not made until season 3 filming was complete, so the extra shooting in March was not altering the ending to anticipate cancellation, as some fans keep reporting.

Starz recently announced that the upcoming third season of Da Vinci’s Demons will be the period drama’s last. The series, which has been off the air for almost year and a half, has been a respectable performer, so the decision to end it before seeing how Season 3 does was somewhat of a surprise.

Da Vinci's Demons: 10 episodes of season 3 to be released on demand!

Deadline has shared the news that Starz will release all 10 episodes of Da Vinci's Demons season 3 on October 24th. They will be available to view on demand and via Starz Play from that date. 

The model of releasing entire seasons simultaneously is continuing to gain popularity. Starz has become the latest network to employ it for the third and final season of Da Vinci’s Demons and ballet-themed limited series Flesh And Bone. They will be available for Starz subscribers on Starz Play and Starz On Demand in the U.S. in conjunction with the premieres of their first episodes, October 24 and November 8, respectively. The announcement was made at TCA .

Everyone now needs to clear diaries for the weekend of October the 24th, to binge watch the entire final season! 

Da Vinci's Demons: season 2 UK DVD & Blu-ray date slipped again...

This is so depressing, I was tempted not to post about it. Not entirely unexpected after the October 24th broadcast announcement for Da Vinci's Demons season 3 by Starz, the UK release for the season 2 DVD and Blu-ray will now be 16th November 2015. Or maybe 2020. They really are not remotely interested in UK fans. How can they possibly think releasing the DVD 18 months after the show finished broadcast makes good sense? And this is the 3rd date change this year for the release. 

My recommendation is to buy the German or French DVDs which do have English audio, if you need region 2. If you have a multi region DVD player (and you should consider it, they are quite cheap), buy the Australian region 4 DVD or the US region 1 - which has extras. Amazon is VERY easy order from for any country. 

My main reason for sharing this bad news, is that we have a hint of when FOX TV UK may broadcast Da Vinci's Demons season 3. Unfortunately it looks like it may be 3 weeks or more AFTER the Starz broadcast, assuming the DVD release is close to the season 3 broadcast. But until they announce, nothing is certain. Da Vinci's Demons season 2 began broadcast before the season 1 DVD was released in UK. I told you none of it makes sense.
