I know a second series has been commissioned. What can you tell me about that?
When we first tackled this, we weren’t really sure where to begin the saga of the Medici. For a time we decided to begin with Lorenzo the Magnificent because in many ways his life represents the pinnacle of Medici achievement: the High Renaissance, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Botticelli. But ultimately [we] decided to begin Season 1 with Giovanni and his son Cosimo. Now we are going to jump forward in time about 20 years for Season 2 to tell the story of Lorenzo the Magnificent, and we’re actually anticipating that that will take two seasons.
So you are saying it’s very likely that there is going to be a third season, though it has not been green-lit yet?
That’s right. I think Season 1 will have an ending and feel like a complete eight-hour journey. But it will not get to the end of Lorenzo’s life; there’s still a lot more that we could explore in Season 3.
