SANDITON'S ROSE WILLIAMS AND REIGN'S TOBY REGBO JOIN MEDICI: POWER AND BEAUTY EPIC SERIES SEASON 3! PLUS FIRST PHOTOS FROM THE SETS

      'MEDICI: POWER AND BEAUTY'
SEASON 3 EXCLUSIVE UPDATES
The new season will air on RAI this Autumn
Medici: The Magnificent was definitely a far cry from the marvellous first season Medici: Masters of Florence, having none of its great cast and masterful storytelling, as its lead star Daniel Sharman showed a rather shocking lack of acting chops, charisma and any kind of expression or even screen presence, but RAI's most successful international project is still getting the third season and we have first photos from the sets revealing not only a new longer hair look for Sharman's Lorenzo Medici, but also Sanditon's Rose Williams who is joining the season in the role of Caterina Sforza Riario, a historical figure known as the Renaissance lioness whose defiance and ruthlessness have made her a tyrant.

The story will be set after the terrible Pazzi Conspiracy in which Giuliano Medici (Bradley James) lost his life. Lorenzo is tormented by the desire for revenge against Pope Sixtus IV (Raoul Bova), who authorized that bloody attack, and towards Count Riario, the last survivor among the conspirators. His beloved wife Clarice (Synnove Karlsen) tries to convince him to find peace with a compromise that would save both his soul and the city. He does not see much hope even after the discovery that Giuliano left a son, Giulio, who is welcomed into the family. Lorenzo is determined to save his family and Florence even at

As the bank's situation becomes increasingly unstable, politics pushes Lorenzo to give up the ideals of the past and his relationship with his wife Clarice also suffers, especially after he meets beautiful lady Sforza. He also continues to finance the world of art, meeting

    1. The first season was really really good, the second one was bad, but you might like it as it had Sean Bean.

    1. A selfie, they haven't released any official materials yet, so I had to scourge the net for first glimpses of them in costumes.
