DOMINA SEASON TWO
It has been a very long wait indeed, but Sky and MGM Plus are finally bringing us the second season of everybody's favourite Ancient Rome set series DOMINA which is returning this summer! This historical series takes place during one of the most provocative periods in Roman history following the extraordinary rise of Gaius Augustus Caesar’s (Matthew McNulty) third wife, Livia Drusilla (Kasia Smutniak). We also have an exciting first trailer for the long awaited series and you can check it out below. The first season was MGM's best watched debut series of the year when it aired for the first time and the second season will also consist of eight brand new episodes.
DOMINA SEASON TWO
chronicles the struggle for control of the Roman Empire, and of Rome’s imperial family, from a rare female perspective. In its first season, Livia Drusilla, the golden girl of the prominent Claudii family, returned to Rome after 10 years in exile, determined to regain everything that was stolen from her. Now, atop a fractious empire and a dysfunctional dynasty, she must fight to preserve her marriage to Gaius and find a way to seat one of her sons on the throne of the empire, as new and old rivals jockey for position in a world where it’s impossible to know who to trust.
WHO IS IN THE CAST?
David Avery will play ambitious young aristocrat Domitius, who joins Gaius’ family through marriage and proves himself to be a thorn in Livia’s side. Joelle will be Vipsania, who refuses to play the conventional power games expected of Roman aristocratic life. She is happily married to fellow outsider, Livia’s son Tiberius, and is a force for good in his life.
