Bradley James and Daniel Sharman have joined Netflix’s upcoming Italian period drama series MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE season 2.

Sharman will lead as a young Lorenzo the Magnificent in 15th century Florence with James as his brother Giuliano.

Production is set to begin on August 24 in Rome on the eight-episode season. The duo are joined alongside Julian Sands as Lorenzo and Giuliano’s father, Piero and Sebastian De Souza as their friend, Sandro Botticelli.


Season 2 is set 20 years after the events of the first one. A young Lorenzo, the nephew of Richard Madden’s Cosimo from the first season, is forced to take over the family bank, which has been mismanaged by his father.

As Lorenzo, his brother, and Botticelli set about trying to make Florence a great financial and cultural center, they face off against the Pazzi family, and Pope Sixtus IV, played by Raul Bova.

Sean Bean will play the Medici’s family nemesis Jacopo Pazzi. Lorenzo’s mother is played by Sarah Paris and his mistress by Alessandra Mastronardi.

Italy’s Lux Vide, public broadcaster Rai’s drama unit, and Frank Spotnitz’s Big Light produces. Spotnitz created the series with Nicholas Meyer. Jon Cassar will direct.
