Medici’s third instalment resumes after the Pazzi Conspiracy, the event that wrought havoc within the Medici family.

Giuliano de’ Medici (Bradley James) has been brutally murdered, and Lorenzo (Stuart Martin) is seeking revenge against Riario and Pope Sisto IV, who is still doing his best to destroy the Medici.

To make things harder, Lorenzo also has to face the growing discontent of Florence’s citizens, who find their inspiration in the religious leader Girolamo Savonarola.

This preaching friar is a real character from history who took power in Florence in 1494, proclaiming a ‘popular’ republic that was in opposition to the tyrannies of the rich.

In English and Italian with English subtitles. Seasons 1&2 are currently available on SBS On Demand.

Medici: The Magnificent Part II (Season Three) Thursday, 7 January 2021 at SBS On Demand (all eight episodes available to stream)
