Medici season 4 Netflix release date: Will there be another series?
Netflix recently dropped Medici: The Magnificent: Part two, which was essentially the third season of the Italian-English drama. The show picked up from the second outing and finished up the story of the great family. Express.co.uk looks at why the show is coming to a close.
Will there be another series of Medici?
Sadly, Medici: The Magnificent: Part two was the last outing of the historical drama and brings the story of the powerful Italian family to a close.
There doesn’t appear to be a reason as to why the show is finishing, but it could simply be because the story has concluded.
The third series rounded off the story of the titular Lorenzo the Magnificent (played by Daniel Sharman) as he sought to secure his family’s future.
Season three picked up from the events of the last cycle and the Pazzi conspiracy which saw an assassination plot on the Medici family.

The third run covered a period of about 15 or 16 years in the lives of the Medici as they tried to battle their enemies.
Picking up a couple of years after the death Giuliano Medici (Bradley James), the final series focused on the family as a whole and how the tragedy affects them going forward.
Medici was broadcast on Italian channel Rai 1 in its home nation back in December 2019 before arriving on Netflix on May 1, 2020.
The final outing saw Reign and The Last Kingdom’s Toby Regbo join the cast as Tommaso Peruzzi.
Reflecting on the series coming to a close, actress Sarah Parish – who is better known as Lorenzo’s mother Lucrezia Tornabuoni – said in a recent interview: “With these really big epic series it’s a very tricky thing to write because there’s so much to fit into a very small space of time.
“As a writer the challenge is to not be too expositional all the time.
“I think Frank [Spotnitz] the writer does that well, he doesn’t lose the emotion of the piece.”
She added to BT.com: “I think we’ve achieved a great ending to a fascinating story.”
Parish said the show’s success was due audiences loving a “dynasty drama” focusing on a warring family.
While Sharman explained: “I think what I love about it is that it has everything.
“I read a lot of stuff about the Medici and the family and I just couldn’t believe it was all true and really happened.
“It’s got violence and sex and art and it’s very easy to get lost in that world.

“People want to immerse themselves in worlds and what’s incredible about this series is that it’s all shot in the places where these events actually unfolded. There’s something beautifully immersive about watching that.”
Medici first aired on Rai 1 in 2016 and was then released in one go on Netflix.
A second season got the green light and followed in 2018.
During its three seasons, Medici has featured a stellar cast to rival the likes of Game of Thrones including appearances from Sean Bean, Richard Madden and Dustin Hoffman.
The show was shot on location in Italy with some of the places across Tuscany, the city of Mantua in Lombardy and villages such as Pienza, Montepulciano and Volterra.
