Domina season 2 start date confirmed as Livia Drusilla faces terrible choice

Domina Series 2 official trailer

Sky has confirmed the second series of the epic historical drama, Domina, will return to screens on September 13.

Domina follows the rise of Gaius Octavius (played by Matthew McNulty), who became the first Emperor of Rome as Caesar Augustus, and his third wife, Livia Drusilla (Kasia Smutniak).

After the first season saw Livia cement herself as the wife of the Emperor, the second sees her try to hold onto her position.

Set in 19 BC, Gaius and Livia return to Rome after three years away in the Eastern Province and are shocked to find their city in revolt, and Livia’s children in open rebellion. 

Throughout the season, Livia will be made to fight harder than ever to fulfil the sacred vow she swore to her father – to restore the Republic, and Democracy, to Rome.  

Don’t miss… Where was Domina filmed? Where is Domina set?

Livia will need all of her intelligence, ambition and guile to navigate these increasingly rough political seas.

She will face a terrible final choice between power and vengeance.

In the trailer for the tense second series, Livia can be heard warning: “You do not turn on your family,” as she tries to restore peace.

Elsewhere in the 30-second teaser, she is told: “You’re going to have to burn the whole house down and undo everything he has done.”

The tagline certainly seems to suggest Livia will take control from her husband as it reads: “In a man’s world. One person rule. A woman.”
