The Devils TV series is produced internationally, and The CW licenses the rights to air it in the United States. The decision to cancel or renew the show for a third season likely doesn’t rest solely on the network’s shoulders and is dependent on a lot of economic factors. If Devils is renewed, will the network want to air season three? Stay tuned.
An international thriller series, the Devils TV show is based on a novel by Guido Maria Brera. It stars Alessandro Borghi, Patrick Dempsey, Malachi Kirby, Paul Chowdhry, Pia Mechler, Li Jun Li, Joel de la Feunte, Lars Mikkelsen, and Clara Rosager. The story follows appointed CEO of the New York-London Investment Bank, Massimo Ruggeo (Borghi) and Dominic Morgan (Dempsey), one of the most influential figures in the world of international finance. In season two, it’s 2016 — four years since the events that saw Ruggero’s lover Sofia Flores killed and Morgan fired from the New York London Bank. In the time that has passed, Massimo has become CEO of NYL, which is now part owned by the Chinese as part of a Chinamerica initiative. Although he is flying high in his career, Massimo has nothing in his life outside of work and this has created a distance between him and the other “Pirates” – Oliver Harris (Kirby), Kalim Chowdhrey (Chowdhry) and Eleanor Bourg (Mechler).
