NEW YORK, NY - December 5, 2022 - Premium linear channel and streaming service MGM+ today announced new casting for the second season of its epic, sweeping historical drama series, Domina. Taking place during one of the most provocative periods in Roman history, the series follows the extraordinary rise of Gaius/Emperor Augustus Caesar's third wife, Livia Drusilla, played by Kasia Smutniak (Perfetti Sconosciuti, Loro, Devils).

Domina is produced by Tiger Aspect - part of Banijay UK - in association with MGM+ Studios, following an agreement with leading global distributor Banijay Rights. Domina recently finished production at the historic Cinecittà Studios in Rome and is scheduled to premiere on MGM+ in 2023, with the second season also returning to Sky across Europe in 2023.

Domina Season Two chronicles the struggle for control of the Roman Empire, and of Rome's Imperial Family, from a rare female perspective. In its first season, Livia Drusilla, the golden girl of the prominent Claudii family, returned to Rome after 10 years in exile, determined to regain everything that was stolen from her. Now, atop a fractious empire and a dysfunctional dynasty, she must fight to preserve her marriage to Gaius and find a way to seat one of her sons on the throne, as new and old rivals jockey for position in a world where it's impossible to know who to trust.

The series is created by Simon Burke (Fortitude, Strike Back), with Burke, head of Tiger Aspect Drama Lucy Bedford, Muirinn Lane Kelly, and Carmel Maloney as executive producers. MGM+ has the U.S. rights, with the second season returning to Sky across Europe in 2023. Banijay Rights is the worldwide distributor.

He's increasingly reluctant to fulfil his mother's ambition for him and his brother with the mission to restore the Republic. Although he finds some love and light with new wife, Vipsania (Joelle), the corruption of Rome overwhelms him, and he risks the destruction of his family.
