What To Expect From Domina Season 2?
At the end of the first season, viewers saw Livia and Gaius holding authority over Rome. Meanwhile, the differences between because of the killing of Marcellus Gaius’s nephew were also solved and bear no malice. As a result, Octavia and Scribonia are not concerned about their reunion. The couple has made several enemies in their quest for power.

They have gained a lot of power in the first season. However, they also made a few enemies, and they were not indestructible.
According to ancient records, Tiberius, Livia’s son, succeeded Augustus as Emperor after his father died in 14 AD. We also know that Livia has involved in Gauis’ daughter Julia’s exile and the events that followed, which altered the political climate in Ancient Rome. As a result, a future Domina Se ason 2 might focus on these historical occurrences.
Is The Based On Real Story?
‘Domina’ is, in fact, based on a true story. Simon Burke developed and wrote the series as a tribute to one of the ancient world’s most influential female figures. The series’ writer fully acknowledged Livia Drusilla’s prominence in ancient Roman culture and world history. The Empress, in his perspective, was a “game changer” for women who followed in her footsteps. The creators desired a historically realistic show. Therefore, the creator conducted an extensive study to recreate the era as accurately as possible.
Burke revealed that several of the show’s characters are made up, including Livia’s chained companion Antigone and the brothel owner Balbina. These characters were created to add to the story’s dramatic element. Marcus Livius Drusus Claudianus, Gaius Julius Caesar, and Tiberius Claudius Nero, three of the series’ primary protagonists, are based on actual figures. The Roman civilization is portrayed as an indulgent and decadent utopia, much like modern-day culture, and part of this is definitely accurate.
