An official narrative for season 2 of Domina reads:

Head of Epix Micheal Wright in a statement said: “The first season of Domina drove the largest cross-platform audience average for any Epix freshman series in 2021.” He continued: “Season two promises viewers an even more compelling and exciting ride from creator Simon Burke and executive producers Lucy Bedford, Muirinn Lane Kelly, and Carmel Maloney.”
“Season two will plunge us back into the intrigue and corruption of ancient Rome, as the indomitable Livia Drusilla fights to maintain her position in a world in which the quest for power is pursued at any cost. This time Livia’s hands will get very dirty, and the price will be higher than even she can imagine,” Bedford explained.
