Antonio Banderas is a painting genius in the new official trailer for the upcoming second season of Ron Howard and Brian Grazer's Emmy-nominated anthology series, which is delving into the life of legendary Spanish artist Pablo Picasso.

Following the show's first season which had explored the life of famed physicist Albert Einstein (as portrayed by Geoffrey Rush and Johnny Flynn), the second installment is continuing its goal to examine history's greatest minds, offering a rich portrait of the influential 20th-century painter who was known for reinventing the art world as well as having numerous fiery relationships with women.

Banderas is portraying Picasso from the age of 40 and up, while Alex Rich (from the Netflix series "GLOW") plays the artist in his youth. The cast also includes Clemence Poesy, Robert Sheehan, Poppy Delevingne, and Aisling Franciosi.

"Genius: Picasso" is slated to premiere April 24th on the National Geographic network.

As one of the 20th century's most influential and celebrated artists, Pablo Picasso imagined and interpreted the world in totally new and unorthodox ways, reinventing our perception of creativity in the process.

Starring Antonio Banderas in the titular role, the second season of National Geographic's 10-part, Emmy-nominated global event series, GENIUS, explores how the Spanish-born artist’s passionate nature and relentless creative drive were inextricably linked to his personal life, which included tumultuous marriages, numerous affairs and constantly shifting political and personal alliances. GENIUS is executive produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer.
