'Genius' Renewed For Season 3

National Geographic Channel announced today that Genius has been picked up for a third season. As it did with its first renewal announcement a year ago, the good news comes a week before the premiere of Season 2 on April 24.
The scripted anthology series premiered last year to generally positive reviews from critics. It grabbed the attention of audiences as well, with Season 1 attracting over 45 million viewers worldwide, making it the cable network's best-ever launch of a new series.
Each new season of Genius focuses on one of history's most-brilliant minds. The first season chronicled the life of physicist Albert Einstein, Season 2 will follow famous artist Pablo Picasso, and it was announced today that Season 3's subject will be iconic literary figure Mary Shelley, perhaps best known for her novel 'Frankenstein'.
