Plot Synopsis

Based on the famed explorer's adventures in Kublai Khan's court at the center of a brutal war in 13th century China, MARCO POLO is a one-hour series that reveals a tale of high politics, masterful manipulation and deadly warfare among clashing empires. After three years of crossing seas, deserts and the Silk Road, a young Marco finds himself a prisoner of Kublai, who is battling his warmonger brother for rule over Mongolia. As tensions grow between rulers, Marco begins a dangerous relationship with the Blue Princess, and later searches for the mastermind behind a murderous plot, the culprit behind the assassination attempt of Kublai, and a way to infiltrate the walled city of Xiangyang. And when Kublai takes a bold step to become emperor of the world, Marco's loyalty is put to the ultimate test. On Friday, December 12, 2014, Netflix released all 10 episodes of MARCO POLO's first season.
On Friday, July 1, 2016 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire 10-episode second season of MARCO POLO. Kublai Khan promotes Marco Polo to the Order of the Mongol Knights and Kaidu challenges Kublai's rule as the King of the Mongol Empire. The great Khan is in a tough position after executing his brother, Ariq, last season. The fact that Kublai killed his own brother as well as his favoritism toward Marco may sway the people of the Yuan Dynasty in favor of Kaidu's rule.
