Knightfall – a historical drama TV show developed by Richard Rayner and Don Handfield for the History channel. It was released on the 6th of December 2017, in the United States.
In 1306, the Knights Templar were turning down their way as the most powerful associations in the Christian realm. Acre, the Templars’ last refuge, has fallen and after a few years later a rumor is caught that the fallen Grail is in that state. The Templars, driven by the brave, strong-minded, but great Templar Landry did shift their considerations to regain a niche in that Holy Land. Ever since they take the fight back to the Holy Land and then the battles become the Crusades. Now, the Templars are wasting allies and earning new and powerful opponents, including the King of France. The wealthy, legendary, and furtive military rank of warrior monks is trusted with protecting the Holy Grail and mysteries that are capable of damaging the Church.
THE RELEASE DATE –
Part I of Knightfall has earned plenty of reports that the channel had to permit its part II. But once the second part was delivered the viewership dropped by over 50% hence efficiently setting the show’s order at risk. Also, the show has failed to impress critics as well. As an outcome, it was declared in May 2020 that the show has been dropped. But there is a little chance that any other channel would take up the show from where the History channel has dropped off. All we need to do is have patience till the announcement.
THE PLOT –
The second installment of the finale concludes with Landry facing his arch-nemesis King Phillip and ruining him when the future of those templars who succeeded to escape is yet in the air. If at all the third installment is to take place, likely, those templars will be next focusing on Pope Clement as he was betrayed by the templars more than anyone by going against God. And also displaying as a pawn for Philip. Therefore, this part of the show promises to be an exciting one for all its fans and the viewers as well.
THE CAST –
According to the reports, the cast would probably include –
Tom Cullen as Landry de Lauzon,
Sarah-Sofie Boussnina as Adelina,
Ed Stoppard as King Philip,
Tom Forbes as Prince Louise,
Simon Merrells as Tancrede,
