Jedi Knight turns Templar Knight, Mark Hamill joins Knightfall

Knightfall premiered on the HISTORY channel in December 2017 and recounts the history and myth of the Knights Templar.

Knightfall stars Tom Cullen as the Templar leader, Landry, a veteran of the Crusades, looking for his mentor’s killer and the location of the Holy Grail. If you missed Season 1 you can watch it on Netflix now.

Mark Hamill joins Season 2 as Talus, “A battle-hardened Knight Templar veteran of the Crusades, who survived captivity for ten years in the Holy Land and is tasked with training the new initiates to the Order.”

HISTORY states Season 2 will “explore this dark time in history from the Templar perspective, embracing an authentically grittier, darker, and more brutal Medieval period than has ever been seen before.”

Also joining Season 2 is Tom Forbes as Prince Louis, “the violent and unpredictable son of King Philip and heir to the throne” and Genevieve Gaunt as Isabella, the daughter of King Philip.

Knightfall season 2 will air in 2019, no specific date yet.

Historian and author, Dan Jones, serves as the historical consultant for the series.

Knightfall Synopsis:
The Knights Templar were the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic—the Holy Grail—and harboring secrets capable of great destruction.

KNIGHTFALL goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their complex relationship with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution, the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now.
