History UK Sets July UK Premiere Date For Knights Templar Drama ‘Knightfall’
The History Channel has finally set a UK air date for the long-anticipated medieval Knights Templar drama ‘Knightfall‘ it has been announced today.
From the same channel that brought you ‘Vikings’, ‘Knightfall’ tells the story of The Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic – the Holy Grail – and harbouring 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.
Tom Cullen (‘The Five’, ‘Downton Abbey’) leads an all-star cast from the UK and around the world including Jim Carter (‘Downton Abbey’), Padraic Delaney (‘The Tudors’, ‘Legend’), Simon Merrells (‘Dominion’, ‘Spartacus’), Ed Stoppard (‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’, ‘The Musketeers’) and Olivia Ross (‘War & Peace’, ‘Killing Eve’).
The 10 episode Season 1 of ‘Knightfall‘ comes to History UK on Tuesday, 17th July 2018 at 9pm.
