Galavant exclusive: Matt Lucas will bring democracy to the kingdom
If last Sunday’s supersized season premiere of Galavant didn’t whet your appetite for the criminally underrated medieval comedy, here’s a chance to take another sword stab at it.
English comedian Matt Lucas is coming to Galavant, and he’s bringing a brand-new political process with him.
In the season’s third episode, Galavant (Joshua Sasse) and Richard (Timothy Omundson) finally find their way back to Richard’s kingdom, only to discover that it’s overrun with … the democratic system.

EW has an exclusive first listen to the season’s politically prescient musical number, led by the purveyor of the process, Lucas’s Peasant John. Add his humble role as Hortensia’s man-of-the-people peasant to Lucas’s already hefty comic resumé including Little Britain, Bridesmaids, Alice in Wonderland, and Les Miserables (not quite comic, but still).
The season ahead will also welcome Nick Frost and Sheridan Smith, among other British stars, to the Galavant clan.
