Kurt Sutter recently said, “I love history. I love theology. I love blood,” in a statement about his upcoming FX show, The Bastard Executioner — and those things are all apparent in the first trailer for the series, which first debuted during the season 2 premiere of The Strain on Sunday.

The Bastard Executioner — Sutter’s first show since Sons of Anarchy wrapped up in 2014 — stars Sutter himself along with Katey Sagal, Stephen Moyer, Flora Spencer-Longhurt, Lee Jones, and Sam Spruell. The drama will focus on one of King Edward I’s warrior knights who can’t get away from violence even after he vows to give up fighting.

Watch the trailer for the show, which will premiere on FX this fall, below.
