HISTORY’s new scripted series Knightfall follows the Knights Templar, a legendary organization of warrior monks, as they desperately search for the Holy Grail in France — and in an exclusive trailer, that quest gets bloody quick.
The show picks up in 1306, toward the end of the Templars’ run as one of the most powerful organizations in the Christian world. Thanks to the bloody battles of the Crusades, the Templars are losing allies at the same time they’re gaining enemies, such as the King of France. With the help of a special sword and the knowledge that the Holy Grail is somewhere in France, the Templars bet everything on this grand quest.
Knightfall was executive-produced by Jeremy Renner alongside showrunner Dominic Minghella. It stars Tom Cullen, Pádraic Delaney, Simon Merrells, Olivia Ross, Ed Stoppard, Sabrina Bartlett, Jim Carter, and Julian Ovenden. Watch the trailer above, and look for Knightfall coming soon to HISTORY.
