Knightfall is a new series that premiered on Dec. 6 on History.
The full time cast features:

  • Sam Hazeldine as Godfrey, Masters of the Templars, mentor and father figure to Larry.
  • Padraic Delaney as Gawain, formerly the greatest Templar swordsman, but after a leg injury, he is told he can no longer fight.
  • Ed Stoppard as Philip IV of France
  • Olivia Ross as Queen Joan of France and Navarre, a “formidable diplomat and strategist”.
  • Julian Ovenden as Guillaume de Nogaret, Philip’s scheming counselor.
  • Sabrina Bartlett as Princess Isabella, daughter of Philip IV of France and Queen Joan, whose impending marriage promises a strong political alliance for France.
  • Bobby Schofield as Parsifal, a commoner who joins the Knights Templar pursuing vengeance.
  • Jim Carter as Pope Boniface VIII
  • Sarah-Sofie Boussnina as Adelina, a homeless thief rescued as a child by the Templars.

The season started off with warriors facing off against each other.

Toward the middle of the episode Landry and Philip established a companionship whereas they both seem to have conflict with the king’s adviser who happens to be up to no good.

Although, Larry and Philip are getting along and the Templars continue to be successful, Larry soon realizes that he wants to get back on the road and find a higher purpose other than just making money and being stingy with it.

Larry soon meets with Queen Joan, who seems to have a dislike for Philip that could possibly ruin Larry and Philip’s friendship.

After overhearing de Nogaret’s plot to murder and rob the jews from other people, Joan decides to tells Landry first instead of her own husband.

A young woman who happens to be Jewish throws her belongings and picks up arms to battle against the attackers even though she may not be have an important role.

This show is a must see for people who are interested about the Knights Templar and what led to it as well and how did all the characters survived due to all the failures they had to overcome too.

The characters are very interesting and dynamical that will keep viewers attention and not disappoint them in any way.

These leaders and warriors are interesting to watch because many people who go to war and deal with other warriors can relate to dealing with the unexpected outcomes/challenges they have to face as well.

Viewers should expect many wars against the cast members to break, Sir Landry being reinvigorated by the news that the Holy Grail has resurfaced.

Knightfall is aired every Wednesday at 7 p.m. on History.
