Don Handfield has done a fantabulous job by directing the ancient series of Kings and Knights named Knightfall along with his co-director Richard Rayner. This fictional drama, although received average reviews at Rotten Tomatoes, the viewers have loved the show!
But, the more important question is whether Knightfall is coming with the 3rd season or not? Are we going to see more of King Philippe’s orchestration in the era of 1307 and the lives of the Knights Templar or is season 2 is the last of all! Read below to find out!
Knightfall: Release Date
Season 1 of Knightfall, which premiered in History Network had nine wholesome episodes with a runtime of about 40 minutes. Season 2 also followed the same pattern. But now, History Network has refused to produce a 3rd season of this drama series in the previous year that is 2020, much to the disappointment of fans.
But, there’s still light at the end of the tunnel because there have been spiraling rumors on the internet that Knightfall can be taken over by some other television distributor who would then air the show. Our fingers are crossed!
The portrayal of the characters in Knighfall is totally on point making the show an interesting watch from the 1st season itself! If a 3rd season is made, we will be having the talented Tom Cullen playing the role of Laundry de Lauzon, Simon Merrells as Tancrede, Sarah-Sofie Boussnina as Adelina, Padraic Delaney in the role of Gawain, and Ed Stoppard in the phenomenal role of King Philip.
Other important actors include Tom Forbes aka Prince Louise, Julian Ovenden aka William De Nogaret, and Mark Hamill as Talus!
Since there is uncertainty over the release of season 3 of this fictional series, there have been many plotlines that have already begun circulating as people have started their speculation of what to expect in the upcoming season.
It can be that in season 3 we get to see Pope Clement getting persecuted for his crimes against the Templars abiding by King Philip’s every word just like a mere puppet of his which angered the Knights even more! We could also get a glimpse of how the Templars managed to escape which remains a very well hidden suspense! That being said it is certain that season 3 will be a rollercoaster ride with more battles, killings, and live affairs! We do hope to see it as soon as possible!
Avid watchers of Knighfall are well aware that by the final few episodes we see that King Philips is brutally assassinated by his trusted knight Landry who betrays Philip’s army and stakes a sword right through Philip’s chest! As a leader of the Knights of Templar who have been subjugated in the hands of the oppressive ruler, Landry vows to protect his fellow knights as well as his daughter in the future.
Gawain, Landry’s friend also joins Landry in the bloody war and succeeds in dethroning and murdering King Philips. in the end, we see all the courageous and rebellious knights rejoicing their victory amidst rain! Here’s the chilling trailer of season 2!
