Knightfall season two has finished airing in the US and the UK, and we’re still waiting to hear if the series, a medieval drama following the endeavours of the Knights Templar, will make it to season three.
how can you not continue a series with an official synopsis as cool as this one:
When protecting The Grail, it’s One. Bloody. Thing. After. Another. In the middle ages the most powerful, rich and secretive military unit/society/order who were most trusted worthy of protecting Christianity’s most prized relic – the grail – and harbouring secrets capable of great destruction.
Knightfall is deeply involved in the secretive world of the legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. Knights Templar has never been fully told so far, from the intriguing battles in Palestine to the very complex relationship with the king of the France, from the betrayal and that led to their ultimate dissolution. The story of them never was fully told
Release date of Knightfall Season 3
Season one didn’t exactly set the ratings on fire on The History Channel when it first aired in December 2017.
It was enough to greenlight a second season, but they tried something different with season two, airing it in March 2019. Going by this pattern, expect it in June 2021, but these things can be hard to predict – season two wasn’t exactly ratings smash either.
Knightfall averaged a terrible 0.12 rating within the 18-49 demographic, getting around only 650k viewers per episode during its second season. That’s a 50% drop in viewers from the first season.
The plot of Knightfall Season 3
The series is currently facing a lot of doubts going. Critics were harsh with their review of Season two. It had been shunned as”a lumpy, awkwardly paced, derivative show”. The story was told by the drop in viewership, to prove things worse. The show’s average viewership halved between the two seasons.
While the corona pandemic struck, to this precarious situation, another nail was added. That puts questions within the access to budget for the series. We might find a Season 3 if the series manages to survive those ordeals. It might follow the schedule of Season two with eight episodes.
The cast of Knightfall Season 3
There is a hope that Tom Cullen, Jim Carter, Pádraic Delaney, Simon Merrells, Julian Ovenden, Ed Stoppard, Sarah-Sofie Boussnina, Tom Forbes and mainly Mark Hamill are all going make a return in this season..
