Knightfall Premieres Wednesday December 6th at 10pm ET/PT on HISTORY
The ten episode season takes viewers inside the medieval politics and warfare of the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages who were entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most precious relics. “Knightfall” begins after the fall of the city of Acre, the Templar’s last stronghold in the Holy Land, where the Holy Grail is lost. Years later, a clue emerges suggesting the whereabouts of the Grail and sends the Templars, led by the noble, courageous and headstrong Templar Knight Landry (Tom Cullen), on a life or death mission to find the lost Cup of Christ. Oscar® and Golden Globe® nominee Jeremy Renner (American Hustle, The Hurt Locker) serves as executive producer.
