History has announced the debut date for its upcoming Knights Templar medieval drama, Knightfall.
The 10-episode series premieres on History on December 6 at 10pm ET/PT. The drama delves into the most mysterious and powerful military order of the Middle Ages, the Knights Templar.
Knightfall will chronicle the Templar Order’s life or death mission to recover the Holy Grail, which was lost during the fall of the city of Acre, as well as the Templar’s clash with the King of France, and the eventual demise of the Templar Order on Friday the 13th, 1307.
Downton Abbey alum Tom Cullen stars as the headstrong Templar Knight Landry, who embarks on the mission to find the Holy Grail. Additionally, Pádraic Delaney (The Tudors) stars as a crippled Templar who was once the greatest swordsman in the order, and Simon Merrells (Spartacus) plays the steadfast and brave Tancrede.
