The History Channel series, Knightfall, has been renewed for a second season. The show follows the fabled Knights Templar and their search for the Holy Grail. Also worth mentioning is Mark Hamill will be joining the cast as Talus, an experienced warrior of the Crusades who after being a prisoner in the Holy Land for a decade, returns to train new members of the Knights Templar

History’s Executive Vice President of Programming, Eli Lehrer had this to say in a statement from the network:
“In the face of ever-increasing competition, we’re proud of HISTORY’s track record of producing signature drama series that are epic in scope with complex characters. Wheter it’s the legendary Knights Templar, the extraordinary tale of medieval Norsemen, or the story of a formerly classified United States Air Force program investigating UFOs during the Cold War, these series reflect our commitment to bringing the defining, big canvas stories of history to life. We look forward to offering our viewers a grittier, darker ‘Knightfall’ in season two and welcoming Mark to the cast.”

I’ve watched a few episodes of Knightfall but didn’t finish the first season. It’s not that I didn’t like the show, I just have a long list of shows I already stay current on so it gets difficult. Perhaps Hamill coming aboard the show will be what gets me on board with the show again.
