Tv Season Info

"Knightfall" goes deep into the inner sanctum of the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution on Friday the 13th -- a date which became synonymous with bad luck -- the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now.

Critic Reviews for Knightfall Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

The cast is good, the fight scenes prolific, the overall lifting not heavy. Grailies among you could do worse.

Dec 6, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The series takes a fascinating historical moment and uses it as an excuse to channel a half-dozen fictionalized histories and renders something specific relatively generic.

Dec 5, 2017 | Full Review…

This is a lumpy, awkwardly paced, derivative show that doesn't boast much in the way of impressive visuals or engaging characters.

Dec 7, 2017 | Full Review…

It's historical drama at it's gory and fiery best.

Apr 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Knightfall is great fun.

Jul 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Knightfall does something which is quite hard to achieve -- it takes one of the most mysterious and charismatic secret societies in history and turns them into a talky ho-hum version of the Knights of the Round Table.

Sep 27, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

The series about the twilight of the most famous warrior monks and the grail is disappointing. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

There's enough chainmail, swordfights, and backstabbing court intrigue (literally) to satisfy the casual historical drama fan.

Jan 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Viewers certainly won't be bored by Landry's pursuit of the Grail and the series makes the escalation of Nogaret's villainous scheming just as energetic, even when both threaten to teeter into more outlandish territory.

Dec 7, 2017 | Full Review…

Though the heart of the story appears to be the search for the Grail, there's enough going on along the edges to keep viewers initially satisfied.

Dec 7, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It may not wow as much as Vikings has - at least not yet. But it has all the right pieces to.

Dec 7, 2017 | Full Review…

I feel like Knightfall has found a sweet spot where the right combination of bloody action, sex, mysterious alliances and two-timing plans can easily draw in fans who are less likely to be interested in shows that offer such things.

Audience Reviews for Knightfall: Season 1

    Good series so far (S1), lots of drama, fights/romance, direction changes, probably close to things that occurred in the period. Hope the series can maintain the momentum.
  • May 23, 2020
    A parody of the history, can't believe they permit such a false and far from the real story, to be made in a serie. This misinformed people about history of Phillipe IV Le Bel king of France. If you want the real story, which is a masterpiece, read the book written by Maurice Druon, Les Rois Maudits.

    Pretty good show. Good setting and interesting atmosphere.
  • Apr 02, 2020
    shitty and corny acting , historically not accurate should not be listed under history, the actors just seem fake and forced
  • Feb 21, 2020
    This is an awesome show, with a great story, great acting, great staff. Needs to be kept going.
  • Feb 16, 2020
    By far the best thing about KNIGHTFALL is the steps the aristocracy and leadership take to avoid all-out war. Epic medieval and fantasy wars are fun sometimes, but this show is about people striving to maintain power and avoid all those heavy casualties. Do they really have the lives of the people in mind? This isn't an epic of excellent sword choreography, but it has some interesting power shifts and looks closely at what is the true value of religious artifacts.

    muito bom gostei muito da historia
  • Jan 30, 2020
    Weak and very boring. Don't recomend !
  • Jan 16, 2020
    Not very good at all. But the king of France is the live action version of Lord Farquaad from Shrek. It's amazing and sad. This show is on the History channel but resembles more of "Shrek" than actual history.
  • Dec 21, 2019
    Staggeringly good. How did this one pass me by so long? Finally a good portrayal of the Templars. Story, action, Twists, intrigue... Amazing.
