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 (6)

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

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

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…

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

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.

Audience Reviews for Knightfall: Season 1

    The first and second seasons of this series. Satisfied my desire to have some action in my TV evening viewing. The acting is good, as are the production values and cinematography. The series also encouraged me to look of the history of the Knights Templar. I knew of the order, but didn't know much about them. It was nice to see that the History Channel and the production company. Did a fairly good job of representing the final years of the order. Since the series, is not intended to be a Historical documentary. There were some embellishments for dramatic impact and entertainment purposes.

    This show was a heart stopper for me I love it. I really hope it gets a second season or at the very least a big ending.

    I find the show to be a lot of fun. Great fight scenes and drama. In my opinion it gets better every episode.
  • Aug 24, 2019
    I thoroughly enjoy this show, both season 1 and season 2
  • Aug 03, 2019
    Hey i know you tuned in for a show about the Knights Templar searching for the Holy Grail, but here's a shitty love story between two selfish hypocrites instead. Enjoy.

    Powerful and strong. Very good series.
  • Jun 17, 2019
    One of my favorite series to date. A bit of mishaps on some storytelling but a great masterpiece nonetheless. Congrats to the team behind this. Hope Season 3 will be renewed because there are more events that need to be uncovered and solved.

    Knightfall is a brilliant television show that has wonderful acting and cinematography. I cannot recommend this enough.

    Don't think of this as a literal lesson in history. Some semblance to facts but not all. It's essentially a fantasy story. I found it quite entertaining and have found they've improved for season 2. Good quality acting and many unknown actors who are as talented as anyone, who also get their chance to advance their careers. Good sets and locations, even after losing most of one set to a fire. A well made production.

    The show does a great job of portraying it's chatacters as flawed people who struggle to live in a world of responsibility, duty, and honor. There are serious consequences for choices made and for that i appreciate the realistic approach to tackling the subject matter even though there are dramatic liberties taken with historical accuracy. This gives me hope for multiple seasons beyond the first 2. The show has a fantastic cast.
