The epic drama Knightfall returns with a force. The second season of the show, which will be released on HISTORY (formerly The History Channel), will continue the saga of the Knights Templar and their main character Landry (Tom Cullen). He will not be alone – Mark Hamill himself accompanies him for the second season (he does not project himself, he actually appears), and today we have a first look (and hear) to Hamill in action.
The Legend of Star Wars will feature Talus on the show described by HISTORY as "a battle-hardened Templar veteran of the Crusades who has lived in captivity for ten years in the Holy Land". Talus will now be given the task of training new members of the Order, and as the teaser illustrates, he will lead a moral battle royale with Landry.
Although it's hard for us to get the image of Luke Skywalker completely out of our heads, Hamill is far from the only trick of any farm Boys. While we can definitely hear shadows of Old Man Luke (from Star Wars: The Last Jedi ) and even some of his legendary voice for the Joker (in Batman: The Animated Series ) this one Character seems to be more than interesting enough to go into Templar politics. What do you get with a small hatch, a pinch of jokers and several heaped spoons of classic Hamill originality? Maybe something fantastic.
The exhibition explores the politics and intrigues of the Knights Templar, all from their own perspective. According to HISTORY, they were the "most powerful, prosperous and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages". They also make many characters of Game of Thrones look pretty.
Is it a coincidence that Hamill plays another mysterious knight and not less in a show called Knightfall ? As a joker, did not he consistently try to bring about a … dark knightly fall? See you soon …
Knightfall Season 2 does not have a premiere date yet, but if you want to catch up before Hamill comes on stage, Season 1 is now running on Netflix
