History Channel’s Knightfall has brought the political intrigue of the Knights Templar to cable tv for two seasons now. However, is the show performing well enough to see that a Knightfall Season 3?
The prognosis, regrettably, isn’t very good. Despite incorporating Mark Hamill (Star Wars) for its next season, Knightfall Season 2 has showcased a steep fall in ratings from the ratings-challenged initial year. Knightfall is averaging a gloomy 0.12 score in the 18-49 demographic and is attracting around just 650,000 viewers per incident total. That’s a nearly 50% drop in viewers from the first season.
A more market network like History Channel isn’t necessarily searching to get blockbuster numbers but these metrics still can’t assist its renewal opportunities.
There are always the chance of course that History just flat out enjoys Knightfall and wishes to see more. Even without the uncooked viewership numbers, Knightfall Season 2 has done very well creatively. Knightfall Happens in the early 1300s and follows the success and eventual collapse of the fabled Knights Templar under King Philip IV of France.
The series stars Tom Cullen as Landry du Lauzon, a literary senior god of the Knights Templar and veteran of the Crusades. Hamill joined the season 2 cast as Master Talus, a veteran templar who trains the new knights in Chartres Temple. Pádraic Delaney, Ed Stoppard, Simon Merrells, Julian Ovenden, and Jim Carter also star in the series with Genevieve Gaunt, Tom Forbes, and Clementine Nicholson joining Hamill as season 2 novices.
Although the outlook for Knightfall Season 3 may not be promising, we will update with new information as it arrives.
