When the second season of Knightfall concluded in 2019, all fans were on the edge of their seats to know would they get Knightfall Season 3. The medieval drama sees the endeavors of the Knights Templar. When the second season was confirmed, Eli Lehrer, the EVP of Programming at History, said that in this era of ever-increasing competitions, they are proud of History as they continue to bring signature drama that is epic and has complex characters.
Then after a wait of about one year, we came to know about the fate of the show. Knightfall Season 3 was dropped by History. But then this cancellation does not mean that the show will never happen. Along with the History channel, the show also airs on Netflix. That means that it is possible that there are fans of the show on the streaming platform, and Netflix would decide to pick the show and bring more of it.
Netflix has picked some canceled shows in the past. So, it might do it again. If Netflix does pick up the show and brings Knightfall Season 3, what would happen? Here are all the details about it-
What Could Come Up?
Knightfall is a show that recounts the success, fall, persecution, and suppression of the Knights Templar. They were all orchestrated by King Philip IV of France in 13077. The series focuses on the fictional Templar leader- Landry Du Lauzon, a brave warrior who is discouraged by the Templars’ failure in the Holy Land. They are revived when the news of the Holy Grail getting resurfaced comes out.
In an interview, actor Tom Cullen reveals what could be coming up next on the show. He says that there are a number of storylines that need to be addressed. One big storyline is the one with Pope Clement. He rose to great heights, and Cullen thinks that the Templars would want some kind of revenge. They feel betrayed by his actions. Continuing, he revealed that Aaron Helbing, the showrunner, is wondering where they can go.
Olivia Ross says that she liked the scene because it is left open for a little interpretation. It is left to be seen if Grail is behind all this? The show has left the audience to decide what it is they want to believe. The lines are blurred there. But then something else takes over the whole storyline, and that isn’t something one would have expected.
Historian Dan Jones says that Knightfall takes cues from two very connected areas. One of them is the Real History of the Templars. Many characters are real people. These real people include Pope Boniface VIII, King Philip IV, Princess Isabella, and Queen Joan of France and Navarre.
Would Netflix Bring Knightfall Season 3?
In a statement, Cindy Holland, the head of original content at Netflix, said that when they decide to invest in a show, it is usually a combination of a number of things. First, they decide how much they want to invest based on the kind and number of viewers that will show up. If the audience does not show up, they start thinking about reasons to continue something that isn’t doing as well as they would have hoped for.
She continued to say that while critical acclaim is very important, they also want to stretch their investment dollars as far they can do good to their investors. Netflix has not yet officially announced anything about the show getting a renewal, but we still have good hopes. Let’s see what happens there. We will keep you updated with all the information about the show as we get it. So, you stay tuned.
