DESCRIPTION: (from BBC America's press release, December 2014) BBC AMERICA's drama series, The Musketeers, returns for season two in January. The series, which has thrilled audiences across the globe, having sold to 140 territories, is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more of an idea than a reality. Returning for season two is Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) as D'Artagnan, Tom Burke (Great Expectations, The Hour) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes) as Aramis and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Porthos. They are joined by Marc Warren (Hustle, Mad Dogs) as the Comte De Rochefort. Created by Adrian Hodges (My Week With Marilyn), this is a fresh and contemporary take on the classic characters in the much-loved novel by Alexandre Dumas. The Musketeers premieres Saturday, January 17 at 9:00pm ET on BBC AMERICA.
