HISTORY(R) UNVEILS FIRST-LOOK OF MARK HAMILL IN SEASON TWO OF DRAMA SERIES 'KNIGHTFALL'

New York, NY - September 26, 2018 - Mark Hamill (Star Wars, BAFTA-winning voice of The Joker) is going from lightsaber to sword in season two of HISTORY's drama series "Knightfall." Today, the network revealed a first-look photo of Hamill in character as "Talus," a battle-hardened Knight Templar veteran of the Crusades, who survived captivity for ten years in the Holy Land and is tasked with training the new initiates to the Order. Starring Tom Cullen ("Downton Abbey," "Gunpowder") as the courageous and headstrong Templar Knight, Landry, who last season we left grief-stricken but hopeful, season two will explore this dark time in history from the Templar perspective, embracing an authentically grittier, darker, and more brutal Medieval period than has ever been seen before.

"Knightfall" goes inside the medieval politics and warfare of the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages who were entrusted with protecting Christianity's most precious relics. The story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now, and "Knightfall" goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks to learn who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.

Season two of "Knightfall" is currently in production in Prague.

"Knightfall" is an A+E Studios production in association with The Combine and Midnight Radio. Aaron Helbing serves as showrunner and executive producer. Executive producers for Midnight Radio are Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg. Don Handfield (Touchback, The Founder, Kill the Messenger) and Richard Rayner (L.A. Without A Map) serve as creators and executive producers for The Combine, with Oscar(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominee Jeremy Renner (American Hustle, The Hurt Locker) also serving as executive producer. Cyrus Voris ("Legends"), Ethan Reiff ("Legends"), Rick Jacobson ("Ash vs Evil Dead") and Barry Jossen also executive produce. Arturo Interian is the executive producer for HISTORY. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for "Knightfall."
