What is the Story of Knightfall?
The legendary brotherhood of the Templars is quite an interesting and unique story. The story has been explored by many and adapted into several books, shows, and even video games. The group of assassins and warriors battle for their holy land and their trust in the brotherhood is limitless. Their war with the King of France leads to a gruesome ending with a horrid betrayal and the eventual dissolution. The day is a black one in the hearts of many, Friday the 13th, still, a feared superstition for many. Their battle with the Red Knights is a definite must-watch.
The first season of the show wasn’t up to the mark. The creators still did try their best to keep the show up for renewal and tried to exceed audience expectations from the first season. The second season saw an even bigger drop in ratings and audience scores. The ratings of the first season itself weren’t impressive enough to bring in new audiences.
