Knightfall, a Czech-American historical fiction drama television series filmed in Prague, Czech Republic, and Dubrovnik, Croatia. It was created by Don Handfield and Richard Rayner. It was produced collectively by Michael Wray, Gideon Amir, and Nina Heyns.
Knightfall Season 3: Release Date
It was announced in January 2016 by history that Knightfall has been picked up for a 10-episode television series. Then Season 1 trailer was released on February 1, 2017, continuing the season release on December 6, 2017. On August 13, 2018, the series was renewed for a second season by history which was released on March 25, 2019. Later in May 2020, an announcement has been made of the series cancellation. Anticipated reasons are the drop in viewers of Season 2 despite trying to improve Season 2 after an average review of Season 1. So, the creators and the distributors are not willing to create another season. But if the viewers and the fan base of the series do some campaign type of thing to save the show then there’s a possibility of the creation of Knightfall Season 3 though that seems to be highly unlikely. But nothing’s predictable because it’s up to the creators and showrunners of the series whether they would like to revive the show for another season thinking of trying once more with something different that can lead to an increment in the viewership of the show.
Knightfall Season 3: Probable Plot and Cast
