Knightfall is a story of a group of elite knights. The story is based on medieval times where violence became a common thing and life of people was at risk. People were dying because of illness and injuries. Knights were responsible for saving people’s lives and help the less fortunate ones. But meanwhile, they have to follow the code of honor.
In the first season, the struggle of these knights against cruelty within their own ranks along with the outside forces that include king Philip’s son, Prince John of France, and many more is shown. In the first season, we also see the selfish interests of Prince John and how he pursued them.
The story of the second season started with William Marshal getting involved in the court intrigue and later on became the trusted advisor of King Henry II. On the way, he has to go through trials and tribulations.
In the second season historical Battle of Lincoln too was depicted. The battle of Lincoln took place between forces that remained loyal to King Richard and the allied of Philip Augustus. This was the time when Marshal became the most powerful man around the year 1216 – 1219. This was mainly because of the skills that were used by him for managing the Lackland’s affair soon after the death of King Henry III putting an end to the uprisings from the Welsh and Scottish.
Figures such as King John, Elanre chances or of Aquitaine, Isabel de Clare Marshal’s wife, Queen Maud, and Princess Alais too were featured in the second season. The story of season three likely begins from where it ended in the last season.
Fans have been eagerly waiting for the third season of the series but it is in no way coming this year. Some of the sources state that the series was canceled by Netflix last year May. Now only if some other networks pick up the series for streaming there are chances that season three may come later this year or the coming year. But as of now, there is no confirmation on season 3 of Kinghtfall.
Some sources also say that the production f the series is stopped due to the Pandemic which will resume once the situation is normal. But as we said earlier there is no confirmation about season 3. Nothing has been said by the showrunners, producers, and Netflix. Fans will have to wait a little longer until some good news arrive. For as of now we can say that Kinghtfall 3 is way far from reality and there are no chances of it coming to our TV screen this year.
