FX Networks prepares to air the series premiere of the new show from Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter, The Bastard Executioner.
The moment we have all been waiting for is finally upon us. FX Networks is finally set to air the series premiere of their new original series The Bastard Executioner. The series is straight from the twisted yet brilliant psyche of Kurt Sutter, the creator of one of the most popular FX Original Series of all time, Sons of Anarchy.
The story of The Bastard Executioner will take us to a much different time and place than his previous series. We are transported all the way back to the 14th century in Northern Wales where a young man by the name of Wilkin Brattle has been torn apart by the war that has ravaged both his life and his soul.
Despite his efforts to lay down his sword and live his life as a normal man, the violence finds him once again and he finds himself, sword in hand, for a much different purpose.
Guided by a woman named Annora of the Alders, Brattle finds himself on his path to embracing his fate. Unfortunately, there are many people along the way who look to use him for their own misguided purposes. This is where we meet Milus Corbett, who is played in The Bastard Executioner by True Blood star Stephen Moyer. Corbett has grand aspirations of political power and seems to have no issues stepping on anyone who stands in his way.
FX has released a number of sneak peeks into the new series, and from what we have gathered the show is going to have many of the same dark and violent connotations as Sutter’s previous work. According to Stephen Moyer, the script is absolutely amazing and the characters are incredibly multi-layered. This sounds to us like we are about to embark on an incredible journey through a very rough and violent time in history.
As we prepare ourselves for tonight’s series premiere of The Bastard Executioner, here is a look at all the information you’ll need to make sure you don’t miss a moment of the action and drama.
