The 10-episode first season of “The Bastard Executioner” from Kurt Sutter, the Creator/Showrunner of the hit FX series “Sons of Anarchy,” will debut on September 15th with a two-hour premiere from 10 PM to midnight ET/PT.
The blood-soaked, medieval epic tells the story of Wilkin Brattle (Lee Jones), a 14th century warrior, whose life is forever changed when a divine messenger beseeches him to lay down his sword and lead the life of another man: a journeyman executioner. Set in northern Wales during a time rife with rebellion and political upheaval, Wilkin must walk a tight rope between protecting his true identity while also serving a mysterious destiny.
Guided by Annora (Katey Sagal), a mystical healer whose seeming omniscience keeps Wilkin under her sway; manipulated by Milus Corbett (Stephen Moyer), a devious Chamberlain with grand political aspirations; and driven by a deepening connection with the Baroness Lady Love Ventris (Flora Spencer-Longhurst), Wilkin struggles to navigate political, emotional and supernatural pitfalls in his quest to understand his greater purpose.
