Kurt Sutter returns to FX with a new darkly themed drama that also seems like it’s FX’s stab at getting some of the Game of Thrones audience with The Bastard Executioner. Starring Lee Jones as a knight who vows to never fight again after seeing the horrors of war, he’s forced to become an executioner by the king’s men or be killed himself. Katey Sagal co-stars as the mysterious Annora of the Alders and the show will also dive into the events surrounding the Welsh rebellion. It looks appropriately grim and dark for a Sutter show, but hopefully it won’t nosedive like Sons of Anarchy arguably did in it’s final season. FX has picked up a 10 episode first season of the show and it will debut in September, check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
