Knightfall Season 3 Get Cancelled Which Is Disappointing
There was a lot of uncertainty over the fate of the series producers were taking a lot of time in ordering the third season. There was all kind of speculations, and few were expecting it to return despite the 50% drop in the viewership. The second season ended on a cliffhanger, and as History tv has very few scripted tv series so chances of getting renewed were high. Fans were eager to know the fate of the brothers after they were sentenced to imminent death by fire.
But finally, the show was cancelled in May 2020. It’s disappointing this historical drama had a lot of potentials, and it’s not good to left it unfinished with many subplots hanging in uncertainty.
