There’s nothing more dangerous than a Welsh man who has nothing to lose, apparently.

The Bastard Executioner, from creator Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy, The Shield) and starring Lee Jones, Stephen Moyer, Katey Sagal, Flora Spencer-Longhurst, Kurt Sutter and Sam Spruell, is headed to FX this Fall.

With an ensemble cast including Darren Evans, Danny Sapani, Timothy V. Murphy, Sarah White, Sarah Sweeney, Elen Rhys, Ethan Griffiths and Guest Star Matthew Rhys, the series tells the story of a warrior knight in King Edward I’s charge who is broken by the ravages of war and vows to lay down his sword.

However, tease the log lines, when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all.

“Kurt Sutter and Brian Grazer have been spectacular creative partners — and dear friends — to our studio for years, and their collaboration has resulted in a fantastic and epic new series,” said Fox Television Group Chairmen and CEOs Gary Newman and Dana Walden, whose Fox 21 TV Studios will produce the project with FX Productions, earlier this year.

“The Bastard Executioner, written by Kurt and directed by the talented Paris Barclay, is dangerous, brilliant, emotional and undeniable. This is the perfect follow-up to Sons and another huge event series for FX from Fox 21TVS and FXP. Viewers are in for a wild and spellbinding ride.”

We’ve got two new teasers, along with the original first look trailer, to share with you below.

The Bastard Executioner kicks off on FX this Fall.
