Olympus, a 13 episode fantasy drama series, is headed to Syfy on April 2.

The new series stars Tom York (Tyrant) as Hero, the bastard son of  King Aegeus (Graham Shiels, Guardians of the Galaxy), and follows the adventures of a handful of brave men and women who set out to banish the gods to the realm of the unconscious – a place known as the Underworld or the Kingdom of Hades.

Armed with the Lexicon, a secret code that allows man to enter Olympus, the home of the Gods, Hero soon finds himself on a legendary quest, aided and thwarted in turns by a colorful collection of characters and mythological creatures.

Olympus also stars Matt Frewer (Max Headroom, Orphan Black), Sonita Henry (Star Trek, The Fifth Element) and Cas Anvar (Argo, The Expanse).

We’ve got a new promo trailer, suitably bursting with swords, sandals, magic, monsters and mayhem. to share below.

Olympus premieres April 2 at 10/9c on Syfy.
