The Musketeers Returns And There’s A New Villain In Town
BBC One releases new trailer for season two of The Musketeers, by executive producer Jessica Pope and Adrian Hodges executive producer and lead writer, and producer Colin Wratten.
In this second season, Adrian Hodges says “I think this is a more demanding journey than before, as we’ve upped the serial element and taken the show in a slightly tough and perhaps more surprising direction. It’s everything you might expect but taken a degree or two further than last time. The tone remains the same but this is a darker and sexier Musketeers.”
Hodges adds: “Some things have changed, some things remain the same – the four boys, D’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis are still very much at the center of the action, but now they have a new and deadly opponent – the Comte De Rochefort, played by Marc Warren.”
Drama series, The Musketeers, returns for season two in January. The series, which has thrilled audiences across the globe, having sold to 140 territories, is set on the streets of seventeenth century Paris, where law and order is more of an idea than a reality. Returning for season two is Luke Pasqualino (Skins, The Borgias) as D’Artagnan, Tom Burke (Great Expectations, The Hour) as Athos, Santiago Cabrera (Merlin, Heroes) as Aramis and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Porthos. They are joined by Marc Warren (Hustle, Mad Dogs) as the Comte De Rochefort. Created by Adrian Hodges (My Week With Marilyn), this is a fresh and contemporary take on the classic characters in the much-loved novel by Alexandre Dumas.
The Musketeers Season 2 premieres Saturday, January 17 at 9:00pm ET on BBC America
and Friday, January 2 at 9:00pm ET on BBC One.
