Camelot Series to Premiere April 1 on Starz

December 20, 2010

Starz Network has announced they will air the premiere episode of Camelot on Friday, April 1 in the 10 p.m. time slot previously occupied by Spartacus: Blood and Sand. No, that date is no joke.

The series is a bold retelling of King Arthur's tale filmed entirely in Ireland. It is driven by a formidable cast including Joseph Fiennes (FlashForward) as Merlin, Jamie Campbell Bower (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) as Arthur, Eva Green (Casino Royale) in her television debut as Morgan, Tamsin Egerton as Guinevere, Claire Forlani as Igraine, and Peter Mooney as Kay.

A total of 10 Camelot episodes have been ordered and are expected to air into mid-June. Check out the first images of Merlin, Arthur and Morgan as they appear in mid-season episodes below.
