FX will be getting another Kurt Sutter drama back soon.

The network announced today that they have ordered The Bastard Executioner to series.

A period drama, The Bastard Executioner 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. But when that violence finds him again he is forced to pick up the bloodiest sword of all.

“I love history. I love theology. I love blood. It’s been very satisfying weaving fact and fiction to create a new mythology that combines all these elements. And with this extraordinary cast — Stephen Moyer, Katey Sagal and newcomer, Lee Jones — this world explodes on screen,” said Sutter.

The Bastard Executioner features series regulars Lee Jones, Stephen Moyer, Katey Sagal, Flora Spencer-Longhurst, Kurt Sutter, Sam Spruell, Darren Evans, Danny Sapani, Timothy V. Murphy, Sarah White, Sarah Sweeney, Elen Rhys, Ethan Griffiths and guest star Matthew Rhys.

Sutter will serve as executive producer along with Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo, and Paris Barclay. The pilot was written by Sutter and directed by Barclay.

Are you excited for Sutter’s new series?

Law & Order: SVU
Surrendering Noah

In sixteen seasons, finales of SVU rarely make me nervous. It’s just not that kind of show. Or, rather, it is very much that kind of show, and so finales just don’t stick out so much. But this time? Between the title of the episode and the promo for it, I’m not at all sure what we can expect to happen- good or bad.

It all starts out positively- Liv is officially recommended to adopt Noah. But the matter of Noah’s birth father comes up- and quite timely too, considering the squad will be covering Johnny D’s case. Liv doesn’t want to lie on her court records, but listing him as Noah’s father could lead to problems.

The slow build up to confronting Blaine these last nine episodes speeds up a bit as Liv’s attempt at processing Lowell’s death goes about as well as you’d expect after the case of the week involves a familiar victim with an alcoholic’s brain.  All the while, Major’s situation goes from bad to worse and you can’t help but feel bad for the man and the question of whether Liv and Ravi should tell him about zombies comes up.

If you could go back and change that one thing, would you? Even if that one thing created the person you are today? It’s something you might think about from time to time but you can’t actually do anything about it. Barry, on the other hand, can and that’s the situation Barry is presented with. He has a huge decision to make: will he go back in time and save his mother? And what will that mean for his current life, the people around him, and the relationships that he’s formed?

While that dilemma is the biggest thing in tonight’s episode, there are a number of other things going on, too — from an unlikely hero saving the day to a preview of someone getting powers to a cameo by the most famous helmet in the DC universe.
