Musical Comedy at it’s best!
The first season consists of eight episodes and the series was renewed for a second season of ten episodes on May 7, 2015, which premiered on January 3, 2016.
The series follows the adventures of a dashing knight, Galavant, who is down on his luck and is determined to reclaim his reputation. He also wants his “Happily Ever After” back from the evil King Richard, who kidnapped the love of Galavant’s life, Madalena. Galavant is assisted by Princess Isabella, whose kingdom has been conquered by King Richard, and Sid, his squire. Meanwhile, the wimpy Richard tries to win over the scheming Madalena and seeks help from his brawny henchman, Gareth, and his chef, Vincenzo. The episodes chronicle Galavant’s journeys through funny musical numbers.
