One of the teasers of the FX original series offers hints about why the lead protagonist Wilkin Brattle (played by Australian actor Lee Jones) has decided to choose the bloodiest sword of all.

The series cast includes Sons of Anarchy star Katey Sagal as Annora of the Alders, Stephan Moyer as Milus Corbett, Flora Spencer-Longhurst as Baroness Lowry and Timothy V Murphy as Father Ruskin .
The Bastard Executioner will premiere in September on FX network.
