We’re heading back to the medieval ages in this feel-good musical comedy series Galavant! This show is like the love child of Monty Python and The Princess Bride. Showrunner Dan Fogelman of This Is Us created Galavant.
Warning: There will be spoilers!
Galavant is a dashing knight, down on his luck, determined to reclaim his reputation and his “Happily Ever After” by going after the evil King Richard, who ruined it the moment he kidnapped the love of Galavant’s life, Madalena. Princess Isabella and Galavant’s squire Sid join Galavant on his journey to save Madalena.
Meanwhile, the malevolent but weak-willed 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 (and the twists and turns that go along with them) through musical numbers composed and written by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater.
