Since the cable network found success with Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Starz is now hoping they’ll have a similar warm reception with Camelot, a new series focusing on the legend of King Arthur. Using Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’ Arthur, the epic series looks to have as many bloody battles and steamy romance as the sword-and-sandals predecessor. Featuring Joseph Fiennes (Merlin), Eva Green (Morgana) and newcomers Jamie Campbell Bower (Arthur) and Tamsin Egerton (Guinevere), this looks like the most intense telling of the medieval legend. But you can decide for yourself after checking out nine new images and watching the first trailer after the jump:

Here’s the official synopsis:

In the wake of King Uther’s sudden death, the sorcerer Merlin has visions of a dark future and installs Arthur as king. The 10-episode epic drama redefines the classic medieval tale of King Arthur with an exciting ensemble cast including: Joseph Fiennes reimagining the iconic role of Merlin, Jamie Campbell Bower as the young and reckless Arthur, and Eva Green in her television debut as the darkly powerful Morgan. The character-driven series also features Tamsin Egerton (Guinevere), Claire Forlani (Igraine) and Peter Mooney (Kay).
