Plot Synopsis

Created and written by ROBOT CHICKEN Executive Producers John Harvatine IV and Tom Root, CROSSING SWORDS is a half-hour, stop-motion animated comedy series that follows goodhearted hero wannabe Patrick, who lands his dream job as a squire -- only to learn the royal castle is a corrupt hornet's nest of horny monarchs, crooks and charlatans. Young Patrick dreams of earning his knighthood and dispensing justice to evildoers. He's driven by his goodhearted, earnest nature, but also by guilt: his own siblings are some of the land's most notorious crooks. However, when Patrick finally lands a coveted squire position at the royal castle, his dream job quickly turns into a nightmare. In this kingdom, corruption starts at the top, and staying true to his lofty goals will be a thornier proposition than Patrick anticipated. Patrick's excitement to start his new squire job is quickly dampened when he is placed in charge of deciding who to execute as part of King Merriman's publicity stunt. While Patrick struggles between pleasing the King and staying true to his anti-death penalty morals, Coral and Ruben campaign for the high profile role of executee. They don't want to be executed, but it's an honor to be recognized. When Patrick scores highly coveted tickets to a Kraken watching cruise for his parents, he sees an opportunity to impress his hard-to-please father. The gift blows up in his face when the cruise is hijacked by a radical protest group and his parents are taken hostage. Now Patrick must stop the hijacking at any cost, even if it means making a deal with the devil. On Friday, June 12, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Hulu released the entire 10-episode first season of CROSSING SWORDS.
The sophomore season of CROSSING SWORDS dropped on Friday, December 10, 2021, as Hulu released the entire 10-episode new season. Season 2 represents the next chapter in the adventures of Patrick the long-suffering squire as he climbs the ladder of knighthood in the service of the volatile King Merriman. There are new friends to make, new enemies to vanquish, and new horrors to scar Patrick for life; including bloodthirsty leprechauns, an island of killer monkeys, and a shadowy villain who could destroy everything Patrick has ever known! In the season opener, "Shamrock Shakedown," Patrick finds himself on trial for betraying the kingdom, and only avoids punishment with a Hail Mary promise to the king: that he will find the legendary leprechaun gold.
