Plot Synopsis

This musical comedy fairytale centers on the dashing hero Galavant, who has a chance to take revenge and restore his "happily ever after" years after losing the love of his life, Madalena, to the evil King Richard. Once upon a time, Galavant was a slayer of dragons, protector of the innocent, and defender of the less fortunate. But one day, the evil King Richard fell for Madalena and kidnapped Galavant's ladylove. On Madalena and King Richard's wedding day, Galavant courageously fought his way back to the palace to rescue his love, but Madalena stunned Galavant -- and broke his heart -- when she announced that she was choosing fame, fortune, and the crown over Galavant. Five years later, Galavant is still heartbroken, drowning his sorrows in drink. Having given up on heroics, he's a bit out of shape and flat broke, but his faithful squire, Sid, sees a momentous opportunity when Princess Isabella of Valencia arrives in search of "The Great Galavant." She asks him to save her kingdom from its evil invader, who just happens to be King Richard. Galavant seeks revenge on his nemesis and wants to win back Madalena, but he doesn't realize that Isabella might not be revealing the whole story -- and first he has to try to fit into his hero pants. GALAVANT premiered on Sunday, January 4, 2015 from 8-9pm ET/PT, as ABC broadcast back-to-back half-hour episodes on consecutive Sundays. In the season finale of GALAVANT, ABC aired back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first episode (8pm), "My Cousin Izzy," Isabella wants Galavant to try to impress her parents with attentive small talk, but he's confident that breaking everyone out of prison will impress them and save them from certain death. Galavant gets his opportunity for a hero moment when King Richard challenges his brother to a duel and needs a champion to fight for him. The in the finale (8:30pm), "It's All the Executions," Galavant enlists King Richard in a plot to kill Kingsley before the duel...but ends with a drunken whimper. Will Gareth kill King Richard in the duel? Will Galavant rescue everyone? Will Madalena find a new "boy toy?" Season 2 of GALAVANT premiered on Sunday, January 3, 2016 from 8-9pm ET/PT, as ABC debuted back-to-back new episodes. The ten-episode season runs each Sunday night for five consecutive weeks, as Galavant, having discovered the dark side of Madalena, embarks on an unlikely bromance with King Richard and fights to rekindle the romance with his true love, Isabella. In the season opener (8pm), "A New Season...aka Suck It Cancellation Bear," bad advice results in Galavant and the crew being shipwrecked, and they end up traveling by foot in order to get back to Richard's kingdom. Later, Galavant and King Richard find themselves at The Enchanted Forest Pub in West Hollow-wood where they are forced into working there by the owner who sees Galavant in a different light. Meanwhile in Valencia, Madalena rules as Queen, and Gareth demands his due when he is announced as King, with Sid as his assistant. Elsewhere in Hortensia, Isabella is imprisoned in her jewel box by her 12-year-old cousin as her parents prepare for their wedding. Then, in the night's second episode (8:30pm), "World's Best Kiss," Galavant and Richard see a fortune teller who is able to connect Galavant to Isabella using a crystal ball. Isabella receives Galavant's "call" as she is plotting her escape from Hortensia. Unfortunately, it's a "bad connection," and Isabella hears only every other word. She is devastated by the call, but Galavant believes it went well. He promises to return to her as soon as he drops Richard off at his castle. The only problem is that Richard's castle seems to have disappeared.
On Sunday, January 31, 2016 from 8-9pm ET/PT, ABC premiered the Season 2 finale of GALAVANT, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first new episode (8pm), "Battle of the Three Armies," all hope seems lost for Isabella and the people of Hortensia in their war against Valencia -- until Galavant arrives with his zombie army. Meanwhile, Gareth abandons Madalena after he realizes that she betrayed him and is learning (and using) the Dark Dark Evil Way. Then, in the finale (8:30pm), "The One True King (To Unite Them All)," under Madalena and Wormwood's spell, the zombie army revolt against Galavant and company, until Sid arrives with an unlikely army of his own. Galavant, Gareth, and Sid's army battle the Zombies while Isabella fights Madalena. Meanwhile, Richard goes after Wormwood, who attacks the lizard/pet dragon Tad Cooper, which provokes Richard to perform a (nearly) heroic act. Elsewhere, Gareth tries to reason with Madalena, but she is driven to learn how to use her newly acquired dark magic. Weird Al Yankovic guest stars as Monk in the finale.
