Plot Synopsis

Set on the streets of 17th century Paris, where law and order is an idea more than a reality, King Louis XIII's personal bodyguards -- Athos, Aramis and Porthos -- are a crack-team of highly trained soldiers, standing resolutely for social justice, honor, valor, and love. D'Artagnan, a skilled fighter from rural Gascony, meets the three Musketeers while on a mission to right the wrong of his father's death. Although he meets the men in unfortunate circumstances, he finds kindred spirits in the other soldiers. Although still young, D'Artagnan has seen enough of the world to despise its corruption and compromise. Raised in the country and trained as a fighter since he was a boy, only Athos can match his exceptional skill with a sword. Athos is the glue that binds the Musketeers together. At first sight he can appear arrogant, but his offhand manner disguises a deep capacity for friendship. Handsome, a loner by nature but a faithful friend, Aramis is a complex figure. His love of women is notorious but he is very far from being a routine womanizer. Raised in desperate poverty and triumphing over every kind of adversity, Porthos has finally found his true family in the Musketeers. Intensely loyal to his friends and a natural fighter, he is the go-to guy for hand-to-hand combat. BBC America aired the U.S. premiere of THE MUSKETEERS on Sunday, June 22, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT. THE MUSKETEERS returned for its second season on Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on BBC America. Coming back for Season 2 are Luke Pasqualino as D'Artagnan, Tom Burke as Athos, Santiago Cabrera as Aramis and Howard Charles as Porthos. They are joined by Marc Warren as the Comte De Rochefort. In this second season, series creator Adrian Hodges says "I think this is a more demanding journey than before, as we've upped the serial element and taken the show in a slightly tough and perhaps more surprising direction. It's everything you might expect but taken a degree or two further than last time. The tone remains the same but this is a darker and sexier Musketeers. Some things have changed, some things remain the same -- the four boys, D'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis are still very much at the center of the action, but now they have a new and deadly opponent -- the Comte De Rochefort, played by Marc Warren." Marc Warren's character, Rochefort, is a man nursing many secrets and a very dark past. As the series progresses the true nature of his plotting is revealed and everyone around him is drawn into his sinister web. Ultimately only the Musketeers and their loyal allies and friends stand between him and a desperate act that will change all their lives forever. Guest stars include Colin Salmon and Antonia Thomas. Colin plays Tariq, a mysterious interloper on the run from Spain, and Antonia plays his daughter Samara, a gusty and resilient young woman whose life is put in danger when her father is exiled..
On Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, BBC America premiered the Season 2 finale of THE MUSKETEERS. In the season ender, "Trial and Punishment," the Musketeers must risk everything to save France from Rochefort's treacherous plan. While Porthos seeks to lure the Spanish spymaster to Paris to prove Rochefort's betrayal to the King, Athos and d'Artagnan must save Constance from certain death. However will they be able to protect Aramis and the Queen before Rochefort gets to them first? The fate of France and their closest comrades lies in the Musketeers' hands.
