Katey Sagal and Stephen Moyer are set to star in a new FX Series.

Now that Sons of Anarchy and True Blood are over, fans have been a little bummed. However, this new FX series may be just what fans need to cheer up.

SOA's Katey Sagal and True Blood's Moyer are set to costar in the period drama The Bastard Executioner, the new series by SOA creator and Sagal's husband Kurt Sutter.

The plot follows a warrior knight, played by Australian newcomer Lee Jones, who finds himself discouraged from the savagery of war but is forced to fight once again for King Edward I.

Moyer will play "a street-smart and noble savvy, and one of Ventris' former marshals in the army who now, serves as his chamberlain, chancellor and justiciar - and friend and drinking mate," Variety reported.

Katey Sagal will play Annora of the Alders, described as "prescient, mystical and beautiful. She offers predictions, cures and potions," according to Variety.

The Bastard Executioner also stars Sutter, Flora Spencer-Longhurst, Sam Spruell, Darren Evans, Danny Sapani, Timothy V. Murphy, Sarah White and Sarah Sweeny.

Another FX regular Matthew Rhys of The Americans will guest star on the series.

Paris Barclay will direct the pilot and produce alongside Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.

Shooting is set to begin March 19 in Wales.
