Gunpowder season 2 release date - Completed.
In 1605, the religious and political unrest in England continues to ebb. Since Henry VIII founded the Anglican Church, there has been a cold war between Protestants and Catholics. Under the Protestant King James I and his minister Robert Cecil (Mark Gatiss) worsened the situation of Catholics. The noble Robert Catesby (Kit Harington) from the province had by his adherence to his faith his fortune, his reputation and thus also lost mental health.
It gathers around co-conspirators to hammer out an ambitious plan: create several tons of gunpowder into the Parliament building and set it on fire to open the parliamentary season - killing the entire House of Lords and the royal family. While Jesuit Father Garnet (Peter Mullan) reminds Catesby of his peace, his clever cousin Anne Vaux (Liv Tyler) suspects his plan and fears the revenge of the Protestants on all Catholics.
