The period drama will take over the Friday night 'Spartacus’ time slot.

Camelot, the Starz network's retelling of the classic medieval tale of King Arthur, will premiere April 1 at 10 p.m.

The 10-part series will take the Friday night spot of Spartacus: Blood and Sand and features an ensemble cast which includes Joseph Fiennes as the magician Merlin and Jamie Campbell Bower as a reckless Arthur.

Eva Green will make her television debut as the darkly powerful Morgan.  The character-driven series also features Tamsin Egerton (Guinevere), Claire Forlani (Igraine) and Peter Mooney (Kay).  

Camelot is an international co-production between Irish company Octagon and Canadian outfit Take 5, developed in association with the U.K.'s Ecosse Films.
