The Scarlet Pimpernel

Show Summary

France, 1793. The terror of the French Revolution is at its height. Citizen Robespierre, along with his ruthless henchman Chauvellin, keep the tumbrels busy carrying the innocent to the guillotine. But there is one man who dares to defy the revolutionaries: The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Richard E. Grant stars as the foppish English aristocrat Sir Percy Blakeney who has a secret identity as the daring and swashbuckling Scarlet Pimpernel, rescuing noblemen from the clutches of the guillotine during the height of the French Revolution.

Based on the novel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy.

Unlike the first season, which aired on Sundays at 8PM, the second season aired on Wednesdays at 8:30PM.
