It’s time to rejoice! The fantastic legend of Sinbad the sailor is coming back to life this year.
Although this new version, produced by SKY, has nothing to do with our beloved “Advenures of Sinbad”, this new tv show, called simply “Sinbad” will be full of suprises, with new adventures, new baddies, new monsters, and of course, new crew.
The lead role will be played by an unknown, but soon to be famous, actor named Elliot Knight.
The 12-part series opens with Sinbad banished from his homeland of Basra and cast out to sea on The Providence following the death of his much-loved brother. Now Sinbad must embark on an epic quest to rid himself of the curse placed on him by his own grandmother (Janet Suzman), and embrace his new destiny.
On board The Providence, an intriguing band of travellers are thrown together, including:
-Taciturn Norwegian sailor Gunnar (Elliot Cowan)
-Lithe jewel-thief Rina (Marama Corlett)
-haughty Nala (Estella Daniels).
-Ship's cerebral doctor Anwar (Dimitri Leonidas).
For the LOST fans, you’ll be able to discover Naveen Andrews playing Lord Akbari, one of the main baddies, along with Orla Brady, playing Taryn, a powerful mage.

Sinbad will be aired in July on SKY1, and be sure we’ll be here to give you our reaction to the first episode.
