When does Atlantis start on the BBC?

The new BBC TV series Atlantis will begin airing in the autumn of 2013. As Telly Chat originally predicted, the series start date has now been set for Saturday the 28th of September on BBC One and BBC One HD.

The start time for episode 1, ‘The Earth Bull’ will be 8:25 PM.

The brand new drama which will feature 13 episodes is created by Howard Overman along with ‘Merlin’ creators Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps.

The fantasy TV series will follow the life of Jason within the ancient Greek island of Atlantis.

Thus far this very short ‘The Legend Begins’ BBC trailer is giving away very little about the new up-coming series:
