The Esquire Network dropped the trailer for its new series “Beowulf,” and it promises that there will be bloodshed.

Borrowing from the epic poem, the show tells the story of Beowulf after he defeats Grendel and the monster’s mother. The series stars Kieran Bew as Beowulf, William Hurt as Hrothgar and Joanne Whalley as Rheda.

Because the new season of “Game of Thrones” doesn’t premiere until April, “Beowulf” seems like a good way to fill that hole in your heart. (RELATED: That Wasn’t Lena Headey’s Body During Cersei’s Naked Walk Of Shame On ‘Game Of Thrones’)

It premieres January 23 on the Esquire network.
