Sarah Michelle Gellar,
In this period action series, Wilhelm ('William', several names are anglicized) Tell isn't just a father whose masterly archery saves his boy (Matthew)'s life but more of a Swiss Robin Hood in medieval times, before the Alpine country became the present stand-alone republican Helvetic Confederation, who stands up time and again against grim feudal oppression, as administered by Governor Hermann Gessler and other noble lords, who exploit and abuse the simple mountain villagers practically as serfs.

Hello I am surprised to see there are a TV movie and a TV series. The first one (Adventures of William Tell) is a TV movie from 1986. Then we have the TV series known as Crossbow (1987-1989). It's very rare not to see Tell and Gessler on the credits in Crossbow. Nor Horst. But they were there. Will Lyman as William Tell and Jeremy Clyde as Gov. Hermann Gessler were two great characters, two great actors.
I saw the TV series in Barcelona some years ago. I remember it was a great series. I don't remember a "end" for the series. Last episodes were very dark and confusing. I'm almost sure there was no last episode showing Gessler's death. More comments, please!
