The core cast of The Alienist return for a sequel series entitled The Angel Of Darkness…
Daniel Bruhl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning have all reprised their roles for TNT’s follow-up series to The Alienist, based on Caleb Carr’s The Angel Of Darkness. TNT initially announced the project as a one-off limited series, but the network was so chuffed with the show’s success that plans were soon in motion to bring it back.
Now, a trailer has arrived, and it’s jam-packed with action:
And here’s a synopsis:
“A year has passed since Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a pioneer in forensic psychiatry, tracked down the brutal serial killer John Beecham with the help of a team of trusted companions and a revolutionary application of the principles of his discipline. Kreizler and his friends—high-living crime reporter John Schuyler Moore; indomitable, derringer-toting Sara Howard; the brilliant (and bickering) detective brothers Marcus and Lucius Isaacson; powerful and compassionate Cyrus Montrose; and Stevie Taggert, the boy Kreizler saved from a life of street crime—have returned to their former pursuits and tried to forget the horror of the Beecham case.
“But when the distraught wife of a Spanish diplomat begs Sara’s aid, the team reunites to help find her kidnapped infant daughter. It is a case fraught with danger, since Spain and the United States are on the verge of war. Their investigation leads the team to a shocking suspect: a woman who appears to the world to be a heroic nurse and a loving mother, but who may in reality be a ruthless murderer of children.”
TNT will begin airing season 2 on July 26th. It’s still unclear if Netflix UK intends to stream The Angel Of Darkness here, but we’ll keep you updated.
