The core cast of The Alienist return for the sequel series, entitled The Angel Of Darkness

A premiere date for the second season of The Alienist has finally been confirmed by Netflix UK. You’ll be able to start streaming it on Thursday October 22nd!

Daniel Bruhl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning all reprised their roles for TNT’s follow-up series, 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.

See a trailer for the second season below, which is 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.”
