The Alienist: Angel Of Darkness returns to TNT

The Alienist: Angel Of Darkness returns for a second season on TNT on Sunday 19th July. The series will roll out as a four week event, with two episodes airing every Sunday through August 9th. Stuart Carolan acts as showrunner, writer and executive producer on the eight episode season. David Caffrey directs five episodes and also acts as an executive producer.


An unflinching, gripping, turn-of-the-century murder mystery that spotlights both New York's wealthy elite and the struggling underbelly of the city's 'gilded age'. In The Alienist: Angel Of Darkness, Sara (Dakota Fanning) has opened her own private detective agency. She reunites with Dr Kreizler (Daniel Bruhl), the formidable alienist and John Moore (Luke Evans), now a NY Times reporter to find the kidnapped daughter of the Spanish Consular.

The first series of The Alienist, with episodes written by Hossein Amini, garnered worldwide acclaim and has received a raft of strong reviews from publications.
