THE ALIENIST was a hit for TNT — having been recently nominated for six Emmy awards — and so the specialty channel has ordered a new limited series, THE ANGEL OF DARKNESS, as a sequel. The new series is based on the book of the same name by Caleb Carr.
“We could not be prouder of THE ALIENIST’s outstanding, award-worthy performance and all of the work the incredible actors and crew put in to bring that story and time period to life,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. “Our audience fell in love with these multi-dimensional, timeless characters and the journey of their struggles living in complicated times. With this new story in TNT’s Suspense Collection, we will further immerse viewers into their world as they are confronted with a new enemy.”
THE ALIENIST’s lead cast including Daniel Brühl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning will return for The Angel of Darkness in an all-new storyline.
