Fans who have been waiting patiently for The Alienist sequel can rejoice because TNT has ordered The Angel of Darkness with the original cast returning to their respective roles. I don’t know about the actual premiere date, but I think the upcoming limited series will air sometime in 2019.

For those familiar with the book series by Caleb Carr, The Angel of Darkness is a follow-up to The Alienist and is the second book in the Kriezler series. Set in 1897, the new story showed Sara Howard (Dakota Fanning) working as a private investigator and reaching out to Kriezler (Daniel Brühl) to help investigate a kidnapping. Luke Evans will also return to The Angel of Darkness as John Moore.

The 10-episode long The Alienist premiered on TNT on January 21, 2018. It ended up being “2018’s top new cable series in 18-49, having reached more than 50 million people across multiple platforms.” The show has also earned six Emmy nominations.

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 Angel of Darkness is a co-production of Paramount Television and Turner’s Studio T with Eric Roth, Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin and Rosalie Swedlin and Cary Joji Fukunaga serving as executive producers.

You can go ahead and read my review of The Alienist. The show had a number of problematic themes and pacing issues, but I have to say I still enjoyed watching it. Here’s to hoping things change for the better in The Angel of Darkness.

Are you excited for The Alienist sequel? Let us know.
