A sequel to the TNT historical crime series The Alienist is in the works.
The Alienist is based off the novel by Caleb Carr and follows the investigation into a string of murders in 19th century New York City.
The series starred Daniel Bruhl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning, all of which are set to come back for the sequel season.
Angel of Darkness will be based on the follow-up novel from the same writer, which revolves around the kidnapped daughter of a Spanish ambassador.
The Alienist was a big hit for small TV channel TNT, with the series earning 6 Emmy nominations.
Executive vice president of the network, Sarah Aubrey, said that TNT was proud to have a show that is highly acclaimed.
“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.
“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 is exclusive to Netflix in the UK, meaning you’ll be able to watch Angel of Darkness there when it releases next year.
