On TNT’s fantasy adventure series The Librarians, the team will face off with Santa’s brother, the Patron Saint of Thieves; battle a casino that steals luck and, the wake of Charlene’s passing, attempt to keep The Library grounded to humanity.
So, same old, same old.
The Librarians return with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, December 20th (8/7C).
TNT has turned the page to Chapter Two, ordering another season of magical dramedy series The Librarians. The fantasy series proved to be one of the hottest shows on cable last season, pulling in an audience approaching 11.4 million each week.
The Librarians’ second season will, once again, be ten episodes and will premiere later this year. For more, follow the jump.
TNT has resurrected The Library and Librarian Flynn Carsen. Thankfully, the two-hour series premiere – The Librarians and The Crown of King Arthur/The Librarians and The Sword in the Stone –hew closer to the delightfully odd first TNT movie, The Librarian: Quest for the Spear than its sequels in terms of quality. If the first two episodes are a fair sampling, then The Librarians (TNT, Sundays, 8/7C) is deliciously sly and deliriously fun.
TNT has greenlit the sequel series to their hit Librarian movie trilogy, The Librarians. Noah Wyle is back as Flynn Carsen, but now the job is just too big for any one person, so he’s recruiting help – and Wyle is more of a recurring guest star than the lead. The cast is a bit of an all-star aggregation – Christian Kane from Leverage, Kick-Ass 2’s Lindy Booth, John Kim of Neighbors and The Pacific and the great John Larroquette as The Library’s reluctant caretaker. Joining Wyle in recurring roles are returnees Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin and Orphan Black’s Matt Frewer will also recur.
Check out the press release for more details. The Librarians is being produced with plans to launch in late 2014.
TNT’s King & Maxwell (Mondays, 10/9C) is created by Shane Brennan (NCIS: Los Angeles) and based on a series of bestselling novels by David Baldacci. With those bloodlines – and TNT’s declaration that ‘We know drama’ – you would figure that this should be something special. Well, I haven’t read the books, but the series feels very – no, make that too familiar.
As Chuck [NBC, Fridays, 8/7C] works toward its series finale, we’ve been treated to some of the show’s best episodes and some terrific guest stars [Carrie-Anne Moss and Danny Pudi, last week].
This week, in Chuck vs. The Curse, Rebecca Romjin guests as a villain with a penchant for torture – and to round out ‘the tallest cast on television!’ She talk about the ep following the jump and series stars Zachary Levi [Chuck] and Ryan McPartlin [Captain Awesome] talk about the ep and the bigger picture of which it is but a part.
Eastwick [ABC, Wednesdays, 10/9C] is the third attempt to adapt John Updike’s most controversial novel – The Witches of Eastwick –into some form of motion picture. The film was financially successful, but received mixed reviews; an earlier attempt at a TV series was cancelled early in its run. Eastwick, the latest version, was created for television by Maggie Friedman, and takes a much less overt path than the others.
