What is "The Alienist: Angel of Darkness" about?
"The Alienist" premiered in 2018 as a 10-episode period drama on TNT. The show was based on a 1994 crime novel of the same name, written by Caleb Carr.
"The Alienist: Angel of Darkness" picks up about a year after the events of "The Alienist." After opening her own detective agency, Sara Howards gets involved in the case of a missing child. She reunites with New York Times crime reporter John Moore, and alienist (criminal psychologist) Dr. Laszlo Kreizler in an effort to help a mother has been accused of killing her child. The chase for the true culprit brings Sara, Laszlo, and John into the path of a serial killer.
Showrunner Stuart Carolan told TV Insider, "Tonally, this year is a sense of something like Rosemary's Baby. There's horror for sure, but there's also a lot of paranoia and strangeness."
Here's the official synopsis from TNT: "Having opened her private detective agency, Sara (Dakota Fanning) reunites with Dr. Kreizler (Daniel Brühl), the formidable alienist, and John Moore (Luke Evans), now a New York Times reporter, to find the Spanish Consular's kidnapped infant daughter. Their investigation leads them down a sinister path of murder and deceit, heading towards a dangerous and elusive killer. The series shines a light on the provocative issues of the era – the corruption of institutions, income inequality, yellow press sensationalism, and the role of women in society."
