Daniel Bruhl’s darknessis spreading earlier than expected…
TNThas moved up the season premiere of The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, starring the 42-year-old half-Spanish actor, to Sunday, July 19.
Two episodes will air back to back that day, starting at 9:00 pm ET/PT. The Emmy-nominated psychological thriller will then continue as a four week event with two episodes airing every Sunday thereafter at 9:00 pm ET/PT with the season runs through August 9.
The move eliminates the one week gap that had existed after the end of TNT’s current prestige series, Snowpiercer, which is set to wrap up with a two-hour finale airs on Sunday, July 12 at 9:00 pm ET/PT.
Season 2 is based on best-selling author Caleb Carr’s novel The Angel of Darkness, and The Alienist’s lead cast Brühl, Luke Evans and Dakota Fanning will return.
The series is an unflinching, gripping, turn-of-the-century murder mystery that spotlights both New York’s wealthy elite and the struggling underbelly of the city’s “Gilded Age.”
In The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, Sara (Fanning) has opened her own private detective agency and is leading the charge on a brand-new case. She reunites with Dr. Kreizler (Brühl), the formidable alienist, and John Moore (Evans), now a New York Times reporter, to find Ana Linares, the kidnapped infant daughter of the Spanish Consular.
Their investigation leads them down a sinister path of murder and deceit, heading towards a dangerous and elusive killer. As in The Alienist, 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 –- themes that still resonate today.
The Alienistlaunched as 2018’s number one new cable series, having reached more than 50 million people across multiple platforms. It also earned six Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Limited Series, and two Golden Globe nominations, including Best Television Limited Series.
The Alienist: Angel of Darknessis produced by Paramount Television Studios.

Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden announced the annual selections, which were chosen based on cultural, historic and aesthetic importance to the nation’s film heritage and guarantees the film will be preserved under the National Film Preservation Act. The films must be at least 10 years old.
“The National Film Registry has become an important record of American history, culture and creativity,” said Hayden. “Unlike many other honors, the registry is not restricted to a time, place or genre. It encompasses 130 years of the full American cinematic experience — a virtual Olympiad of motion pictures. With the support of Congress, the studios and other archives, we are ensuring that the nation’s cinematic history will be around for generations to come.”
The 2019 selection brings the number of films in the registry to 775 and spans a century of filmmaking, from 1903 to 2003.
Jacqueline Stewart, chair of the National Film Preservation Board’s task force on diversity, equity and inclusion, commented, “With this year’s National Film Registry selections, Dr, Hayden recognizes the importance of amplifying cinematic voices and stories that have been marginalized for far too long. I look forward to continuing research and dialogue with the Librarian, board members, film communities and the American public to ensure that the registry reflects the full spectrum of our society.”
