TNT has moved up the season premiere of “The Alienist: Angel of Darkness” to Sunday, July 19. Two episodes will air back to back that Sunday, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series will continue as a four-week event with two episodes airing every Sunday thereafter at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The season runs through August 9.


The Alienist Takes place in 1896 New York, the series focuses on two men tasked (by Teddy Roosevelt!) with solving grisly serial murders, who are aided by a police secretary along the way.

The title comes from the name of those who, in that Gilded Era, studied the mentally ill, who are considered “alienated” from their own nature. Daniel Brühl stars as Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a criminal psychologist (and alienist), who works with Luke Evans‘ newspaper illustrator John Moore. Dakota Fanning is that intrepid secretary who assists them in their quest to find this killer of young boy prostitutes, and who seems to form a romantic attachment with Moore (or rather, he becomes attached to her per the trailer).


The series doesn’t have a premiere date yet but is currently shooting in Hungary.

Dakota Fanning was at a Press Conference for Television Series, “The Alienist” on April 8th, 2017 (last month) in Budapest, Hungary. We’ve added 26 high-quality images to the gallery.
