TNT has renewed their newest drama series The Librarians for a 10 episode second season, set air later this year.
A follow up to the networks TV movie franchise, The Librarians centers on an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around.
The series is produced by Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment and stars Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, John Larroquette, Lindy Booth, John Kim, Bob Newhart, Jane Curtin, Matt Frewer and Noah Wyle, who reprises his role from the original TV movies. The executive producers are Dean Devlin, John Rogers, Marc Roskin and Noah Wyle.
The renewal, which comes more than a month after the show wrapped its 10 episode first season, comes after The Librarians closed out its run as basic cable’s #2 new series of 2014, behind fellow TNT series The Last Ship. TNT said that, across multiple platforms, new episodes of The Librarians were drawing an average audience of 11.4 million viewers.
With the second season order, TNT has now renewed every single one of the new scripted dramas they launched in 2014, after having previously handed out renewals to The Last Ship, Legends and Murder In The First. The network, now under new topper Kevin Reilly, recently renewed top rated drama Rizzoli & Isles, whilst cancelling Franklin & Bash and Perception.
