TNT is extending the run of The Librarians. The Turner owned cable network has picked up the drama series for a ten episode fourth season, which is expected to air later this year.
The official pick up for season four comes less than 48 hours after the season three finale aired on TNT. Per the network, the series has been averaging a multi-platform audience of 5.4 million viewers. The Librarians is produced by Electric Entertainment, with executive producers Dean Devlin, Marc Roskin and Noah Wyle.
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 cast includes Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, John Larroquette, Lindy Booth, John Harlan Kim and Noah Wyle, the latter of whom reprises his role from the original trilogy of TV movies. The series airs on this side of the pond on Syfy UK.
At TNT, The Librarians joins a healthy slate of returning dramas. The network only last week picked up their flagship series Major Crimes for a 13 episode sixth season and new entry Good Behavior, starring Michelle Dockery, for a 10 episode second season. They also previously renewed summer dramas The Last Ship and Animal Kingdom. New entries on tap for later this year include nail salon dramedy Claws, M. Night Shyamalan’s Tales From The Crypt and Shakespeare drama Will.
