The Librarians is an American fantasy adventure television series based on the television film series The Librarian which follows four new characters who work for The Library and do battle with the Serpent Brotherhood, a cult led by the mysterious, immortal Dulaque.
Returning to the universe of TNT's hit movie franchise The Librarian, this series centres on an ancient organisation hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around.
This group solves impossible mysteries, fights supernatural threats and recovers powerful artifacts, including the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny and Excalibur.
For the past 10 years, Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) has served as the Librarian, but the job has become more than one person can handle.
To aid him in his duties, the Library has recruited four people from around the world, including Eve Baird (Rebecca Romijn), a highly skilled counter-terrorism agent who is responsible for protecting the group and keeping them all alive; Jake Stone (Christian Kane), an Oklahoma oil worker with an IQ of 190 and an encyclopedic knowledge of art history; Cassandra (Lindy Booth), a quirky young woman with the special gift of auditory and sensory hallucinations linked to memory retrieval, known as synesthesia; and Ezekiel Jones (John Kim), a master of new technologies and aficionado of old classic crimes who enjoys playing the role of international man of mystery.
Overseeing the new team of Librarians is the somewhat cantankerous Jenkins (John Larroquette), an expert in ancient lore who has been working out of the Library's branch office for longer than anyone knows.
The Librarians was written and directed by Dean Devlin.
The first two episodes of the series aired a week apart on e.tv, after which the show began airing at 20h30 on weekdays, beginning with Episode 3 on Tuesday 8 December, 2020.
