examiner.com – Ready for more “Librarians” fun? Well, you should be, because on Thursday, Feb. 12, TNT announced that it has renewed the fantasy-adventure series for a second season.
“The Librarians” premiered in December and finished the year as basic cable’s #2 new series of 2014 (“The Last Ship” was #1), and its success has extended across the network’s multiple platforms. It averaged 11.4 million viewers each week through linear telecasts, DVR playback and VOD, digital and mobile viewing. It is produced by Electric Entertainment, with executive producers Dean Devlin, John Rogers, Mark Roskin and Noah Wyle.
The TNT series followed up on the hit movie franchise, starring Noah Wyle as Flynn Carsen, and he recurred throughout the first season. Season 1 also brought in a new team of Librarians in Training (Christian Kane, Lindy Booth and John Kim), their Guardian (Rebecca Romijn) and the caretaker (John Larroquette). The first season ended with Jenkins’ real identity of Galahad confirmed, the Librarians-in-training graduating and heading off on their own adventures (though the plan is to still team up every once in a while, which they did right off the bat) and Eve and Flynn finally having the chance to go on a date, but Librarian-style.
TNT has ordered 10 episodes for season 2, scheduled to air later this year. What season 2 will look like with the Librarians having graduated has yet to be seen, but hopefully there will be more Flynn Carsen. With “Falling Skies” airing its final season this summer, that may be possible.
“The Librarians” will be back for a second season on TNT.
