'The Alienist' Gets a Season 2 Trailer Ahead of July Premiere!

The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, the second season of the hit TNT series, is premiering this summer and the official trailer was just released!

Daniel Bruhl, Dakota Fanning, and Luke Evans reprise their roles in the new season of the series, which will premiere on July 26.

The Alienist: Angel of Darkness will take the time slot of the new series Snowpiercer, which will have its season finale one week earlier.

The first season followed Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Brühl), a brilliant and obsessive “alienist” in the controversial new field of treating mental pathologies. In the first season, Dr. Kreizler was relentless in his pursuit of a never-before-seen ritualistic killer murdering young boys. He was joined by newspaper illustrator John Moore (Evans) and Sara Howard (Fanning), an ambitious secretary determined to become the city’s first female police detective.

In The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, Sara has opened her own private detective agency and is leading the charge on a brand-new case. She reunites with Dr. Kreizler, the formidable alienist, and John Moore, now a New York Times reporter, to find Ana Linares, the kidnapped infant daughter of the Spanish Consular. Their investigation leads them down a sinister path of murder and deceit, heading towards a dangerous and elusive killer. As in The Alienist, the series shines a light on the provocative issues of the era – the corruption of institutions, income inequality, yellow press sensationalism, and the role of women in society – themes that still resonate today.

Earlier this year, Luke went Instagram official with his hot boyfriend!
