TNT found television-movie success with its Noah Wyle-starring “The Librarian” trilogy from 2004-2008, and now the cable network is reviving the franchise as a 10-episode weekly series in the form of “The Librarians.” In a new trailer for the upcoming fantasy adventure series, Wyle’s Flynn Carsen assembles a new team of librarians to protect the world from unspeakable evil.
The series will feature franchise veterans Wyle, Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin opposite fresh faces such as Rebecca Romijn (returning to TNT after the cancellation of “King & Maxwell”), Christian Kane (“Leverage”), Lindy Booth (“Dawn of the Dead”), John Kim (“Neighbors”) and John Larroquette (“Deception”). Wyle also serves as an executive producer, though he’s not the star of the series like he was the movie. Expect the “E.R.” veteran to pop in and out of the series, leaving Romijn to handle lead duties.
Check out the trailer below, which mixes everything from “Indiana Jones” to “Game of Thrones” and “National Treasure.”
