The CW to Do an Encore of TNT’s ‘The Librarians’
“The Librarians” will start its run on Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014, at 8:00 p.m. on TNT. The show will have a two-hour premiere, which The CW will also rebroadcast on Friday, Dec. 12, 2014. Read on for more about this news story.
As published on SpoilerTV via a press release from The CW, the network will be airing the two-hour premiere of the adventure drama series “The Librarians.” It will be aired following its original debut on the cable channel TNT. The episodes that will air include "And the Crown of King Arthur"/"And the Sword in the Stone." Both episodes will will run from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
The show stars Noah Wylie, who reprises his role as Flynn Carsen. The character was first introduced in “The Librarian” TV movies, which has aired on TNT in the previous years. Wylie will be supported by Rebecca Romjin as Eve Baird, Christian Kane as Jake Stone, Lindy Booth as Cassandra, John Kim as Ezekiel Jones and John Larroquette as Jenkins.
“The Librarians” follows the story Carsen, whose main job is to be the keeper of secret artifacts that are very significant to the world. In this inception of the ten episode series, Carsen recruits a band of skilled men and women to aid him in his duties as the task has become too grand and overwhelming. Overseeing the new breed of Librarians will be Jenkins, who has been featured in the TV movie as well. He will be training Eve, Jake, Cassandra and Jones with the job that Carsen has been doing for the last ten years.
“The Librarians" is created and produced by Dean Devlin and John Rogers, whose past TV show, “Leverage,” also ran on TNT.
In a feature published on Star Pulse, Rogers describes his series as fun to watch, with “popcorn candy frothiness” that could rival genre TV. The show has shades of “Indiana Jones” to it but also delves on strong women characters as well. The feature on Star Pulse also had exclusive interviews of some of the actors, which was done during the New York Comic Con event back in the summer.
Catch "The Librarians" when it premieres on TNT this coming Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014, at 8:00 p.m. If you’d like to watch the episodes again, you can also catch the encore presentation on The CW on Friday, Dec. 12, 2014, also at 8:00 p.m.
