The cast will return for 'The Angel of Darkness'.
August 16, 2018
Five months after limited series The Alienist concluded its run, TNT has ordered another chapter to continue the story. Titled The Angel of Darkness, the sequel will be based on the follow-up novel of the same name by author Caleb Carr.
Set in 1896 New York, The Alienist followed a criminal psychologist and a newspaper illustrator who are tasked by the city's newly-appointed police commissioner to investigate a string of gruesome murders in secret. Its 10-episode run fared well for the cable network, garnering solid ratings and picking up multiple Emmy Award nominations.
The three series leads, Daniel Bruhl, Luke Evans, and Dakota Fanning, will all be returning for The Angel of Darkness, which will likely premiere in early 2019.

Great news The Alienist has a sequel coming. The acting was excellent, as was the script & direction.
However, all those really dark sets made the viewing really tedious. But, I did enjoy the 1st story, anyway, & looking forward to the next one. Really hope this series continues beyond the 2nd season.

That is excellent news. "The Alienist" was well written and acted and with the news that the three leads are all returning for the sequel I'm sure it will be as well received.

I have been a fan of Caleb Carr's novels ever since "The Alienist." I have always been drawn to novels set in turn-of-the-century Manhattan, and when I saw the theme of "The Alienist" was about the very first serial killer in that area, I was hooked!
Of course, when I heard about the mini-series, based on the novel of the same name, my immediate thought was that I hope they would also do one for "The Angel of Darkness," which is the sequel of "The Alienist."
I look forward to watching both, after they have been initially released, and then, rereading the novels a second time.
