The CW announced today that a new entry in the 'Librarians' franchise is heading to the network in 2024. Titled 'The Librarians: The Next Chapter,' the series is a spinoff of TNT's The Librarians, which debuted in 2014 and ran for four seasons until being cancelled in 2018.

The 2014 adventure drama was an expansion of the hit movie franchise, following an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library whose members dedicate their lives to protecting the world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around.

The new series will focus on a Librarian from the past, who time traveled to the present where he finds himself stuck. When he returns to his castle, which is now a museum, he inadvertently releases magic across the continent. He is given a new team of Librarians to help clean up the mess he made.
