The turn-of-the-century crime thriller series The Alienist: Angel of Darkness, a follow-up to 2019’s The Alienist, is based on the award-winning 1994 novel by Caleb Carr.

The show Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl, Rush), a brilliant and obsessive New York City-based “alienist” in the controversial new field of treating mental pathologies, who holds the key to hunting down a never-before-seen ritualistic killer murdering young boys.

Daniel Bruhl is The Alienist

It is June 1897. A year has passed since Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a pioneer in forensic psychiatry, tracked down the brutal serial killer John Beecham with the help of a team of trusted companions and a revolutionary application of the principles of his discipline. Kreizler and his friends–high-living crime reporter John Schuyler Moore; indomitable, derringer-toting Sara Howard; the brilliant (and bickering) detective brothers Marcus and Lucius Isaacson; powerful and compassionate Cyrus Montrose; and Stevie Taggert, the boy Kreizler saved from a life of street crime–have returned to their former pursuits and tried to forget the horror of the Beecham case. But when the distraught wife of a Spanish diplomat begs Sara’s aid, the team reunites to help find her kidnapped infant daughter. It is a case fraught with danger since Spain and the United States are on the verge of war.

Along with Brühl, the show co-stars Luke Evans (The Girl on the Train) and Dakota Fanning (The Runaways), The Alienist truly offers the story of the emergence of the world’s most powerful city that will stop at nothing to bury its darkest secrets.
