The popular TNT series, The Librarians is coming to comic book for in a new series from Dynamite Entertainment.
Based on TNT’s hit movie franchise of the same name, The Librarians centers on an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library, dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around. Rebecca Romijn (X-Men), Christian Kane (TNT’s Leverage, Angel), Lindy Booth (Dawn of the Dead, The Philanthropist) and John Harlan Kim (Neighbors, The Pacific) star in the series as the newest protectors of the world’s mystical treasures, with Emmy® winner John Larroquette (Night Court, Deception) as their reluctant caretaker. Noah Wyle, who originated the role of Flynn Carsen, one of the longest-surviving librarians in the mythology created in TNT’s hit movie trilogy, has recurred throughout the series and continues to serve as an executive producer.
Can you believe the show is coming back for a fourth season? Probably why Dynamite is so interested in this property for comics.
“I was hooked on this exciting series from the first TNT movie,” says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. “Noah Wyle’s character recalls everything I loved about Indiana Jones, and the cast of the series is phenomenal. The cast dynamics and premise are perfect for comic books, and I am thrilled that Dynamite Entertainment will have the opportunity to expand on this rich world in a series certain to reward longtime fans and newcomers alike!”
No news on a release date, but it wouldn’t surprise me if there was a tie to the fourth season premiere later this year.
