TNT networks came forward with The Alienist in 2018. The show is a historical drama that revolves around a hot team that solves crimes. The timeline of the show takes us back to the 1890s.

The first season aired in January 2018. The series is completely based on a novel with the same title by Caleb Carr.

Will the Alienist Come Back for A Third Season of The Sequel?

As TNT released the second season just this year, the audience is caught up with the same. The second season came out in the month of July this year and most probably end soon. This makes the fans curious to know if there is going to be any further season to look forward to.

In the second season, Dr. Laszlo Kreizler is seen solving new mysteries. At present, there have been no announcements about the series returning for a third season yet.

Looking at the cast and the fans of the show, it seems like the show could be getting renewed for a third go. Recently in an interview with Luke Evans who plays John Moore on the show said that he loves his character and wants to explore more. He said that the series’ base storyline is such that it has the capacity to come up with more.

Luke said that to come up with more content is not hard as there could be more crimes, more sins, new mysteries, new enemies, some surprises and plot twists. He said that if the show were to get back for the third season it would be great, and he loves to play John.

Are we Getting A Third Season & Who Would Star in It?

As mentioned earlier there is yet to be confirmation or announcement regarding the season 3 of any sort. However, looking at the first two seasons we can say that the main lead cast will remain the same.

Although if the timeline of the show has any sort of change, we may not witness the old characters. As Caleb Carr has released his third book named “Surrender” which has the timeline of 2016, nothing can be said about the show. There could be a few changes that are being anticipated for the third season.

The following are the lead the actors:

  • Daniel Brühl
  • Dakota Fanning
  • Q’orianka Kilcher
  • Luke Evans
  • Douglas Smith
  • Brian Geraghty
  • Matt Lintz
  • Robert Ray Wisdom
  • Matthew Shear
  • Rosy McEwen
  • Melanie Field

Showrunner’s Say on the Third Season

The Showrunner for The Alienist is Stuart Carolan. He said that as Caleb’s new book revolves in 2016, for the show to have the same characters is not possible if they follow the novel.

However, if they wait for Caleb to write a book based on these characters something could be done. He added, fans will have to be patient and can anticipate what could be next in the third season.
