Season 2 of The Alienist has concluded on TNT in the US with this season dubbed as ‘The Alienist: Angel of Darkness‘ and will likely be heading to Netflix around the world with a few notable exceptions. Here’s the official Netflix release schedule for The Alienist season 2.
TNT will air Alienist Season 2 two years after the first season aired. It aired July 19, 2020. It will see the return of Daniel Brühl as Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, Luke Evans as John Moore and Dakota Fanning as Sara Howard.
The second Caleb Carr novel, The Angel of Darkness will be adapted for the series.
The Alienist season 1 isn’t on Netflix in the US and you can pretty much rule out the possibility that it will be added given the series has just recently found a new streaming home.
The good news is that a streaming home has been set in the US but obviously it’s not Netflix. The first season can be viewed on HBO Max's brand-new streaming service. This probably shouldn’t come as a huge surprise given TNT is owned by WarnerMedia and so is HBO Max.
In the very near future, HBO Max will become the streaming destination for The Alienist.
According to Unogs, almost all regions outside the United States carries season 1 The Alienist where it’s also branded as a Netflix Original. In a similar arrangement to The Alienist's, Netflix acquired Snowpiercer from TNT.
After the conclusion of the original season, countries such as Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom are now receiving The Alienist. Netflix doesn't receive weekly episodes of The Alienist.
The second season of Netflix's second season will be available on international Netflix on October 22, 2020, after a lengthy wait.
