TV News: THE LIBRARIAN to Return as a TV Series?

Six years after the airing of the third and final movie in THE LIBRARIAN franchise, THE CURSE OF THE JUDAS CHALICE, TNT are said to be developing the project as a ten episode series.

Original producer Dean Devlin will return along with the movies’ star Noah Wyle, who is in early talks to serve as an executive producer. Although Wyle played the lead role of Flynn Carsen, his starring role in TNT’s hit FALLING SKIES prohibits his return to world of THE LIBRARIAN. However it is hoped that Wyle’s schedule would allow him to appear in the feature length premiere as well as the season’s final two episodes.

So with the original star potentially taking on an executive producer role and hopefully appearing in a couple of episodes, the proposed series’ dynamic will be slightly different from the original TV movie trilogy. Instead the show is tentatively called THE LIBRARIANS and will feature a group of younger men and women hoping to become Flynn’s successor as the protector of secret artefacts. It’s also rumoured that movie regulars Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin will reprise their roles.

If all goes to plan then filming in Oregon could begin in April with the series premiering later this year. They better not leave it too long as there’s a fine for late returns!
