“Action-packed with more than a little history and mythology thrown in, THE LIBRARIANS is one of those rare and wonderful shows that isn't out to change the television landscape, just make it a little more fun.” – LA TimesTORONTO (November 11, 2016) – The fantastical world of THE LIBRARIANS returns with more magic tricks and tongue-in-cheek humour when Season 3 kicks off Sundays at 8 p.m. ET beginning November 20, exclusively on Space. Based on the hit movie franchise The Librarian, the series centres on an ancient organization tasked with protecting the everyday world from the unseen magical realm that exists around it. Seasons 1-2 of THE LIBRARIANS are available now exclusively on CraveTV™.
The 10-episode, one-hour action-packed series brings Eve Baird (Rebecca Romijn, X-Men), Jacob Stone (Christian Kane, LEVERAGE), Cassandra, played by Canadian actor Lindy Booth (Dawn of the Dead), and Ezekiel Jones (John Kim, NEIGHBORS), back to the job of guarding the world’s mystical treasures. Also returning to the fold is Jenkins (John Larroquette, THE BRINK), their reluctant caretaker, and Noah Wyle (FALLING SKIES) in the recurring role of Flynn Carsen, the original Librarian from The Librarian movie trilogy.
Throughout its run, Season 2 of THE LIBRARIANS made Space the most-watched entertainment specialty network in its Sundays at 8 p.m. ET timeslot. With an average audience of 426,000 viewers, it was the #3 program on Space among total viewers, and ranked among the Top 20 programs on Canadian entertainment specialty television.
Season 3 finds the team fighting a war on two fronts. First, Apep, the Egyptian God of Chaos, is released from a museum in Egypt and is revealed to be bent on freeing pure evil into the world to create a chaotic apocalypse. The Librarians must stop him, but must do so while also avoiding the new black-ops government agency D.O.S.A. (the Department of Statistical Anomalies). D.O.S.A.’s investigation of magic has the agency – and their determined leader, General Cynthia Rockwell – believing the Librarians are home-grown terrorists.
In the Season 3 premiere, "And the Rise of Chaos" (Sunday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. ET), the Egyptian God of Chaos inhabits a human body and attempts to release pure evil into the world, thus beginning the final battle of Good vs. Evil. In order to stop him, the Librarians must decipher a series of clues within a science museum, including a mysterious warning spoken by exhibit mannequins that have come to life.
