Based on the cult-hit movie franchise, The Librarian, THE LIBRARIANS centres on an ancient organization tasked with protecting an unwitting world from a hidden, magical reality that exists around them. Rebecca Romijn (KING & MAXWELL) stars as Eve Baird, a highly skilled agent responsible for protecting the team of librarians, including a bookworm turned dashing swashbuckler and veteran librarian, Flynn Carsen, played by Noah Wyle (FALLING SKIES), a role reprised from The Librarian film series.
In the next episode of THE LIBRARIANS, “The Librarians and the Horns of a Dilemma” (Sunday, Dec. 14 at 8 p.m. ET), the Librarians' first solo mission hits a snag when Baird loses the others in a mysterious labyrinth that magically exists below the skyscraper of a modern corporation.
