The Librarians: “And the Dark Secret”
TNT, 8pm
Season Premiere!
Noah Wyle returns for seven of the 12 new episodes this season. The heroes embark on new, action-packed adventures, but their greatest challenge will come from within the Library itself.

Confronted with a dark mystery, every Librarian must ask themselves some tough questions: Is the Library itself good or evil? Can a Librarian ever live a “normal” life filled with love, friends and family?
