TNT Cancels Drama ‘The Librarians’

Series Creator Dean Devlin is in Search of a New Home

TNT has opted against a fifth season of “The Librarians,” but there could be some hope for fans of the drama. Series’ executive producer Dean Devlin unveiled the cancellation on Twitter, announcing that he will be launching an effort to find a new home for the fantasy-adventure drama.

Debuting on Dec. 7, 2014, “The Librarians,” which was spun-off from the movie franchise on TNT,  follows four people — Eve Baird (Rebecca Romijn), who is chosen by the Library to be the new Guardian, as well as Ezekiel (John Harlan Kim), Cassandra (Lindy Booth) and Jacob (Christian Kane), who were asked to apply to the Library to become The Librarian, but for some reason didn’t show up to the “auditions”. In their place, the current Librarian (Noah Wylie) is searching for the Library (which is lost in time and space during the pilot). The four become a new team of Librarians in order to solve impossible mysteries, recover powerful artifacts, and fight against supernatural threats, especially the forces of the Serpent Brotherhood, led by the mysterious immortal Dulaque (Matt Frewer).

The fourth season finale — which is now the TNT series finale — aired Feb. 7.
