Coming as no surprise, TNT announced today that The Librarians will be coming back for a fourth season. That show just wrapped up is third year and performed about even with its second season as far as its linear viewing, which is actually quite an accomplishment in the current ratings-challenged environment. It also has also seen decent delayed-viewing gains and it has a loyal and active fanbase which keeps it trending on the social nets. I have been predicting since last November that the show would get renewed by TNT because of its ratings performance and because it had made it to the cable third year threshold. And expect this one to stick around through at least a fifth season since that has been the trend we have been seeing among cable shows that make it to a third year.
The Librarians TV series is a continuation of the TV movie franchise about an organization that catalogs and protects artifacts of great power from those who would misuse them, and it stars Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth, John Harlan Kim, and John Larroquette. The network has not announced the episode count for the show’s fourth season, but expect it to be around ten and also expect it to return in late Fall of 2017.
There are still quite a number of shows awaiting word on their fate, including Spring and Summer entries from last year like Chiller‘s Slasher and FOX’s Wayward Pines.
