‘The Librarians’ Has Been Cancelled After 4 Seasons
Some sad news for fans of ‘The Librarians‘. US network TNT has decided not to pick up the show for a 5th season.
Based on the ‘The Librarian’ tv movies, the series centred on an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around. The show starred Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth, John Harlan Kim and John Larroquette as the group chosen to solve impossible mysteries, fights supernatural threats and recovers powerful artefacts, including the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Destiny and Excalibur.
Exec producer Dean Devlin tweeted out last night:
Just got the official call. TNT has cancelled #TheLibrarians – I will immediately begin the process of trying to move the show elsewhere. Please keep your fingers crossed for us!

So it is possible the series isn’t dead for good, although moving your cancelled show to a new network is usually a tricky prospect.
TNT had some major management changes last year which set the network down the path of seeking out darker, edgier dramas, and saw many of its shows from the old regime were cancelled. ‘The Last Ship’ is the only real holdout from the old guard at the moment, but it’s largely believed it’s 5th Season will also be it’s last as well.
Noah Wyle, who starred as the titular Librarian in the original movies and had a recurring role in the series has recently taken a part in upcoming CBS pilot ‘Red Line’. Wyle also exec produced, wrote and directed a number of episodes of ‘The Librarians’.
The general consensus among fans seems to be that Season 4 of ‘The Librarians’ did wrap up reasonably well, although there were a number of possible plot threads which could be picked up if Devlin does manage to find the show a new home. We will let you know if anything comes of his attempt to shop the series around, but as of right now, ‘The Librarians‘, which aired on Syfy in the UK, is cancelled.
