‘The Librarians’ Series in Production

*Note: This article has been updated from its original version.

Electric Entertainment and TNT have begun production on a 10-episode series, titled The Librarians, in Portland. Although the production was just a rumor for several months – fueled by Electric executive producer Dean Devlin posting photos on Twitter of sets being built in Oregon – TNT has officially confirmed that they have greenlit the series. The Librarian

The series will be an offshoot from TNT’s The Librarian original movie franchise, which starred Noah Wyle as Flynn Carsen, a librarian who protects a secret collection of artifacts. According to sources, the series would revolve around four young men and women who have been selected by Flynn to become his successors. Although Wyle currently works full time on another TNT series, Falling Skies, he will reprise his role as Carsen in at least a few episodes. Other castmembers include Rebecca Romijn, John Larroquette,  and Christian Kane (who also starred in Portland-shot TV series Leverage), as well as Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin, who will reprise their roles from the movie franchise.

The Librarians is being produced by Electric Entertainment, which also produced the three original movies—titled The Librarian: Quest for the Spear, The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines and The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice—as well as Leverage.

The series is set to air in late 2014.

Media Inc. will continue to report on this story as it develops.
