If you're looking for your light and funny entertainment right now—perhaps something to take your mind off the ongoing coronavirus pandemic—The Alienist: Angel of Darkness might not be the show for you. It's dark, and often gruesome.

But if the idea of a period drama-turned-psychological thriller, with beautiful costumes and gory crime scenes intrigues you, it would make the perfect quarantine binge-watch.

The follow-up to season one of The Alienist premieres later this summer, and reunites investigators Sara Howard (played be Dakota Fanning), John Moore (Luke Evans), and the show's titular Alienist—that's an old-school term for a psychologist—Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl) in New York City in the late 1890s as they seek try to find the Spanish Consular's kidnapped baby girl.
