The Alienist team are getting back together for season 2, titled Angel of Darkness.

Reuniting for a new case, the trio are drawn into the investigation of a mysterious killer after trying to find the kidnapped infant daughter of the Spanish Consular.

As they try to uncover the truth, the series weaves in themes of systemic corruption, inequality and female roles in society.

Airing in the US earlier this year, the series is now making its way over the UK thanks to Netflix, and we can finally get caught up on the 19th century investigative team.

But this is the definition of an all-star cast, with the leading squad all familiar faces you’re bound to have seen before.

If you can’t quite put a finger on it, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Daniel Bruhl – Laszlo Kreizler

The Alienist himself (a turn-of-the-19th-century psychiatrist) Laszlo Kreizler is played by Daniel Bruhl.

Initially launching his career in 1995 German series Verbotene Liebe, he has since become prominent in film, rather than television.

He has critically acclaimed roles in shows including Good Bye Lenin, Inglourious Basterds, The Fifth Estate and The Cloverfield Paradox.

Most notably, he plays Zemo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – a man whose quest for vengeance managed to tear apart the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War.

He’s about to return to our screens as Zemo in Falcon and The Winter Soldier, which will be released on Disney Plus.

Sara Howard is beyond her years in the 1896 based series, launching her own private detective agency and being the first female to join the NYPD.

Dakota is just as much of a trailblazer in the acting industry, being an A-list actress since she was a child.

In 2002, at just eight years old, she earned her first Screen Actors Guild nomination for I Am Sam.

Since then she’s appeared in everything from childhood classics like Uptown Girls and Coraline, to teen franchises like the Twilight Saga, through to gritty dramas like Man On Fire and War Of The Worlds.

She’s just been confirmed as Esther in an adaptation of book classic, The Bell Jar.

Luke Evans – John Moore

Newspaper illustrator turned detective’s assistant John Moore is a complicated soul with a tortured personality, and is played by Luke Evans.

Welshman Luke is a musician as well as an actor, and so was the perfect choice to play Gaston in the live-action remake of Beauty and The Beast.

Other iconic credits include: Netflix’s Murder Mystery, Fast and The Furious 6, The Hobbit trilogy and The Girl On The Train.

He’s now lined up to star in Nine Perfect Strangers, an adaptation of the book created by Big Little Lies writer, Liane Moriarty.

The Alienist: Angel of Darkness is available now on Netflix in the UK.
