About TV show The Alienist season 2
New York City at the End of the 19th Century: While the poor in the city are fighting for survival, the upper classes are indulging in festivities and decadence. But then, in a very short time, several terrible corpses of young male prostitutes are found. The newly appointed police chief Theodore Roosevelt (Brian Geraghty) intends to keep the investigation secret and hand it over to criminal psychologist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Brühl) and the newspaper illustrator John Moore (Luke Evens). The two are joined by Sara Howard (Dakota Fanning), Roosevelt's idiosyncratic secretary, who is determined to become the city's first female detective. Together, the uneven team of investigators uses the newly emerging methods of psychology and forensics to capture the cruel killer.
