We’re so excited for Dakota Fanning‘s new project because we’ll be able to watch it from the comfort of home!
The 22-year-old actress is heading back to television for her first regular role on a series since 2002, when she was just seven. She is set to star on the new TNT show The Alienist.
“The Alienist centers on three investigators working together to solve a series of murders in 1896 New York,” according to TV Line.
Dakota will be playing “a young NYPD secretary who’s determined to become the department’s first female detective.” Luke Evans is playing a newspaper reporter while Daniel Bruhl will play a criminal psychologist, who is also known as the alienist.
Dakota has previously starred in the Syfy series Taken back in 2002 and she appeared in one episode of Friends in 2004. This will be her first foray into television since then!
