David Duchovny’s Aquarius Set to Premiere in May

“Aquarius” will have at least one full season of 13 epispodes.


David Duchovny’s new television show set around the backdrop of the Charles Manson murders has gotten a premiere date. “Aquarius” will first air on NBC on Thursday May 28th at 9 PM.

The regular television season ends in May and in the past any programs which first begin their season in the spring or summer were known as summer replacements. This was because they were not considered good enough to air during the regular television season and so the networks simply chose to “burn off” filmed episodes in the summer when fewer people stay home to watch TV.

But all of this has changed in recent years as some of the most popular as well as critically acclaimed shows do not air until the summer. The trend was started by cable networks which wanted to avoid directly competing with the networks and because they were so successful the broadcast networks have begun to copy this practice.

In the new drama, Duchovny plays a 1960’s LAPD police sergeant Sam Hodiak who finds himself on the heels of the Manson Family – known for the gruesome murders of Roman Polanski’s wife, Sharon Tate, and several other people.

The 54 year old actor whose father was Jewish has already had two long running hit TV shows under his belt. After the decade long running “The X Files, ” Duchovny starred for 7 years on Showtime’s “Californication.”

“Aquarius” will have at least one full season of 13 epispodes.
