Duchovny is also returning for the new X-Files, which films this Summer, for a 6-episode run.
Aquarius premiers Thursday May 28th at 9pm ET on NBC.
It's 1967 and the era of free love, drug experimentation and the Vietnam War is in full effect. When the teenage daughter of a respected lawyer goes missing, LAPD Detective Sam Hodiak starts asking around. Needing the help of someone they will trust, he partners with rebellious undercover cop Brian Shafe, a man who's more comfortable rolling a joint than patrolling a beat. It's not long before they stumble upon a small-time cult leader seeking out vulnerable women to join his cause. From there, they follow this man's trail down a rabbit hole of drugs, sex, murder and cultural revolution. Little do they know, however, the guy they're hunting will eventually become the killer we now recognize as Charles Manson. This is the show that will explore the cat-and-mouse game between Manson and the police that will go on for several seasons, ultimately ending with the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders.
