There's a new Robert Langdon in town. The movies that saw Tom Hanks playing the genius symbologist will now see a younger version in the form of Ashley Zukerman playing the titular role. Peacock is bringing 'The Lost Symbol', which adapts the 2009 best-seller novel of the same name by Dan Brown. Tom Hanks last played the role in 'Inferno' (2016) and the films had skipped one of the books.

While we wait for the action-adventure series to premiere, here are some of Peacock's impressive content to binge on: 'Departure', 'The Capture', 'Intelligence' and 'Brave New World.'

According to IMDb, the synopsis reads: "The series follows the early adventures of famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, who finds himself pulled into a series of deadly puzzles when his mentor is kidnapped. The CIA forces him onto a task force where he uncovers a chilling conspiracy."

Safe to say, 'The Lost Symbol' will pretty much follow the same template as the films. World-renowned symbologist Robert Langdon will be asked to help in crime investigations where the cryptic details stump the experts and detectives. Naturally, his investigations lead to massive, thrilling discoveries.
