Season 2 : Episode 13

Show Summary

Inspired in part by historical events, this program contains fictitious characters, places and circumstances.
David Duchovny stars as an LAPD Homicide Detective Sam Hodiak, a decorated World War II veteran, whose involvement in an undercover investigation ultimately leads to Charles Manson. The setting is Los Angeles 1967. Ringing with the music from the era, Aquarius is an expansive work of historical fiction that begins two years before the 1969 Tate-LaBianca murders. The story starts with the disappearance of Emma Kahn, the 16 year old daughter of an old girlfriend. When Hodiak tries to find her, he encounters hostility, distrust and silence from the sea of hippies. Hodiak enlists the help of idealistic vice cop Brian Shafe (Grey Damon) to infiltrate this new counterculture and find her. There is a generational gap between Hodiak and Shafe but they both realize the importance and urgency of finding Emma. Urgent because Emma has joined the growing band of drifters under the sway of career criminal Charles Manson. Writer John McNamara (In Plain Sight) serves as executive producer with Marty Adelstein (Prison Break), David Duchovny and Melanie Greene. Aquarius is a production of Tomorrow Studios, a joint partnership between Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios.

NBC will release all 13 episodes on and the NBC app after the show’s two-hour linear network premiere on May 28, 2015. The full 13 episodes will only be available for a four-week period ending June 28, 2015.

Season 1 episode 1-8 aired on Thursdays at 9:00pm while the rest of the season was moved to Saturdays at 9:00pm.
