Plot Synopsis

Based on the best-selling Liebermann novels by Frank Tallis, VIENNA BLOOD is set in 1900s Vienna: a hot bed of philosophy, science and art, where a clash of cultures and ideas play out in the city's grand cafes and opera houses. Max Liebermann is a brilliant young English doctor, studying under the famed psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Max is keen to understand the criminal mind and begins to observe Oskar Rheinhardt, a Detective Inspector in the Vienna Police Department, who is struggling with a perplexing case. Max's extraordinary skills of perception and forensics -- and his deep understanding of human behavior and deviance -- help Oskar solve Vienna's most mysterious cases. VIENNA BLOOD had its U.S. series premiere on Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT on PBS (check local listings).
On Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 10pm (check local listings), PBS aired the Season 2 debut of VIENNA BLOOD. The new season features three, two-part stories:

"The Melancholy Countess (Part 1)" (Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 10pm): When a depressed Hungarian countess drowns in the bath of her lavish hotel suite, it looks like suicide. Intense scrutiny falls on her psychoanalyst, Max. Oskar teams up with Max to solve the riddle of the countess's death and clear Max's professional reputation.

"The Melancholy Countess (Part 2)" (Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 10pm): Circumstantial evidence points to the countess's young friend having poisoned her, but without a motive, Oskar and Max must widen the search. A breakthrough in Max's analysis of the countess's dreams opens a new line of investigation.

"The Devil's Kiss (Part 1)" (Sunday, January 23, 2022 at 10pm):When a beggar girl finds a mutilated corpse in the slums, Oskar's superior informs him that the investigation is not their concern. But when Oskar receives anonymous messages relating to the murder, he can't resist delving further.

"The Devil's Kiss (Part 2)" (Sunday, January 30, 2022 at 10pm): Oskar instigates a surveillance operation to catch the assassin and uncovers an intricate foreign plot. Can Max and Oskar defuse the scheme in time to save innocent lives? Meanwhile, Max's personal life faces yet more complications.

"Darkness Rising (Part 1)" (Sunday, February 6, 2022 at 10pm): A monk is found brutally murdered in his monastery. Suspicion falls on a religious Jew who recently reprimanded the monk for spreading anti-Semitic rhetoric. The scandal reaches Clara, who pleads with her ex-fiance Max for help.

"Darkness Rising (Part 2)" (Sunday, February 13, 2022 at 10pm): Max discovers a clue that reveals a hint at the murdered monk's behavior. The atmosphere intensifies when another monk is found dead. To untangle the truth, Max will need to become acquainted with the devil, dressed in all his finery.
