Robert Langdon is back when you watch Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, which will get new episodes every Thursday on Peacock. But Tom Hanks isn't back for this chapter, and in his place we've got Ashley Zukerman, who's being set up as a more crush-worthy version. That's no insult to Mr. Hanks: this Langdon has a love interest and everything.

The third chapter of Dan Brown's Robert Langdon novels arrives on Peacock this week set as a prequel, with a severed hand. That hand belonged to Peter Solomon (Eddie Izzard), Langdon's mentor, who is is missing, having apparently been kidnapped.

After finding that hand in the Capitol's Rotunda, Langdon will search all around Washington D.C. for Solomon. To help Langdon out, Solomon's daughter Katherine (Valorie Curry) is here to assist.

And, to the surprise of nobody except for people who have never read a Dan Brown book before, there is a global conspiracy afoot. There will be 10 episodes of The Lost Symbol, which airs on Peacock on Thursdays.
