It's been more than a decade since The Da Vinci Code first introduced the world to Robert Langdon but the Harvard professor is making his return in the new TV series Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol and we have all the details on how you can watch it online.

Based on Dan Brown's international bestselling thriller by the same name, The Lost Symbol tells the story of the early adventures of symbologist Robert Langdon. After his mentor Peter Solomon (Eddie Izzard) is kidnapped, Professor Langdon must solve a series of deadly puzzles to save him and thwart a global conspiracy.

However, Langdon soon finds Solomon's severed hand in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol and must decipher its location and the symbols on the hand to find his next puzzle. Langdon won't be alone though as he's joined by Solomon's daughter Katherine (Valorie Curry) in his search across Washington DC.

While Tom Hanks is well known for portraying an older Robert Langdon, Ashley Zukerman who recently starred in FX's A Teacher will be taking up the mantle this time around. Although The Lost Symbol was originally developed as a film starring Hanks, Sony Pictures was unable to adapt Dan Brown's novel into a film which is why the company decided to adapt the next novel in the series Inferno instead.

Whether you're a fan of the novel or the character of Robert Langdon, we'll show you exactly how to watch Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol from anywhere in the world.
