"We are fully aware how audiences want to consume multiple episodes of new television series faster and at their own discretion, and we're excited to offer our viewers this same experience since all 13 episodes of this unique show have been produced and are ready to be seen."

The full season will remain on the various platforms for a four-week period, while each episode will continue to premiere on NBC, Thursdays at 9/8c.

Set in 1967 Los Angeles, "Aquarius" stars Duchovny as Sam Hodiak, a decorated WWII vet and homicide detective investigating the disappearance of Emma, the 16-year-old daughter of an old girlfriend. He enlists the help of Brian Shafe (Grey Damon), a young, idealistic undercover vice cop, to bring Emma home. The investigation will lead to Charles Manson ("Game of Thrones'" Gethin Anthony).
