Jack Ryan, Amazon’s new spy thriller based on the character from Tom Clancy’s novels, will launch on August 31st and the streaming service has issued this great new trailer showing what’s in store.
The series marks the TV debut of the character who has been played by Alex Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Chris Pine on the big screen and is played by John Krasinski (13 Hours, The Office) in this new take on the character.
Although it ditches Clancy’s Cold War plots for an original storyline the show features fan-favourite characters, including James Greer (Wendell Pierce), and follows the titular character as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the centre of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.
Amazon bosses have already ordered a second series.
The service is also available with a stand-alone subscription.
