Amazon‘s upcoming espionage series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan has been surrounded by a lot of buzz, from the surprise casting of John Krasinski in the title role to the second season renewal over four months before the show has debuted. To keep the anticipation rolling, Amazon has debuted the new Jack Ryan series trailer, which you can check out below, along with new key art in the gallery!
Krasinski (13 Hours, The Office) stars in the series as the titular Jack Ryan, a reinvention with a modern sensibility of the famed and lauded Tom Clancy hero, a character with a star-filled Hollywood history, having been previously portrayed by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine.
With an original storyline while still maintaining the fan-favorite characters, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is an action-packed CIA thriller that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats through every twist and turn. The series centers on Jack Ryan, an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time and follows the titular character as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale. The one-hour, eight-episode dramatic series also stars Wendell Pierce (The Wire) as James Greer and Abbie Cornish (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as Cathy Mueller.
Executive producers are Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Graham Roland (Almost Human), who wrote the pilot based on a story he and Cuse developed. Jack Ryan is co-produced with Paramount and Skydance Television, executive produced by Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form (Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), as well as Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross, along with Mace Neufeld (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and Lindsey Springer.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime starting Friday, August 31.
