‘Alex Rider’: Season 2 Gets Trailer & December Premiere On IMDb TV
‘Alex Rider‘ is set to return for Season 2 as IMDb TV releases a trailer for the teen spy drama, which will shift on to Amazon’s newly launched free streaming service in the UK when it airs this December.
Produced by Eleventh Hour Films, ‘Alex Rider’ is a spy-thriller series based on the popular book franchise written by Anthony Horowitz, which has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. The series follows Alex, a London-based teenager who has unknowingly been trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage.
In Season Two, Alex is still reeling from the traumatic events at Point Blanc, and desperately wants to return to a normal life. But when his new friend Sabina’s father, journalist Ed Pleasance, is attacked by Yassen Gregorovich, the man who may have killed his uncle, Alex reluctantly finds himself drawn back into the world of international espionage. Cut loose from his one-time allies within shadowy MI6 division The Department, Alex discovers a link between Ed, a dangerous hacker known as Smoking Mirror, and tech billionaire Damian Cray. With the help of his guardian Jack and trusted friend Tom, Alex must unravel a sinister political plot with global repercussions, the answer to which may be locked within Cray’s latest product, the global phenomenon video game Feathered Serpent. This season is based on the fourth book in the franchise, Eagle Strike.
“After the success of Season One, I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to reassemble our fantastic cast for this second, action-packed adventure… with the added bonus of Toby Stephens in a key role,” said Anthony Horowitz, author of the Alex Rider franchise.
