Alex Rider Season 2: Release Date, Cast and more

(Welcome to …And more, our no-frills, zero BS guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand by.)

If we talk about worthy espionage shows, I could grow poetic on the subject all day long. It does not seem that people remember that Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Elizabeth Debicki all played together in an Amazon Prime series called “The Night Manager”, which was great to watch from start to finish. There are also the “Americans,” perhaps the crown jewel of this genre. The fact that it constantly tempts me to drop everything else I do and spend weeks revising it says a lot about the all-important re-watchability factor. Now there’s “Alex Rider”, a much newer spy series with some ceiling ambitions. With season 2 on the way, we have gathered everything you need to know about the series, all in one convenient space.

Alex Rider season 2 release date and where you can watch it

At this point, it would probably be easier to list the movies and show it does not have been negatively affected by the ongoing pandemic than those who have. “Alex Rider” was just one of the countless who watched the production in season 2 be disrupted among rising cases across England where the series was filming. However, filming began in February 2021 with only a brief delay, and now season 2 of “Alex Rider” is set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video subscribers on December 3, 2021.

What is Alex Rider?

“Alex Rider” follows the adventures of, you guessed it, Alex Rider. The teenage protagonist is subconsciously recruited by Britain’s spy agency MI6 to get in and out of places where other agents simply could never. The Amazon show is based on a series of ongoing novels written by author Anthony Horowitz, in which the explosive events of the first season left Alex traumatized and desperate to regain a sense of normalcy in his life. Clearly, season 2 will crush that longing for the status quo and bring Alex back into things for better or worse.

In season two, Alex is still getting rid of the traumatic events of 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Ed Pleasance, is attacked by Yassen Gregorovich, the man who may have killed his uncle, Alex reluctantly finds himself withdrawn into the world of international espionage. Cut off from his one-time allies within the shady MI6 Department, Alex discovers a connection between Ed, a dangerous hacker known as the Smoking Mirror, and tech billionaire Damian Cray. With the help of his guardian Jack and trusted friend Tom, Alex must unravel an eerie political plot with global consequences, the answer to which may be locked inside Cray’s latest product, the global phenomenon video game ‘Feathered Serpent’. This season is based on the fourth book in the franchise, ‘Eagle Strike.’
