Tom Clancy is an author who has written some infamous books like The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger. Seventeen of his novels were bestsellers, and more than 100 million copies of his books were sold.
Amazon has acquired film rights to Tom Clancy’s “Jack Ryan” which has become a popular series on Amazon Prime. Season one premiered on August 30, 2018. Four months before its premier Amazon announced it as renewed for a second season.
Jack Ryan, an up-and-coming CIA analyst, is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. He soon 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 third season of Amazon’s Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan was announced but due to COVID-19 production restrictions, it may not be available until 2021.
Jack Ryan is played by John Krasinski of The Office fame. It’s hard to imagine what he might be like as a marine, that now works for the CIA, but it turns out he’s better than expected. He’s not a big bad military badass, but instead, he plays the role of an analyst for the CIA.
He’s not an in your face superhero like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Jack Ryan is more brains than brawn. But that’s also part of his charm. He’s one of those liable guys that you can’t help but want to root for.
An espionage thriller I would recommend you give a watch, especially now that season two is out.
