This action-oriented drama follows Jack Ryan, the CIA operative at the center of a number of Tom Clancy novels that also inspired the movies The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, and Shadow Recruit.
The series was created by Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland. Cuse serves as an executive producer alongside John Krasinski, Michael Bay, and Mace Neufeld, among others. Krasinski also stars in the series as Ryan, making him the fifth actor to portray the character after Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine from the film series. In April 2018, four months before the series premiere, it was announced that Amazon had renewed the series for a second season.
