Netflix announced today it has renewed The Recruit for a second season that will pick up from last season’s cliffhanger ending that found Owen and Max captured with their lives endangered. The series hails from Entertainment One (eOne), Alexi Hawley, and Hypnotic starring Noah Centineo.
Creator, Showrunner and Executive Producer Alexi Hawley told Tudum.com, “I’m thrilled to dive back into the fun, funny, action-packed world of The Recruit. Seeing how invested our audience became in the show’s adventurous take on the spy world and Noah’s turn as Owen has been incredibly rewarding, and I can’t wait to turn it all up to “11” in Season Two.”
Centineo will return as Executive Producer and reprise his role as Owen Hendricks.
The series centers around Owen Hendricks (Centineo), a young CIA lawyer whose first week on the job turns upside down when he discovers a threatening letter by former asset Max Meladze (Laura Haddock), who plans to expose the agency unless they exonerate her of a serious crime. Owen quickly becomes entangled in a dangerous and often absurd world of power politics and mischievous players, as he travels the world in hopes of completing his assignment and making a mark at the CIA.
The series also starred Fivel Stewart, Vondie Curtis Hall, Kristian Bruun, Aarti Mann, Colton Dunn and Daniel Quincy Annoh.
