New Trailer for Amazon's JACK RYAN

Amazon has released a new trailer for their forthcoming TV series Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, which premieres August 31. It looks pretty good, and I'm glad that they're playing up the fact that Ryan is an analyst... though once again, as with Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, it looks like they've made the mistake of conflating Ryan and Clark and thrust Ryan into too much of the action too soon. (Clark isn't in this show, as the rights to that character are tied up with the long-in-the-works film adaptation of Without Remorse.) But I'm still excited for this!

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan was already renewed for a second season back in April, hot on the heels of the massive success of series star John Krasinski's horror movie A Quiet Place. In season two, according to Deadline, "Jack Ryan (Krasinski) confronts the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America. The second season commences production this summer in Europe, South America and the United States. Also returning for Season 2 is Wendell Pierce who will reprise his role as James Greer." So while Season 1 looks to be loosely inspired by Clancy's Patriot Games (with the Irish terrorists swapped for Islamic extremists), it sounds from that brief description as if Season 2 will be loosely inspired by Clear and Present Danger. Now take a look at the trailer for Season 1!
