John Krasinski will soon be going undercover once more as he returns to "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan." But as we await the coming of the Amazon Prime series' second season, the Newton-raised star is warning us that his titular character will be a "changed man."
"This is a guy who very openly stated, 'Here's all the work. Go get the bad guys. I don't want to be a part of it,' " Krasinski just told Entertainment Weekly of the onscreen CIA operative.
"But now his eyes have been opened and he can't go back," the show's executive producer and star added.
As seen in the Season 2 teaser released in late July, the clandestine drama will continue as Ryan pursues a possible shipment of illegal arms deep in the jungles of Venezuela. His South American investigation becomes even more complex as it starts to point to a far bigger plot and, as he gets closer to the truth, the President of Venezuela tries to deter him from moving forward at all costs. The threat doesn't seem to shake Ryan, with him and his fellow operatives still determined to carry out their mission and thwart the president's global-scale plans.
Besides Krasinski, the upcoming season of "Jack Ryan" will also star Wendell Pierce as James Greer, Michael Kelly as Mike November, as well as Noomi Rapace as Harriet "Harry" Baumann, who'll apparently serve as Ryan's potentially dangerous love interest in the coming episodes.
It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that Ryan would be stepping up his CIA game and growing into a more seasoned spy this time around. Last season, we watched the lowly analyst stumble outside the comfort of his cushy desk job at the agency after uncovering some fishy financial transactions. Without any experience, he was immediately thrown into the field, finding himself in the center of international terrorist operations and attempting to navigate the likes of hostage situations, sex trafficking and Ebola outbreaks. If that's not enough to change a man, we're not sure what is.
It's still unclear as to when exactly we'll get to pick up where we left off with "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan," but we can expect it to be "coming soon" to Amazon Prime Video.
