I’m so excited! I love the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan series. I have been reading the books from the very first one, Patriot Games, many years ago, and still love it even after several other authors like Marc Cameron, Grant Blackwood, and Mark Greaney took over the series when Tom Clancy passed away.
So I’ve been following the news since 2015 about a new TV series which was in production to be released sometime in the future.
And finally, the production has concluded and now the first teasers of the series are out.
The actor to play Jack Ryan is John Krasinski, known for his role as Jim Halpert in the popular sitcom The Office. In Jack Ryan, he will be playing a CIA analyst who, based on the Amazon series description,
stumbles upon a suspicious series of bank transfers, his search for answers pulls him from the safety of his desk job and catapults him into a deadly game of cat and mouse throughout Europe and the Middle East, with a rising terrorist figurehead preparing for a massive attack against the US and her allies.
Right now we will have 10 episodes in the first series from the start. Morten Tyldum, the director of the movie Passengers, will direct the pilot episode, and Daniel Sackheim, who directed the movie The Americans, will direct several episodes of the show. He will also be producing the series.
Tom Clancy Jack Ryan had a new trailer shown at the New York Comic Con on October 7, 2017. Here is the first official trailer featuring John Krasinski.
