Alex Rider Season 2 Coming to IMDb TV and Prime Video

-

IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service, and Amazon Prime Video announced today that Alex Rider Season 2 has been given the green light.

The next season will be based on Eagle Strike, the fourth novel in the best-selling Alex Rider franchise, and will stream exclusively on IMDb TV in the U.S., and Prime Video in Australia, Canada, Italy, Germany, Latin America, New Zealand and the U.K.

On Nov. 12th, the first season of Alex Rider premieres on Prime Video in Italy then on Nov. 13th on IMDb TV in the US and on Prime Video in Canada and Latin America. The series quickly became a hit after it premiered on Prime Video in the UK, Australia and Germany this summer.

Produced by Eleventh Hour Films and Sony Pictures Television, the series stars Otto Farrant as Alex Rider, a London based teenager who has unknowingly been trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage.

About Alex Rider Season 2, executive producer and franchise author Anthony Horowitz said: “I couldn’t be happier with the response to season one of Alex Rider and I’m thrilled that the adventure is going to continue with Eagle Strike, one of my favourite stories.”

“As U.S. audiences discover the escapist adventure that is Alex Rider season one, there is no better time to confirm the thrilling story will absolutely continue with a second season,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, Co-Heads of Content and Programming for IMDb TV.

She added: “We are proud that our first Original series since aligning under Amazon Studios features this special character, enviable cast and the dynamic material originated by Anthony and brought to a streaming audience by Guy, Sony and the team at Eleventh Hour.”

“The first incredible season of Alex Rider has resonated brilliantly with Prime members because of its mix of suspense, entertainment and drama,” said Brad Beale Vice President, Worldwide Content Acquisition for Prime Video.

“We can’t wait for our customers to see what is to come in the next action-packed season, available exclusively on Prime Video in the UK, Italy, Germany, Australia, Canada and Latin America.”

Wayne Garvie, President, International Production, Sony Pictures Television, said “We’re thrilled that audiences in over 100 global territories connected with Alex Rider so enthusiastically since it launched on Amazon Prime Video in the UK this summer.

“Escapism and entertainment have never been more important than they are this year, and I know that what Anthony and the team at Eleventh Hour have planned for Eagle Strike will keep everyone on the edge of their seats.”

As with Alex Rider season one, Anthony Horowitz, the author of the book franchise, will serve as an Executive Producer alongside Jill Green, Eve Gutierrez, and series writer Guy Burt.
