Netflix has shared the official trailer and key art for The Recruit, the new spy series launching on the streaming service on Friday, December 16, 2022. You can watch the trailer using the player below and you’ll find the full key art underneath.
The series comes from creator, executive producer and showrunner Alexi Hawley. The production company is eOne.
The Recruit stars Noah Centineo, Laura Haddock, Aarti Mann, Colton Dunn, Fivel Stewart, Daniel Quincy Annoh, Kristian Bruun, Vondie Curtis Hall, Byron Mann, Angel Parker, and Kaylah Zander.
The executive producers are Noah Centineo, Doug Liman, Gene Klein and David Bartis on behalf of Hypnotic, Adam Ciralsky, and Charlie Ebersol.
The Recruit centers around Owen Hendricks (Noah 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.
“He’s definitely a multifaceted individual,” Centineo tells Netflix site Tudum. “By day, he’s got the suit, he’s got the hair, he looks presentable. But by night, when he goes home to his roommates, Terrance and Hannah, he can actually relax.”
Centineo continued: “This is a guy who clearly just wings it. Not that Owen doesn’t work hard. Not that he’s not smart… [He’s just like,] ‘It’ll work out and I trust my gut.’ That doesn’t really work well with the CIA at all.”
The actor added that Owen will eventually learn that lesson over the course of The Recruit. “He thinks he’s working as a lawyer ‘ the truth is you’re never just a lawyer at the CIA. There’s so many more things going on, and that’s the world we explored with The Recruit.”
