Prime Video today confirmed a second season of the hit conspiracy thriller The Terminal List from MRC Television, with season two based on Jack Carr’s New York Times best-selling novel True Believer.
Additionally, Prime Video announced today it has ordered a new untitled prequel series, to be co-created by Carr and season one creator/showrunner David DiGilio, focusing on fan-favorite Ben Edwards, portrayed by Taylor Kitsch (upcoming Painkiller and American Primeval, Waco, and True Detective).
The prequel series featuring additional iconic Carr characters, including James Reece (Chris Pratt), Raife Hastings, Mohammed Farooq, and Ernest “Boozer” Vickers (Jared Shaw), is an elevated espionage thriller that takes viewers on Edwards’ journey from Navy SEAL to CIA paramilitary operator, exploring the darker side of warfare and the human cost that comes with it.
