Reports are out that Alex Rider has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes just as the British thriller is premiering stateside on streaming service IMDb TV.

Based on the novel series of the same name, the series follows a seemingly typical teenager who gets enlisted to work for a subdivision of MI6 known as the Department. There, he utilizes skills he didn't know he had to become an extraordinary spy.

While Season 1 of Alex Rider was based on the second book 'Point Blanc', Season 2 will be based on the fourth novel 'Eagle Strike'. Production is slated to begin in early 2021, with a likely return later in the year.
