Netflix announced today that The Recruit has been renewed for Season 2. The news comes a month after the spy dramedy released its 8-episode freshman run, which concluded with a cliffhanger ending.

"I'm thrilled to dive back into the fun, funny, action-packed world of The Recruit," said creator and showrunner Alexi Hawley. "Seeing how invested our audience became in the show's adventurous take on the spy world and Noah's turn as Owen has been incredibly rewarding, and I can't wait to turn it all up to "11" in Season Two."

The series follows CIA lawyer Owen Hendricks, who discovers a threatening letter by a former asset who will expose her relationship with the agency unless they exonerate her of a serious crime. Owen soon finds himself caught up in a dangerous world of power politics and mischievous players. With the stakes already high, he must now travel the world to complete his assignment and make his mark at the CIA.
