IMDb TV Announces Premiere Date for Season 2 of 'Alex Rider'

IMDb TV has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of its original drama series Alex Rider.

All 8 episodes of the second season will be available on Friday, December 3.

In the new season, Alex is still reeling from the traumatic events at Point Blanc, and desperately wants to return to a normal life. But when his new friend Sabina's father, journalist Ed Pleasance, is attacked by Yassen Gregorovich, the man who may have killed his uncle, Alex reluctantly finds himself drawn back into the world of international espionage. Cut loose from his one-time allies within shadowy MI6 division The Department, Alex discovers a link between Ed, a dangerous hacker known as Smoking Mirror, and tech billionaire Damian Clay. With the help of his guardian Jack and trusted friend Tom, Alex must unravel a sinister political plot with global repercussions, the answer to which may be locked within Cray's latest product, the global phenomenon video game Feathered Serpent.

The drama stars Otto Farrant, Stephen Dillane, Vicky McClure, Brenock O'Connor, Ronke Adékoluéjó, Marli Siu, Toby Stephens, Rakie Ayola and Charithra Chandran.

Guy Burt developed the drama based on the novels by Anthony Horowitz. They executive produce with Jill Green and Eve Gutierrez. Sony Pictures Television and Eleventh Hour Films produce.
