The new TV series will follow Ryan as he attempts to stop a “new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.” A new trailer has been released and it shows a group of agents abducting two men to be brought to Krasinski.
Ryan worked in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), working in a variety of positions until he became the deputy director. He would later become the president of the United States, serving two terms and dealing with various international crises. He has appeared in the Jack Ryan series of novels, including The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, The Sum of All Fears, and many more.
