When Alex Rider learns that his uncle has been killed in the line of duty as a British spy everything changes for this otherwise normal teen. He is approached by Alan Blunt, head of a shadowy offshoot of MI6, who reveals that Alex has been unknowingly trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage. Pressured to investigate his uncle’s death and how it connects to the assassination of two billionaires, Alex assumes a new identity and goes undercover in a remote boarding school.

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.
