The Recruit , the Netflix series starring Noah Centineo , will return for a second season.
The renewal has been made official, and therefore the series will pick up the ranks from the cliffhanger of season 1, which saw Owen (Centineo) and Max (Laura Haddock) captured and in danger of life. Alexi Hawley, creator and showrunner, said:
I am happy to once again dive into the fun, goofy and action-packed world of The Recruit . Seeing how audiences embraced the series’ adventurous reinterpretation of the world of spies, and Noah’s character Owen, was incredibly satisfying, and I can’t wait to turn it all up to an “11” in Season 2.
Season 1 premiered on December 16, 2022 and spent five weeks in the Top 10 English-Language Netflix Series, reaching the Top 10 in 88 countries. Centineo will return as a performer and executive producer. To Tudum.com he told:
I know I speak for our entire cast and production team at eOne and Netflix when I say we are excited to return to The Recruit for a second season. I can’t wait to see what Alexi Hawley has in store for all of us.
Hawley will return as showrunner. Doug Liman, Gene Klein, David Bartis, Adam Ciralsky and Charlie Ebersol will return as executive producers.
The plot of The Recruit
The protagonist of the series is Owen Hendricks (Noah Centineo), a young CIA lawyer whose first week on the job is turned upside down when he discovers a threatening letter from former informant Max Meladze (Laura Haddock), who wants to denounce the agency unless that they don’t clear her of a horrible crime. Owen soon becomes drawn into the dangerous and often absurd world of power plays and its evil participants as he traverses the globe in hopes of completing his mission and making a mark on the CIA.
The cast also includes Aarti Mann, Colton Dunn, Fivel Stewart, Daniel Quincy Annoh, Kristian Bruun, Vondie Curtis Hall, Byron Mann, Angel Parker and Kaylah Zander .
