While we know that Prime Video has decided to wrap up the ‘Jack Ryan’ series with a fourth season, Tom Clancy’s adaptation is far from over.

To fill the title, ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’ features John Krasinski as a character from the Tom Clancy novel previously brought – to theaters – by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, and Chris Pine. Ryan, a former Marine who was injured in the line of duty, became a stockbroker before joining the CIA as an analyst and saw more action than many of his coworkers.
The series also stars Wendell Pierce and Abbie Cornish, who play his boss James Greer and his girlfriend Cathy Mueller, respectively. Krasinski was signed for four seasons when he initially took the job, and in subsequent seasons has been involved in writing and performing.
Season 3 will feature newcomer Nina Hoss as Czech President Alena Kovac and Betty Gabriel as CIA Station Chief Rome Elizabeth Wright.
In the latest season of this action-thriller series, Ryan is working as a CIA case officer in Rome, when he is told that Project Sokol, a secret plan to restore the Soviet Empire, is being resurrected more than 50 years after that. considered closed.
Jack embarks on a mission to confirm intelligence, but things go awry, and he is wrongly involved in a bigger conspiracy. Accused of treason, with Red Notice out for his arrest, Jack is forced to flee his own government, if he has any hope of uncovering the rogue faction before it’s too late.
Crossing Europe as he is hunted by former allies and new foes, Jack races against time to stop a series of destabilizing conflicts leading to global catastrophe…
So, you know, a pretty normal day at the “office” for poor old Jack. And no, we’re not making that joke because of Krasinski’s previous famous TV work.

The new show, following the adventures of Domingo “Ding” Chavez, another main character in the ‘Ryan’ story, is in very early development, to star Michael Peña.
He might make headlines that if the show does become a series – the ‘Ryan’ team will introduce the character in the final episode of Season 3, with Peña going on to become a series regular for the fourth season.
‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’ will premiere on Prime Video on December 21 with eight episodes of Season 3. And you can still stream the first two if you need to catch up first.
