‘The Recruit’ season 2 renewal announced by Netflix

Netflix has announced the renewal of the thriller-drama spy series The Recruit, which stars Noah Centineo as the rookie CIA lawyer Owen Hendricks.

Both Centineo and showrunner Alexi Hawley will be returning for the sequel. The cast also includes Laura Haddock, Aarti Mann, Colton Dunn, Fivel Stewart, Daniel Quincy Annoh, Kristian Bruun, Vondie Curtis Hall, Byron Mann, Angel Parker and Kaylah Zander.

On the renewal, Centineo said: “I know I speak for our entire cast and executive team at eOne and Netflix when I say that we’re thrilled to be returning to The Recruit for a second season. I’m looking forward to seeing what Alexi Hawley has in store for us all.”

The official synopsis for the series reads: “The Recruit centers around Owen Hendricks (Noah Centineo), a young CIA lawyer whose first week on the job turns upside down when he discovers a threatening letter by former asset Max Meladze (Laura Haddock), who plans to expose the agency unless they exonerate her of a serious crime.

“Owen quickly becomes entangled in a dangerous and often absurd world of power politics and mischievous players, as he travels the world in hopes of completing his assignment and making a mark at the CIA.”

Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger, with Russian Asset Max (Haddock) being shot by her own daughter, Karolina (Maddie Hasson). The new season will address this.
