On December 16, 2022, Netflix will release the first episode of the Noah Centineo CIA limited series, now titled The Recruit.
The series was purchased by Netflix in April 2021 after a competitive bidding war. The show at the time was billed as an espionage drama but had no official name.
The creator of the new show is Alexi Hawley, who is also known for working on Castle and The Following in addition to creating shows like the police drama The Rookie and State of Affairs.
The Recruit Cast
Violet is played by Aarti Mann, Terence by Daniel Quincy Annoh, Walter Nyland by Vondie Curtis Hall, Janus Ferber by Kristian Bruun, Max by Laura Haddock, Lester by Colton Dunn, and Hannah by Fivel Stewart round out the main cast.
Angel Parker, Linus Roache, Byron Mann as Xander, and Kaylah Zander as Amelia are some of the guest stars. Along with Centineo, Hypnotic’s Doug Liman, Gene Klein, David Bartis, Adam Ciralsky (P3 Media), Charlie Ebersol, and Hypnotic’s Doug Liman, Hawley served as executive producer and showrunner of the show. The company is eOne.
What is the plot of the next series?
Noah Centineo is dragged by “The Recruit” into the dangerous world of espionage, away from teenagers and their romantic relationships. He plays the role of Owen Hendricks, a young lawyer who works for the CIA.
Hendricks discovers a letter written by a former CIA agent named Max Meladze (Laura Haddocks) in his first week on the job. The letter offers an ultimatum: either acquit her of a crime she has been accused of, or reveal the agency’s secrets.
Hendricks must travel the world and climb the ranks of power to uncover the reality because the story lies within a secret organization. We do not know much about “The Recruit,” but once the premiere date gets closer and a trailer is released, we’ll know more about the show’s plot.
We can see a cut on Centineo’s face in the only image shared during the Netflix Tudum event, which hints that there are possibly some spies involved and lurking in the shadows. It’s a CIA production, so you expect suspense and intrigue.
What number of episodes will the future series have?
Deadline has officially confirmed that the limited series will have eight one-hour episodes.
What stage of production is the series at?
Production on the upcoming Netflix limited series is scheduled to begin in Montreal, Canada, in October 2021, according to Production Weekly.
The aforementioned production ran from March 28, 2022, to October 25, 2021. It was filmed in its entirety, including in Montreal, Quebec, and Los Angeles, California.
