The New Alex Rider TV Show Is Coming!

Can you believe it? There’s a new TV show coming, Alex Rider, that’s based on the books by the same name by Anthony Horowitz!

I love the Alex Rider books and I’ve been thinking about rereading them these past few weeks but why do that when I can watch the show!

The TV series will start off with the premise of Point Blanc:

When Alex Rider learns that his Uncle Ian was killed in the line of duty as a British spy – and not a car accident like he’s been told – everything changes for this otherwise normal teen. Alex is soon approached by Alan Blunt, head of a top-secret offshoot of MI6 known as The Department, who reveals that he’s been unknowingly trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage. Pressured to leave his old life behind, Alex goes undercover to investigate the connection between the deaths of two billionaires and a remote boarding school called Point Blanc. Upon arrival, he discovers that the students are subjects in the megalomaniacal school director’s plan led to gain control of their families’ business empires. Aided by his classmate Kyra, best friend Tom, and his au pair Jack, Alex exposes the plot’s global network and begins his career as MI6’s youngest covert asset.
