In Alex Rider, we follow Alex Rider (Otto Farrant), a teenager from London who has, without his own knowledge, been trained since his early years for the dangerous and chaotic world of espionage.
In the upcoming second season, Alex still has the horrible events at Point Blanc stuck in his head, and while he wishes for a normal, everyday life, it seems that is slipping from his grasp.
However, when Alex’s new friend Sabina’s (Charithra Chandran) father, journalist Ed Pleasance is attacked by Yassen Gregorovich (Thomas Levin), the man who may be responsible for his uncle’s untimely death, Alex finds himself drawn, once again, the world of international espionage.
After being separated from his one-time allies within secretive MI6 division, The Department, Alex comes across a link between three people; Ed, a hacker known as Smoking Mirror, and wealthy tech genius Damian Cray (Toby Stephens).
Alex has both his guardian, Jack (Ronke Adekoluejo) and loyal friend Tom (Brenock O'Connor) at his back as he digs deeper into a sinister political conspiracy, one with consequences that could change the world.
The answer to Alex’s problems may be hidden away within Cray’s latest creation, the globally popular video game titled Feathered Serpent.
