Alex Rider Season 3 - Updates on Release Date, Cast, and Plot

“Alex Rider,” a television series based on Anthony Horowitz’s bestselling book series, stars Otto Farrant as the title character, a teenage lad recruited by MI6 to operate as a spy and uses his youth to gain access to locations that adult spies cannot. The first novel in the series, “Stormbreaker,” was adapted into a film in 2006, starring Alex Pettyfer as Rider, but it was a critical and box office flop, with a 35 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and a domestic gross of only $677,646, while the worldwide profit was roughly $23 million (via Box Office Mojo).

Fortunately, they recently gave it another shot, with the new TV series airing on Amazon Prime in June 2020 to positive reviews. The new “Alex Rider” series is based on “Point Break,” the second book in the original series, and stars Stephen Dillane, Vicky McClure, Toby Stephens, Andrew Buchan, and others, in addition to Farrant. The sitcom was promptly renewed for Season 2, which launched on Amazon’s IMDb TV service on December 3, 2021, indicating that fans enjoyed it.

Alex Rider is expected to get a third season.

“Alex Rider” hasn’t been renewed or canceled as of yet, which isn’t surprising given that Season 2 was just released on IMDb TV. The show’s future, however, appears bright, based on the enthusiastic response to the fresh batch of episodes. On Rotten Tomatoes, it doesn’t yet have a critics rating, but it does have a 95 percent Audience Score, which is a positive sign. Many critics agree, as Martin Carr of Flickering Myth put it in his review: “The sequel to ‘Alex Rider’ succeeds in expanding the world… Audiences also gain a sense of connectivity, which helps ground action scenes by presenting actual outcomes.”

Because “Alex Rider” is a streaming series, it’s unlikely that the public will be able to see the real viewership figures, which are a big element in a production company’s decision to renew or not. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television in partnership with Eleventh Hour Films, which is partly owned by Sony and led by Jill Green, Anthony Horowitz’s wife, and distributed by Amazon Studios worldwide (via Deadline). Members of the cast also spoke strongly about their characters’ futures in a prospective “Alex Rider” Season 3 in an interview with Express.

The sitcom was renewed for a second season in November 2020 (via The Hollywood Reporter), so fans may have to wait a few months for formal word on Season 3, but maybe good news will arrive sooner. The rider is almost certain to return for a third season after such a good sophomore campaign.
