Based on the phenomenally successful novels by author Anthony Horowitz, teenage spy hero Alex Rider (Otto Farrant) returns to screen in an eight-episode season. Following the death of his uncle and guardian, Ian Rider (Andrew Buchan), Alex reluctantly becomes an agent for the British government after finding out the truth about his uncle’s identity, who worked as an agent for the British Secret Service.
