Who is Jack Ryan? Well, if you have watched The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger or The Sum of All Fears, you’ve already met him. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan character has been showcased in books, TV, films and video game. But that’s not stopping Amazon from putting out another television series of the popular character. This time, it stars John Krasinski as the CIA analyst.

The premise of the new series takes place in Ryan’s younger days, when he’s first starting out as an analyst. He discovers terrorist communication and forces him into the field. It’s not a groundbreaking idea, but one that resonates through different decades of Jack Ryan’s film career.

Ryan isn’t simply a pencil pusher. He’s a former Marine, who can handle himself. But his fighting days were over, at least he thought so.
