CULVER CITY, California - January 19, 2023 - Today, Amazon Freevee announced that the third season of Alex Rider is in production in the UK and Malta with the return of cast members Otto Farrant, Stephen Dillane, Vicky McClure, Brenock O'Connor, Ronkẹ Adékọluẹ́jọ́, and Marli Siu. It was also revealed that Sofia Helin (The Bridge, Atlantic Crossing, The Same Sky, Mystery Road), Shelley Conn (Bridgerton, Good Omens, Gen V), Kevin McNally (The Crown, Das Boot, the Pirates of the Caribbean film series), and Jason Wong (Strangers, The Gentlemen, the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves) have joined the fan-favorite spy series.

Produced by Eleventh Hour Films and distributed worldwide by Sony Pictures Television, Alex Rider is a spy-thriller series based on the best-selling book franchise written by Anthony Horowitz, which has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. The series follows Alex, a teenager who has unknowingly been trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage.

The third season of Alex Rider features the return of series stars Otto Farrant as Alex Rider, Stephen Dillane as Alan Blunt, Vicky McClure as Mrs. Jones, Brenock O'Connor as Tom Harris, Ronkẹ Adékọluẹ́jọ́ as Jack Starbright, and Marli Siu as Kyra Vashenko-Chao. Joining the cast this season is Sofia Helin as Julia Rothman, an enigmatic, rich widow who, unbeknownst to the world, is a highly secretive agent with Scorpia, the criminal organization behind Alex Rider's deadliest encounters; Shelley Conn as Laura Kellner, a ruthless and reckless politician who challenges the Department's authority; Kevin McNally as Max Grendel, a shrewd and calm senior council for Scorpia, with the outward appearance of a kind, European gentleman; and Jason Wong as Nile, a dangerous Scorpia assassin, devoted to Rothman.

Adapted by Guy Burt from Scorpia, the fifth Alex Rider novel, Season Three sets the teenage spy on the trail of his greatest enemy: the elusive criminal network known as Scorpia. Finally free of the manipulative Alan Blunt and his Department, Alex embarks on a personal mission to destroy Scorpia once and for all, little realizing the journey will reveal his ties to both organizations run deeper than he ever thought possible.

Anthony Horowitz serves as an executive producer alongside Eleventh Hour's Jill Green and Eve Gutierrez, series writer Guy Burt, director Andreas Prochaska, and actor Otto Farrant. The series is distributed worldwide by Sony Pictures Television.
