“Alex Rider,” a television series based on Anthony Horowitz’s bestselling book series, stars Otto Farrant as the title character, a young lad recruited by MI6 to work as a spy, who uses his youth to gain access to locations that adult agents 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 financial failure, scoring only 35% on Rotten Tomatoes and only $677,646 domestically, although the worldwide profit was roughly $23 million (via Box Office Mojo).
Fortunately, they have tried again, with the new TV series airing on Amazon Prime in June 2020 to great reviews. The new “Alex Rider” drama is based on the second book in the original series, “Point Break,” and stars Stephen Dillane, Vicky McClure, Toby Stephens, Andrew Buchan, and others, in addition to Farrant. It’s safe to say that the show was well-liked because it was promptly renewed for Season 2, which will premiere on Amazon’s IMDb TV service on December 3, 2021. Fans of “Alex Rider” are already asking if there will be a Season 3 despite the fact that the second season was only recently released. So, will Rider be back for additional espionage operations in the near future?
Is Season 3 of Alex Rider set to premiere in 2022?
We’re hoping for a third season. This is the Alex Rider adaptation we’ve all been waiting for, and we don’t want it to end any time soon. The concern is whether it will be ready in time for 2022.
It is possible, although the timeline would be compressed if production had not yet begun. We’re looking at the end of 2022 as a target date.

It’s more likely that the release will take place in early 2023. This would give plenty of time for filming and the necessary post-production work. For a series like this, post-production would take at least six months.
We can’t compare the wait between Seasons 1 and 2 to get a sense of how long it will take. The delay was caused by the pandemic.
What Is The Story About?
It’s nearly impossible now to envision anyone other than Otto Farrant in the lead role, but that wasn’t always the case. Did you realize the young intelligence spy may be the same child who stabbed Snow in Game of Thrones? Actor Brenok O’Connor refused to play the primary spy for some reason, handing him off to Farrant.
Alex was orphaned at a young age, and his uncle raised him. The individual was in a rush after lessons for training on the advice of a relative. When the protagonist’s uncle died, he was able to employ the knowledge he had gained. Strange people mounted a hunt for the teenager himself.
It turned out that the young man’s relative was not so innocent, and he will now have to train as a covert intelligence agent. He enrolls at a private school in order to learn the identity of his uncle’s assassin.
Remember that the studio opted to film the sequel to Anthony Horowitz’s first and second books, which served as the inspiration for the first and second seasons? The film turned out to be considerably more serious and adult than Thunderbolt (2006), which focused on the first novel.
By the way, Weinstein Studios, founded by brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, produced that film. Although Sony has not stated when the Alex Rider 3 season will be published, fans remain hopeful.
