TV - Alex Rider


Based on the books by Anthony Horowitz, watch the trailer for the new Alex Rider TV series...

When Alex Rider learns that his Uncle Ian was killed in the line of duty as a British spy – and not a car accident like he’s been told – everything changes for this otherwise normal teen. Alex is soon approached by Alan Blunt, head of a top-secret offshoot of MI6 known as The Department, who reveals that he’s been unknowingly trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage. Pressured to leave his old life behind, Alex goes undercover to investigate the connection between the deaths of two billionaires and a remote boarding school called Point Blanc.

Upon arrival, he discovers that the students are subjects in the megalomaniacal school director’s plan led to gain control of their families’ business empires. Aided by his classmate Kyra, best friend Tom, and his au pair Jack, Alex exposes the plot’s global network and begins his career as MI6’s youngest covert asset.


Created by Guy Burt who wrote most of the episodes, with Anthony Horowitz taking scribe duty on one, Otto Farrant stars as Alex Rider, alongside Stephen Dillane as his friend Tom, Marli Siu as Kyra and Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo as Jack. The series also features Vicky McClure, Andrew Buchan, Brenock O’Connor, Liam Garrigan, Ace Bhatti, Thomas Levin,  Haluk Bilginer, Ana Ularu, Howard Charles, and Nyasha Hatendi.
