Alex Rider Season 1 was the adaptation of the books that we always wanted, and a second season is coming. Here’s what we know about Alex Rider Season 2 so far.
It was natural to be worried about the adaptation of the Alex Rider books. The author of the novel series we all grew up with, Anthony Horowitz, certainly help to settle some fears and concerns with his excitement for the show, but there was always going to be some apprehension.
In the end, the adaptation was everything we needed and more. Based on Point Blanc, it didn’t just introduce the characters but developed characters from the books that we didn’t expect to spend so much time with. It broke down some of the tropes in spy shows, but still kept enough to make it feel like the book series we’d come to know and love.
There’s no way we weren’t excited to find out about Alex Rider Season 2. What do we know about the season so far?

There is a chance that we could see it arrive in 2021. However, it’s potentially going to be sometime in 2022. We’ll certainly keep an eye out for this date and any hints about when it could arrive.
