“Jack Ryan” season 2 is slated to start streaming in a few weeks, but the audience who attended the show’s New York Comic-Con panel earlier this month are lucky to have watched the season’s first episode. Based on reports from people who have seen the premiere, thrilling action can be expected right at the beginning of a new season.

‘Jack Ryan’ season 2 spoilers: What brings Jack to Venezuela?

The titular protagonist, CIA Officer Jack Ryan (John Krasinski), is going to another foreign land to investigate various dealings that poses a threat to international security. As can be expected, the mission will not go down as planned and puts Jack to a series of life-threatening situations while not losing sight of his mission’s purpose.

That Hashtag Show reports “Jack Ryan” season 2, episode 1 opens with a series of mysteries. A ship is shown launching a missile onto the South China Sea that catches the attention of James Greer (Wendell Pierce). It can be recalled that Greer became Jack’s most trusted ally in season 1, and the show’s latest trailer suggests that that bond would only get stronger. Jack happens to be suspicious of the same ship believing it delivered major weapons from Russia to Venezuela, where civil unrest has erupted.

Based on the synopsis of “Jack Ryan” season 2, episode 1, Greer catches heat in his new CIA designation in Russia. Meanwhile, the video teaser also shows Jack getting frustrated at his boss for not taking his report with much weight. This explains how the duo will get together again for another dangerous mission, now situated in South America.

Synopses of all eight episodes of “Jack Ryan” season 2 have been released online and suggest that the story is bound to get more intense than the first season. Expect deaths of high-profile American politicians while Jack and Greer getting caught in the middle of a dirty re-election campaign in Venezuela.
