Amazon has greenlit 10 episodes of John Krasiniski-starring Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan series. The series is based on the late author’s popular novels – if you aren’t sure who Tom Clancy is – ask your Dad or Grandfather for a summary. Anyone surprised Netflix did not try to snatch this up?

The series will consist of 10 one-hour episodes. It will be a modern reinvention of the Clancy created character. According to the press release he is “thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time.”

Paramount and Skydance Television are co-producing the series, which will be executive-produced by Lost’s Carlton Cuse, Graham Roland, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross, Mace Neufeld, and Lindsey Springer – according to Entertainment Weekly

Roy Price, head of Amazon Studio’s media development stated that: “We’re excited to add the Jack Ryan global franchise to our robust originals pipeline.”  “Our customers will enjoy a compelling adaptation of the action-packed spy thriller book series, further raising the bar for the quality level of storytelling that has made Prime Video a leading destination for content.”

The date for the series to hit Amazon Prime has not yet been released, but we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, you can always re-watch The Office to get your daily dose of John Krasinski or watch Clancy’s other classic movie/show adaptations.
