After a break of 6 long years from the small screen, the A-list star Chris Pratt is all set to return for a television show. The Terminal List is a forthcoming American thriller show scooped up by Amazon Prime Video based on a book of the exact name by Jack Carr. To find out more, here’s everything we know about the upcoming series release date, cast and plot.
What is “The Terminal List” about?
In an interview with SOF, Jack Carr said, “At its base level, it’s a story of revenge without constraint. Novels and movies about revenge always resonated with me, so that’s where I wanted to start my writing journey and the journey of my protagonist, James Reece. Reece is a Navy SEAL sniper turned SEAL officer who is on his last deployment when disaster strikes in the mountains of Afghanistan and then again on the home front upon his return. He begins unravelling a conspiracy involving the testing of drugs on our nation’s most elite warriors and compiles a list of those involved and responsible for the deaths of his troop and family. He then prepares for his mission and starts killing those involved using the tactics and techniques used by the enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan, so at another level, it’s about someone abandoning the rule of law and becoming the terrorist and insurgent he’d been fighting for sixteen years of constant warfare. One step further, it’s about a veteran of the War on Terror bringing that war home to the people who have been sending young men and women to their deaths downrange from comfortable offices in Northern Virginia and D.C. for closing in on two decades.”
