The series by actor John Krasinski Jack Ryan by Tom Clancy will go live on August 31.

Krasinski takes a fresh look at the transition from a desk job to a world-class spy.

In the trailer, Krasinski's character is torn out of the CIA job and sent to the field for the first time. He protests: "I cannot go to Yemen, I am an analyst. I do not question people, I write reports".

He quickly faces bombs, armed attackers and international threats, while at the same time promising to protect civilians from danger.

Based on Tom Clancy's novels, Krasinski is just the latest actor to take on the role of Jack Ryan, following in the footsteps of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Chris Pine, and Ben Affleck. Abbie Cornish, Wendell Pierce and Ali Suliman can also be seen on the show, reports divers.com.

The Amazon Prime Original was recently renewed for a second season before its premiere, which will begin production this summer in Europe, South America, and the United States.

After pursuing Ryan's foray into field work in season 1, the spy confronts the rulers in season 2 with a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America. The creators of the series, executive producers Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, will also act as co-showrunners in season two.

Both seasons will consist of eight episodes, with the first season debuting on August 31.
