After last season’s drama at Point Blanc school, when Alex (played by Otto Farrant) faced Russian assassin Yassen Gregorovich and solved a mystery involving his own clone, we find the undercover agent trying to balance school life with his adrenaline-fueled activities for MI6.

But that’s a non-starter for the teen James Bond. Instead, after meeting Sabina Pleasure (Charithra Chandran), he’s drawn into a brand-new conspiracy linking her journalist father, a ruthless hacker, and the tech billionaire Damian Cray, whose new video game Feathered Serpent 2 is poised to “change the world” – and not in a good way.

In addition to Farrant, Game of Throne’s Stephane Dillane is back as head of the Department of Special Operations, plus Vicky McClure as deputy head Mrs Jones. Brenock O’Connor and Ronkẹ Adékọluẹ́jọ́ return as Alex’s BFF and primary guardian respectively, while Toby Stephens (Die Another Day) is new to the show as the scheming Damian.

It looks to be a twisty-turny blast for teens and adults alike. So read on for our how to watch Alex Rider season 2 online guide, which details how to stream the show FREE in a number of territories.

Lucky Brits! Apart from America, the UK is the only other country with access to IMDb TV.

Just sign-in to your Amazon account and enjoy thousands of hours of free content.

However, IMDb TV in the UK has content tailored specifically for a British audience, so the line-up differs slightly to the US version. For example, there’s a section called British Movies and TV that includes The English Patient, Beowulf, and Lawrence of Arabia, on top of indie comedies, dramas, iconic horror movies and more. It’s well worth checking out.
