The Terminal List - Everything We Know So Far

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

Amazon Studios is staying in the Chris Pratt business with "The Terminal List." After the release of "The Tomorrow War," it seems the two parties developed a certain comfort level with one another, with the added novelty factor of Pratt making his return to television. Despite his decidedly dorky turn as Andy Dwyer in "Parks and Recreation," the actor has become a go-to action hero for franchises like "Guardians of the Galaxy" (though those movies at least know how to make Peter Quill the butt of the joke) and, much less convincingly, "Jurassic World." Pratt appears to be following in the footsteps of "Jack Ryan" star John Krasinski upon starring in "The Terminal List." Read on for everything there is to know about the upcoming Amazon series.

The Terminal List Release Date and Where to Watch It

"The Terminal List" is currently scheduled to release in April of 2022, though the studio is sure to narrow that premiere date down once we get closer to release. The series was first announced to be coming to Amazon with Pratt as the lead in May of 2020, a month after first entering production. Filming for principal photography began on March 9, 2021, as announced by Pratt himself.

What Is The Terminal List?

Based on a best-selling series of novels written by author Jack Carr, "The Terminal List" has been described as "...a conspiracy thriller that combines elevated action with deep psychological questions about the cost of pushing our nation's highest trained operators too far. The series follows Reece (Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. Reece returns home with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. However, as new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him." 

The synopsis for Carr's 2018 book is as follows:

On deployment in Afghanistan, Lieutenant Commander James Reece's entire team is killed in a catastrophic ambush. But the deaths don't stop there, and Reece soon discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government.

With nothing left to lose, Reece directs the lessons that he's learned in over a decade of constant warfare towards revenge, ruthlessly targeting his enemies without regard for the laws of combat or the rule of law.

The Terminal List Cast

Along with Chris Pratt, "The Terminal List" stars Constance Wu as Katie Buranek, described as "a risk-seeking war correspondent who uses her byline to speak truth to power." Jai Courtney has also been cast as Steve Horn, "the billionaire kingpin behind Capstone Industries. Capstone is an enormously successful global fund with its hand in everything from pharmaceuticals to fashion. But Horn's bread and butter is capitalizing on the latest military trends and innovations. Horn's hubris and influence are equally threatening, and will put him squarely in Reece's crosshairs." The rest of the cast includes Taylor Kitsch, Riley Keough, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Alexis Louder, Christina Vidal, JD Pardo, Tyner Rushing, and more.
