What is Jack Ryan season 3 about?

Season three sees Jack Ryan, a former US Marine and CIA analyst now on the run from the formidable intelligence agency, after being accused of treason, although his boss Greer and friend Mike November continue to support him in secret.

Now a fugitive, hiding from the CIA and Russian assassins who are after him, Jack works to stop the Sokol Project - a plot to restore the Soviet Empire. There’s also the threat of a nuclear escalation to deal with.

Is Jack Ryan season 3 based on a book?

The series is based on the characters of Tom Clancy’s political thriller series known as the Ryanverse. Clancy wrote 17 novels in the series between 1984 and 2013 and several of these, including The Hunt for Red October, and Patriot Games, were made into major action films. A further 18 Jack Ryan novels have been published since Tom Clancy’s death in 2013.

The Jack Ryan Amazon series is set in the modern day, meaning that the original storylines from the novels do not feature because the books were set during the Cold War. The series is instead inspired by the books but has original storylines.
