It releases later in the year.

Netflix is no stranger to releasing new shows, and one of the latest to join the popular streaming platform is The Recruit. The series follows a lawyer (Noah Centineo) who joins the CIA when he gets involved with issues that might just be too much for him to handle. The Recruit is helmed by Alexi Hawley who also created The Rookie with Nathan Fillion and Alyssa Diaz. Netflix recently released the trailer for the upcoming show, so let’s take a look at everything we know about The Recruit so far.
