Adapted from Jack Carr’s bestselling book and set five years before the events of The Terminal List, Dark Wolf follows Special Operator Ben Edwards’ (Kitsch) journey from Navy SEAL to CIA paramilitary operator, also touching on the human cost of warfare.

The show will feature additional familiar characters, like Ernest “Boozer” Vickers (played by Jared Shaw), and Mohammed “Mo” Farooq, who James Reece (Pratt) had personal experience with while serving in Iraq.

A release date has not yet been announced.
