One of the latest Amazon Prime shows, The Terminal List, starring Chris Pratt in the leading role, was released only a few days ago, and it is still early for a 2nd season to be confirmed. Even if we hear such news any time soon, we would still have a lot of time on our hands before The Terminal List Season 2 drops. So, why not watch shows like The Terminal List until the release of future seasons to ease our minds a bit?
Based on a novel by Jack Carr, the series follows Pratt’s character James Reece, a Lieutenant Commander in the US Navy. After his platoon on a covert mission is ambushed, Reece turns home with conflicting memories of the event, questioning if he was at fault. As he cannot live with the thoughts in his head, Reece investigates why his platoon was ambushed on that mission and learns about dark forces threatening him and his loved ones.
