The Black Adam actor stars as Owen Hendricks, a 24-year-old lawyer at the CIA who is just trying to survive his first week on the job when he uncovers a blackmail letter from a former operative named Max Meladze (Laura Haddock). When she threatens to expose the agency's secrets, Owen must learn to navigate the dark world of political espionage and blend in with a bunch of devious power players in order to save the day.
In the clip, the awkward agent finds himself quickly jumping from sorting paperwork to "being followed by the entire United Nations" as he dodges showers of bullets, leaps from bridges, and pounds a few White Claws along the way. So long, shaken martinis: Spiked seltzer is officially the secret-agent drink of choice.
Owen's youthful enthusiasm about his gig — and his desire to prove himself to his peers — will push the newbie to the brink as he attempts to solve the case. After all, he says, "I'm actually just a lawyer."
Centineo, who also serves as executive producer on the series, previously promised fans that they can expect "something a little different" from The Recruit while popping up at Netflix's TUDUM event back in September.
The actor, who rose to fame as kindhearted bae Peter Kavinsky in Netflix's To All the Boys films, joked at the time that any further details about his next big mission at the streamer were strictly "classified."
