It has been over two years since the final season of Daredevil made its debut, and now Charlie Cox has finally found his next project with Netflix through a new spy drama miniseries titled Treason. According to Deadline, the English actor, along with Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Black Widow), and Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), have signed on for the leading roles in the six-part limited series.
Described as Bodyguard meets John Le Carre, Treason will be written and executive produced by Bridge of Spies’ Matt Charman, who will also serve as the showrunner. Fox Allan and Valery Ryan are set to executive produce, with Louise Hooper to helm the project. It is a production by Binocular Productions.
“The miniseries centers around Adam Lawrence, trained and groomed by MI6, whose career seems set,” reads the synopsis. “But when the past catches up with him in the form of Kara, a Russian spy with whom he shares a complicated past, he is forced to question everything and everyone in his life. A triangular relationship forms between Kara, Adam and his wife, Maddy; three people who are trying to expose each other’s secrets, navigate political and diplomatic relationships, whilst hanging onto their personal lives, and those they love most.”
Cox gained recognition for his fan-favorite role as Matt Murdock in Netflix’s Daredevil series, which lasted for four seasons from 2015-2018. He also recently starred in the AMC+ crime drama titled Kin.
