Treadstone is an action drama tv show, created by Tim Kring. Originally produced for the USA Network, it is currently available to stream on Amazon Prime. It was developed as a prequel ( read spinoff ) to the famous Bourne movie series. It narrates the covert CIA operations which create recruits with nearly superhuman strengths. Treadstone Season 2 Coming Soon?
Treadstone uses behavior modification protocol to turn recruits into nearly superhuman assassins. The CIA calls them sleeper agents. After that, the CIA uses them to perform covert and deadly missions all over the globe.
Treadstone Season 2: Why Producers Cancelled it?
The cancellation of Treadstone marks a new dawn for the USA NETWORK. It is slowly but steadily shifting from scripted programs to live and unscripted programs ( WWE RAW).
Treadstone’s premiere episode attracted 645,000 live viewers and had pulled in a total of 1.84 million through delayed viewing by the following week. However, ratings had declined to 371,000 live viewers by the season finale. Also, critics gave mixed reviews to the show. Thus leading to its cancellation.
Probable Plot for Season 2
Treadstone season 1 ended with Petra Andropov confronting an older Bentley. Petra wants his help to bring down Treadstone.
We might have even seen the origins of the CIA’s Treadstone program, which was made in response to the KGB program Cicada. Also, it looked like Ellen Becker (Michelle Forbes) was hellbent to take over Treadstone and its assets.
Treadstone’s season 1 finale was spent setting things up for season 2 rather than wrapping up plot threads. So it’s very unfortunate for fans that the story will end there.
Treadstone Season 2: Release Date
Someday, we might see Treadstone getting its well-deserved revival. The story was a very intriguing one. And though some parts looked like a drag, it was one of the best prequels a movie could’ve received.
