Whether there are any more Bourne films on the horizon remains to be seen, but it seems that there’s still more of the universe to explore, as new drama Treadstone has landed a straight-to-series order on the USA Network.
The series, which was ordered to pilot back in April, is set to centre on the fictional CIA black ops program Operation Treadstone that created super-spy Jason Bourne.
The program uses behavioural modification tools to turn recruits into superior assassins, and the first season of the series will follow sleeper agents across the globe as they are awakened to resume their missions.
Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment said of the deal, “As the #1 cable entertainment network for the past 12 years, USA Network is delivering a dynamic lineup of big, bold programming – and what could be bigger and bolder than the Treadstone mythology?”
So, with John Wick spinoff The Continental and this coming soon, it seems that the age of the super assassin is upon us.
Treadstone will go into production in 2019.
