It’s been over four years since Variety exclusively reported the news that a TV series based on James Patterson’s “Alex Cross” books was in the works. Finally, fans have a first look at Aldis Hodge in the title role.

Amazon released a trailer for “Cross” at its 2024 upfront presentation, during which the company also confirmed previous reports that the series had already scored a Season 2 renewal.

“Cross,” which will premiere on Prime Video later this year, stars Aldis Hodge as a detective and forensic psychologist known for his ability to dig into the psyches of criminals and their victims. The cast also includes Isaiah Mustafa, Juanita Jennings, Alona Tal, Samantha Walkes, Caleb Elijah, Melody Hurd, Jennifer Wigmore, Eloise Mumford, Ryan Eggold and Johnny Ray Gill. Season 2 will see the addition of Wes Chatham, Matthew Lillard and Jeanine Mason, with Gill being upped to a series regular.




at its inaugural upfront presentation, Prime Video revealed the official teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Amazon Original Series Cross along with the series’ renewal for a second season. From Paramount Television Studios and Skydance Television, Cross is a complex, twisted, pulse-pounding thriller created by Ben Watkins, based upon the characters from James Patterson’s best-selling Alex Cross book series. Joining the season two cast are Wes Chatham (The Expanse, Ahsoka), Matthew Lillard (Five Nights at Freddy’s), and Jeanine Mason (Grey’s Anatomy); Johnny Ray Gill (Underground) will be upped to a series regular role. The first season of Cross will premiere later this year exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. Prime has all your entertainment and streaming needs in a single membership.


Alex Cross is a detective and forensic psychologist, uniquely capable of digging into the psyches of killers and their victims, in order to identify—and ultimately capture—the murderers. Aldis Hodge stars as the titular character and also serves as a producer on the series. Cross also stars Isaiah Mustafa, Juanita Jennings, Alona Tal, Samantha Walkes, Caleb Elijah, Melody Hurd, Jennifer Wigmore, Eloise Mumford, and Ryan Eggold.


“Bringing one of James Patterson’s most iconic literary characters to life for our global Prime Video customers was a dream come true, and we can’t wait for everyone to see Aldis Hodge’s dynamic performance as Cross,” said Vernon Sanders, head of television, Amazon MGM Studios. “Ben Watkins and his team have created something unique within the crime-thriller genre that long-time fans and newcomers alike will all enjoy. And with over thirty novels written by Patterson featuring Alex Cross as his main protagonist, it was an easy choice to bring Cross back for a second season.”


"I am thrilled to be embarking on another chapter of Cross. Moments like this don't happen by accident,” says Ben Watkins, creator and showrunner of Cross. “Getting a Season 2 pick-up before our first season even drops is a huge testament and vote of confidence in the amazing work that our crew, cast, directors, writers and production team have delivered thus far. It's also a direct result of the unwavering support bestowed upon us by Prime Video and our producing partners at Paramount TV Studios, Skydance and James Patterson Entertainment. I am grateful for all of the above and can't wait to run it back even bigger and better."


For season one, Ben Watkins serves as showrunner and executive producer. Jim Dunn, Sam Ernst and Craig Siebels also serve as executive producers with James Patterson, Bill Robinson, Patrick Santa executive producing on behalf of James Patterson Entertainment and David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Matt Thunell executive producing on behalf of Skydance Television.


In season 2, Dunn and Ernst have been elevated to co-showrunners joining Watkins. J. David Shanks, Aiyana White, and Aldis Hodge are added to the season 2 executive producing team.


Cross is produced by Amazon MGM Studios, Paramount Television Studios, and Skydance Television.
