The Terminal List is Amazon Prime’s latest action series and delves into the gripping world of the US Navy SEALs. The SEALs are the US Navy’s primary special operations force and have been renowned as one of the world’s most lethal military units since their inception in 1962.
Having completed missions such as the assassination of Osama Bin Laden and the rescue of Captain Phillips, SEALs are a common feature when it comes to military themed movies and TV shows with productions such as American Sniper and Zero Dark Thirty captivating viewers.
The Terminal List is based on the 2018 novel of the same name by Jack Carr. Carr, a New York Times bestselling author, is a former SEAL himself and The Terminal List was the first of five books he has now written. Whilst this is a fictional novel, it is said to have many realistic elements which is unsurprising given Carr’s extensive military experience.
This first series has eight episodes and is one the most hotly anticipated new TV shows of the summer.
