The series follows new sleeper agents across the globe as they’re mysteriously “awakened” to resume their deadly missions.
The ensemble cast is led by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) as J. Randolph Bentley, a CIA spy sent to eliminate a key target, and Brian J. Smith (Sense8) as Doug McKenna, an oil-rig worker whose life changes after some truths about who he is come to light. Treadstone will also feature Omar Metwally (The Affair) as Mr. Edwards, Tracy Ifeachor (Quantico) as Tara Coleman, South Korean actress Han Hyo Joo (Cold Eyes, The Beauty Inside) as So-Yun, Gabrielle Scharnitzky (The Game) as Petra, Emilia Schüle (Berlin Station), Michelle Forbes (The Killing) as Ellen Becker, Patrick Fugit (Outcast) as Stephen Haynes, Michael Gaston (The Leftovers) as Dan Levine, Tess Haubrich (Alien: Covenant) as Samantha McKenna and Shruti Haasan as Nira Patel.
