Jensen Ackles (“Supernatural,” “The Boys”) leads the cast of Prime Video’s new series, “Countdown.” The series is from Derek Haas, behind hit shows like “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago PD,” and “FBI.”

The 13-episode first season kicks off with a seemingly ordinary event – a murder in broad daylight. Beneath the surface lurks something far more sinister. LAPD officer Mark Meachum (Ackles) finds himself drawn into the case and recruited for a special task force. This undercover unit unites law enforcement agents from various branches with one goal: unravel a large-scale conspiracy threatening millions.

This project marks a happy reunion for Ackles and Prime Video. Fans will remember his recent stint as the charismatic Soldier Boy in “The Boys,” whose new season kicks off on June 13th.

Derek Haas brings his talent for captivating narratives to “Countdown.” He serves as the showrunner and executive producer, crafting a story filled with nonstop action, heart-pounding drama, and surprising twists.

Jensen Ackles, best known for his iconic role as Dean Winchester in “Supernatural,” steps into the leading role. Ackles’s portrayal of the determined LAPD officer Meachum promises to be another captivating performance.

With a captivating premise, a talented cast, and a seasoned showrunner, “Countdown” has all the makings of a Prime Video hit. The exact release date has yet to be announced, so stay tuned for further updates.
