In an attempt to lift himself back up to his former glory, he reluctantly takes a case that is everything but ordinary. This case could set him back on track towards redemption or at the very least show up the law firm that let him go.

3) Jack Ryan

It is a love it or hate it kind of show, but unfortunately for fans of Patriot the show was cancelled just after a mere two seasons. There wasn’t a reason provided by Amazon for the cancellation, but that didn’t stop fans from speculating that the show won’t be returning due to the star actor departing from the show.
