Charlie Cox in Treason on NetflixNetflix

Here’s everything we know about Treason, Charlie Cox’s new MI6 thriller on Netflix, from its release date and trailer to cast, plot, and more.

After the cancelation of Netflix’s Daredevil following Season 3, Charlie Cox’s career somewhat slowed down somewhat. He appeared in elderly Brit crime caper King of Thieves and Irish drama Kin, but he was mostly absent form the screen.

Then came Spider-Man: No Way Home, marking the beginning of Cox’s Marvel comeback as Matt Murdock, with the actor set to reprise his role in Daredevil: Born Again and Spider-Man 4.

  • Oona Chaplin as Maddy De Costa, Adam’s wife
  • Olga Kurylenko as Kara Yerzov, a Russian spy

  • Danila Kozlovsky as Lord Anton Melnikov, a Russian national working in the UK
  • Adam James as Patrick Hamilton, Adam’s friend and colleague

In an interview with What To Watch, Cox said: “Adam’s a high-flyer who has progressed up the ranks of M16 quickly.

“He’s got a lot going for him in terms of his experience, expertise, and charisma, and his relationships within the agency. And he has a beautiful family, with daughter Ella and son Callum, and a loving relationship with his wife, Maddy.

“Adam was previously on active duty out in Baku in Azerbaijan and wherever else he was posted, and I can’t help feeling that those situations are messy. The expression: ‘You have to break a few eggs to make an omelette’ is probably quite apt. Ultimately there were bad decisions made, and Adam has to be held accountable for them.”
