The world of Jason Bourne is now all set to expand its universe. Coming to the small screen this fall in USA Network’s Treadstone, and EW presents the first exclusive look at the sleeper agents in 10 action-packed episodes.

Executive producer Ben Smith, who also served as producer of Jason Bourne and The Bourne Legacy, shared insight into the drama and how its storyline weaves into those from the films.

The Tim Kring developed series, premiering in October, stars Brian J. Smith, Jeremy Irvine, Michelle Forbes, Omar Metwally, Tracy Ifeachor, Han Hyo-joo, Gabrielle Scharnitzky, Michael Gaston, Shruti Haasan, and Emilia Schüle.

Ben Smith said that Treadstone was a top-secret black-ops program that used different forms of behavioral modification and extreme training to recruit members into super-human weapons. Treadstone was formed as a response to a Congressional Act which banned assassinations. Treadstone was officially closed after the events surrounding Jason Bourne were exposed. Their series starts when the CIA learns that someone is “waking up” these agents in different parts of the world that were part of a Treadstone program called “Cicada”.

He added: These Cicadas have very different trajectories upon finding themselves “awakened” over a decade after volunteering for a black-ops program of which they have no memory. Their ordinary cover lives, which they believed to be real, are thrown into chaos when they are activated to perform deadly missions. Their journey will take viewers on a thrilling ride as they uncover the truth.

The events from Jason Bourne’s story are definitely present as they had a long-lasting impact on the CIA and many of their characters.
