XIII: The Series segue la ricerca di un uomo per scoprire la verità sulla sua identità. Il nome è XIII (Stuart Townsend), dalla cifra romana tatuata sul suo collo: XIII è un ex-agente segreto che non ricorda più il suo passato, ed è ricercato da un’oscura organizzazione anti-governativa, per cui andrà alla ricerca di tracce che lo condurranno al segreto che lo rende così importante, e potenzialmente così pericoloso. Per ottenere informazioni, l’abile ed addestrato XIII dovrà accettare missioni dalle persone di cui non si fida, tra cui l’ex-presidente Wally Sheridan (Ted Atherton), un possibile traditore. A complicare le cose, XIII è diviso tra due donne: Sam (Caterina Murino), sua amica e alleata, e la misteriosa Jones (Aisha Tyler), agente dei servizi segreti con cui XIII ha avuto una storia in passato. Il telefilm vede la partecipazione di buona parte di cast e troupe che avevano già lavorato nella miniserie del 2008 “XIII – Il complotto”, basata sull’omonima serie a fumetti e sull’omonimo videogame.
