‘Reacher’ Renewed For Season 2 at Amazon Prime Video
Jack Reacher will be returning to Amazon for more crime-solving hi-jinx as the streamer picks up the action thriller series for a second season.
The first season of Reacher premiered on Prime Video on February 4, and according to Amazon, it is already one of their top five most-watched shows of all time. The series, written and produced by Nick Santora (The Fugitive) and based on Lee Child’s best-selling novel series, has also received positive feedback from fans and critics.
Season 1 is based on the debut novel in the series Killing Floor, which was released in 1997, and follows former U.S. Army military police investigator Jack Reacher (played by Titans actor Alan Ritchson) as he returns to civilian life. When he visits the small town of Margrave, Georgia, he quickly becomes entangled in a brutal criminal conspiracy when he is falsely accused of murder.
“The phenomenal debut of Reacher is a testament to Lee Child’s creation of one of entertainment’s most well-known heroes, Nick Santora’s original approach to the storytelling, Alan’s brilliant embodiment of the character, and the dedication of the talented people who worked tirelessly in front of and behind the camera to make such an undeniably bingeworthy series,” said Head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke (via Variety).
Santora, who serves as showrunner, added, “The entire Reacher team—cast, production, writers, etc.—is so happy with the wonderful reception the show has received. Amazon, Skydance, and Paramount have been such fantastic partners and everyone is excited to roll up their sleeves and get to work on what will be a great Season Two.”
In addition to Ritchson, the series also stars Malcolm Goodwin (iZombie) as Oscar Finlay, Willa Fitzgerald (Scream) as Roscoe Conklin, Chris Webster as KJ, Bruce McGill (Suits) as Grover Teale, Maria Sten (Swamp Thing) as Frances Neagley, and Maxwell Jenkins as Young Reacher.
“Partnering with Amazon Studios for season one of Reacher was a total delight – they had our backs every step of the way, and it really shows, in every line and every frame. So I’m thrilled we’ll be working together again, for season two,” said Childs. “This is very exciting news, and I can’t wait to get started. Reacher couldn’t be in better hands.”
