“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” has been renewed for a second season ahead of its Season 1 release, Amazon Studios said Tuesday.
“With so much early anticipation for ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’ from our customers and personally having the pleasure to preview the exhilarating, action-packed first season, we are excited to greenlight a second season of the series months ahead of its debut,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios.
“The new season will take our unexpected hero to a new, exciting and dangerous world,” she added.
The series is a “reinvention” of the hero played by John Krasinski, who will also executive produce. In Season 2, Krasinski will be joined by Wendell Pierce (“The Wire”), who will reprise his role as John Greer in the eight-episode run.
The show is executive produced by co-showrunners and creators Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, and comes from Paramount Television and Skydance Television.
“We’re thrilled that the first season has generated so much enthusiasm,” said Cuse. “We couldn’t be happier to be working with Amazon and to be filming very near the Amazon to tell the next great Jack Ryan adventure.”
“From day one we only had one actor on our casting board for this series – John Krasinski,” said president of Paramount Television Amy Powell. “We are so excited that he is our Jack Ryan and we get to make another season with this incredibly talented team. We have been blown away by what our whole team has delivered for season one and we can’t wait for everyone to see it this summer.”
