“Hanna” will end with its upcoming third season, Amazon Studios has confirmed with TheWrap.
Adapted from the Saoirse Ronan-starring 2011 film of the same name, the series was renewed in July 2020. The third and final season will debut on Nov. 24.
Esmé Creed-Miles reprises her role as Hanna, a teenage assassin raised in the wilderness of Eastern Europe and trained to kill by a secretive organization known as Utrax. In the upcoming season, Hanna attempts to take down Utrax from within to stop its leaders from deploying an army of brainwashed teen killers. Former CIA agent and archnemesis Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos) partners with Hanna to coerce Utrax agent John Carmichael (Dermot Mulroney) into furthering their mission. However, they must overcome major obstacles, namely her fellow assassins and military operative Gordon Evans (Ray Liotta, a newcomer to the cast).
Showrunner David Farr said that the show was always meant to end after three seasons.
“That was always the intention, to be honest,” he said. “If you look back at when I was talking about the second season, I talked about how it needed ‘the third act.’ I come from the theater originally, and I always have full act structure in my head to how a piece of drama plays out. And in this case, I felt that there was this very clear arc.”
The Season 3 trailer was unveiled at this year’s New York Comic Con. There, executive producer Tom Coan dropped some hints about the six-episode season.
“The journey is going to be bigger and better than before … everything lives at a much louder volume this year and it’s going to be exciting for audiences to see the next chapter of the story,” Coan said. “We had two intentions in making this show—to be more sophisticated and dynamic—and that was the centerpiece on which everything was built…”
“We operated on the principle of trying to make it as exciting as possible,” Coan added.
