Ahead of its season 2 debut, Amazon has renewed “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” for a third season.
Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios made the announcement Wednesday during the Television Critics Association press tour.
The series is a “reinvention” of the Tom Clancy hero played by John Krasinski, who also executive produces. The pseudo-adaptation sees the former “Office” star step into the role that’s been inhabited previously in films by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine. Though unlike those other four, the Amazon series is not a direct adaptation of any specific Clancy novel.
Last April, a few months before its series premiere, Amazon gave “Jack Ryan” a second season. Season 1 was released on August 31.
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, along with new cast members Michael Kelly, Noomi Rapace and John Hoogenakker.
The show is executive produced by co-showrunners and creators Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, and comes from Paramount Television and Skydance Television.
“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” is produced by Paramount Television, Cuse’s Genre Arts, Michael BayPlatinum Dunes and David Ellison’s Skydance Television. Along with Cuse, Roland and Krasinski, Platinum Dune’s Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller also executive produce. Lindsey Springer, Mace Neufeld, Vince Calandra, Andrew Bernstein and Skydance’s Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross will executive produce the second season with Allyson Seeger as a co-executive producer.
