Just watching Amazon’s teaser trailer for Season 2 of “Jack Ryan” might make you out of breath — imagine how John Krasinski feels.
Amazon Prime Video released the sneak peek for the second season of “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” during its busy Saturday morning at the Television Critics Association press tour.
Here’s how Amazon says the sophomore run — pun only kind of intended — will go down:
In the second season of “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” after tracking a potentially suspicious shipment of illegal arms in the Venezuelan jungle, CIA Officer Jack Ryan, portrayed by John Krasinski (“A Quiet Place”), heads down to South America to investigate.
As Jack’s investigation threatens to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy, the President of Venezuela launches a counter-attack that hits home for Jack, leading him and his fellow operatives on a global mission spanning the United States, UK, Russia, and Venezuela to unravel the President’s nefarious plot and bring stability to a country on the brink of chaos.
“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” is co-produced by Paramount Television and Skydance Television. In addition to Krasinski, the second season also stars Wendell Pierce (“The Wire”) as James Greer, Noomi Rapace (“Prometheus”) as Harriet ‘Harry’ Baumann and Michael Kelly (“House of Cards”) as Mike November.
The show is executive produced by Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, Michael Bay, Krasinski and Allyson Seeger, along with Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, who created the series for television.
Additionally, Andrew Bernstein, Vince Calandra, David Graziano, Tom Clancy, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross, Mace Neufeld, Lindsey Springer, Dennie Gordon and Phil Abraham also executive produce Season 2.
Krasinski, who first rose to fame as Jim from NBC’s “The Office,” signed a three-year first-look deal with Amazon Studios earlier this week through his Sunday Night production banner. Under the agreement, Krasinksi, alongside his partner, Allyson Seeger, and their production and development executive, Alexa Ginsburg, will develop television series for the studio.
