Amazon renews Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan for second season
In season two, Jack Ryan confronts the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America
Amazon just dropped the exciting news as it announces that it has greenlit season two of 'Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan' ahead of its global series debut set for August 31 on Prime Video. Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, from Paramount Television and Skydance Television, is a reinvention with a modern sensibility of the famed and lauded Tom Clancy hero played by John Krasinski (A Quiet Place, 13 Hours).
The series will see the return of executive producers Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland. In season two, Jack Ryan confronts the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America. The second season will start its production this summer in Europe, South America, and the United States.
Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, said that the company was happy to greenlight the production of season two ahead of its premiere. “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,” he said.
“The new season will take our unexpected hero to a new, exciting and dangerous world.” Even Carlton was happy to see the response the series got for its first season. We’re thrilled that the first season has generated so much enthusiasm,” he said.
“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," he continued. Meanwhile, Amy Powell, President of Paramount Television revealed that John was always the first choice to play the role. “From day one we only had one actor on our casting board for this series – John Krasinski," she said.
“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.” The first season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan will be globally released on August 31 and available on PrimeVideo.com for Prime Video members in more than 200 countries and territories.
