Fans troll 'woke brigade' after Chris Pratt's 'The Terminal List' gets renewed for Season 2
There was a time when movies and TV shows were made for pure entertainment. However, in recent years, we have seen a lot of networks and streaming platforms coming out with titles that are stuffed with political agendas. There is a huge gap between how critics are viewing a show and how viewers are engaging with it. One such show that managed to do the same is Amazon’s ‘The Terminal List’ and even though critics slammed the series for being too grim and boneheaded, fans were extremely positive toward the show and made it one of the most-watched TV series of 2022. So, it doesn’t come as a shock that Amazon has renewed the series for a second season.
Starring Chris Pratt in the lead role, the show is all about a Navy SEAL James Reece, who comes home after his crew is ambushed while on a secret mission. Soon, he realizes that things are even worse than he imagined as he starts getting new evidence about what went wrong during the mission. While the first season wasn’t well-received by the critics, it managed to create a lot of impact on viewers and currently holds an audience rating of 94% on the review site Rotten Tomatoes. So much love from the audience is one of the biggest reasons why Amazon thought of taking the story forward and expanding the universe in the biggest way possible.

The first season of ‘The Terminal List’ consisted of eight episodes and is based on Jack Carr’s 2018 novel of the same name. The show opened to scathing reviews from the critics and was dubbed an “unhinged right-wing revenge fantasy’. However, these reviews didn’t have a long-lasting impact on the minds of the viewers because they tuned in to watch the show in large numbers. In terms of watch time, the series put up monstrous viewership numbers and was seen for more than 1.6 billion minutes, making it one of the most-watched series of 2022.
Season 1 of ‘The Terminal List’ is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video
