The second season of 'Hanna' is quite the opposite of the first season, in which we saw Hanna continually attempt to avoid coming in contact with anyone from the CIA. Of course, things don't go as planned and by the end of the season Hanna's father, who trained her in the middle of a forest in Eastern Europe is severely injured and even succumbs to his injury. The first season treated 'Hanna' as a coming of age story of a teenager who had never known a life led by 'normal' teenagers.

In the second season, she goes against everything that her father thought her. She intentionally gets captured and brought in by John Carmichael who heads the Meadows facility at the moment. He brings Hanna in to get trained with other teenagers already at the facility. Carmichael believes Hanna is giving in, and that she doesn't want to live a life away from the eyes of the CIA. He is not aware of Hanna's real plan, however, and that is what will add to the tone of thrill and excitement to the show. 

According to the official synopsis, "Hanna risks her freedom to rescue her friend Clara (Yasmin Monet Prince) from the clutches of the Utrax program, now run by John Carmichael (Dermot Mulroney) and his second in command, Leo Garner (Anthony Welsh)." She needs help if Hanna hopes to find a way out and from the trailer, it also seems as if Hanna not only attempts to rescue her friend Clara but also tries to convince the others in the facility to break free as well. 

Another surprising aspect of the show is how Hanna's ally this season is someone she had tried her best to avoid last season. Turns out that CIA agent Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos) has found out that the organization she once trusted is nothing but ruthless. Now, she must protect both herself and Hanna from this institution. She also ends up investigating the Meadow facility and Carmichael further to find out things that she hadn't realized before. 

Meanwhile, Hanna also delves deeper into the elusive world of The Meadows where she meets other girls, like herself. This includes Sandy (Áine Rose Daly) and Jules (Gianna Kiehl) and it is in coming in contact with them that Hanna begins to doubt her own plans. She also begins to question the role that she plays, if she were to look at the bigger picture -- that of Utrax’s assassin program and ultimately, where she truly belongs.

'Hanna' Season 2 will premiere on July 3 and all episodes can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video.
