'Hanna' starring Esme Creed-Miles and Joel Kinnaman has been renewed for a second season, here's everything you need to know.
'Hanna', the Amazon TV series premiered on March 29 to a positive response and the makers of the show announced recently that the Esme-Creed Miles, Joel Kinnaman, and Mireille Enos starrer has been renewed for a second season. The announcement came on the heels of the show's premiere and the cast also shared the happy news on their social media handles. The first season was based on the 2011 movie 'Hanna' directed by Joe Wright. David Farr, who co-wrote the film also worked on Hanna and developed it into an eight-episode action-drama and a coming-of-age story of a teenage assassin.
'Hanna' season 2 will release on July 3 on Amazon Prime Video and the show will consist of eight episodes.
The official plot for season 2 reads, "Following her discovery at the end of Season 1, Hanna (Esmé Creed-Miles) now knows she is not the only young woman with unparalleled skill and elite training. The Utrax program has produced a whole contingent of highly skilled trainees, whose development is about to reach the lethal 'second phase'. After their relocation to The Meadows facility, these trainees find their restrictions lifted and glimpse the possibility of a new identity in the outside world. But this apparent freedom will come at a heavy price."
In addition, "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). Hanna finds help in the unlikely form of her previous nemesis, CIA agent Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos), who must protect both herself and Hanna from the ruthless organization she once trusted. Yet as Hanna delves deeper into the elusive world of The Meadows and meets others like herself, including Sandy (Áine Rose Daly) and Jules (Gianna Kiehl), she begins to question her role in the larger context of Utrax’s assassin program and ultimately, where she truly belongs."
Esme Creed-Miles as Hanna
Esme Creed-Miles plays the titular role in the series. She is a teenager who is trained by her father to escape any dangerous situation that could arise in the future in case Hanna comes in contact with other humans. After rebelling against her father and crossing the boundary set by him, Hanna begins to learn the truth about her past, her father's reality and the reason why they are being chased across countries over the eight episodes of the first season. She will reprise her role in season 2 as well.
Mireille Enos as special agent Marissa Wiegler
Mireille Enos was initially expected to be the antagonist of the show as agent Marissa Wiegler. She has now understood that there is a secret about the facility in Romania that even she is unaware of and towards the end of Season 1, she tries to uncover the secret. She is expected to continue on this path in the upcoming season of the Amazon show.
Khalid Abdalla as Jerome Sawyer
Khalid Abdalla plays the role of a recurring character Jerome Sawyer, but we expect Jerome to continue to play a crucial role in the upcoming season as his connection to Utrax will be expanded upon. Marissa is expected to use his assistance forcefully or otherwise to learn the truth.
Dermot Mulroney as John Carmichael
Actor Dermot Mulroney plays the role of John Carmichael in the show and he leads The Meadows facility at the moment. He is also responsible for bringing Hanna back into the fold as we see him welcome her to the facility and encourage other girls at the facility to welcome her as well. However, he is the bad guy that Hanna must be aware of while planning her escape from The Meadows.
The trailer of 'Hanna' was released on Wednesday and it reveals how Hanna will see herself go back to where it all began -- The Meadows facility. For Hanna to give up on her freedom to extract her friend Clara from the clutches of the secret program, Clara's importance in Hanna's life is clear. We also see how Hanna assimilates herself at The Meadows and becomes a part of the army of women who are being trained to kill on command. The trailer also hints at how she plans on starting a revolution within the facility by convincing other women of how they are being manipulated. However, things might not go according to plan.
While the makers announced the season renewal of the show, Albert Cheng, the co-head of Television, Amazon Studios said to Deadline, "Since it debuted only ten days ago, Hanna has had a tremendous response, and we’re thrilled with not only how it has performed for us on the service, but with the action-packed world David Farr has created for the series and the stellar cast, led by Esmé Creed-Miles, Mireille Enos, and Joel Kinnaman. We’re excited to give fans a chance to see Hanna continue her journey on Amazon."
