You haven't seen the last of Jack Reacher! Amazon has officially handed down a second season renewal for its Lee Child-inspired series, Reacher, just three days after it premiered. Led by Titans fan favorite Alan Ritchson, the show is currently Prime Video's top television offering in the United States. In addition, Reacher is among the top five most-watched series in the platform's history with many viewers binging all eight episodes of the first season within the first 24 hours of their debut.
“The phenomenal debut of Reacher is a testament to Lee Child’s creation of one of entertainment’s most well-known heroes, Nick Santora’s original approach to the storytelling, Alan’s brilliant embodiment of the character, and the dedication of the talented people who worked tirelessly in front of and behind the camera to make such an undeniably bingeworthy series,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “The global impact of Reacher makes it one of Prime Video’s biggest series debuts, and we can’t wait to bring fans a second season of their new favorite show.”
“The entire Reacher team — cast, production, writers, etc. — is so happy with the wonderful reception the show has received,” added showrunner, writer, and executive producer Nick Santora (Scorpion, Prison Break). “Amazon, Skydance, and Paramount have been such fantastic partners and everyone is excited to roll up their sleeves and get to work on what will be a great Season 2.”
Based on The Killing Floor (the first Jack Reacher novel originally published in 1997), Season 1 co-stars Malcolm Goodwin (iZombie) as Oscar Finlay, Willa Fitzgerald (The Goldfinch) as Roscoe Conklin, Chris Webster (Most Dangerous Game) as KJ, Hugh Thompson (Blessed Stranger: After Flight 111) as Baker, Maria Sten (Swamp Thing) as Frances Neagley, Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows) as Jasper, Kristin Kreuk (Smallville) as Charlie, Currie Graham (Murder in the First) as Kliner Sr., Marc Bendavid (Dark Matter) as Hubble, Willie C. Carpenter (Devious Maids) as Mosley, Maxwell Jenkins (Lost in Space) as Young Reacher, and Bruce McGill (My Cousin Vinny) as Mayor Teale.
"Partnering with Amazon Studios for Season 1 of Reacher was a total delight — they had our backs every step of the way, and it really shows, in every line and every frame. So I'm thrilled we'll be working together again, for Season 2,” said Child, who is an executive producer. "This is very exciting news, and I can't wait to get started. Reacher couldn't be in better hands."
Don Granger, and Scott Sullivan, with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost are also executive producers.
All eight episodes of Reacher Season 1 are now streaming on Prime Video. The show marks the character's second appearance in live-action after two feature films in which he was played by Tom Cruise.
