A second season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan has been announced before the first season has even premiered.

The new series, which is set to debut on 31st August, is a reinvention of Tom Clancy’s iconic hero Jack Ryan. John Krasinski (The Office, A Quiet Place) plays the titular character and the show is executive produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Graham Roland (Fringe, Prison Break), who are also the show’s co-showrunners.

Wendell Pierce (The Wire) will also reprise his role as James Greer in the second season.

 

In the eight episode second season, Jack Ryan confronts the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America. The second series commences production this summer in Europe, South America and the United States.

“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 series months ahead of its debut,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “The new series will take our unexpected hero to a new, exciting and dangerous world.”

“We’re thrilled that the first series has generated so much enthusiasm,” stated Cuse. “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.”

Prime members will be able to stream Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan exclusively via the Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online at Amazon.co.uk/Originals.
