When Can We Expect to See Reacher Season 2 on Amazon Prime Video?
After a brief pause following Tom Cruise’s portrayal of Jack Reacher, the action-adventure series is back on our screens. However, the screens are a little smaller this time around due to the fact that Reacher is now available as a TV show on Amazon Prime Video.
Despite this, Reacher himself is now more popular than ever, thanks to the addition of Alan Ritchson to the main cast. While the Titans actor is only 6 feet 2 inches tall, he is closer to the character’s formidable 6 foot 5 inches in the novels. He certainly puts that mass to good use in the first season of Reacher.
But what about the second season of Reacher? Was there a sequel planned for Amazon’s Lee Child adaptation? Get your reading glasses ready, because we’re going to break down everything you need to know about Reacher season two, which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Reacher Season 2 Cast
Reacher season one featured a vast ensemble cast that included, but was not limited to, the following actors:
- Malcolm Goodwin in the role of Oscar Finley
- Willa Fitzgerald in the role of Roscoe Conklin
- Kristin Kreuk in the role of Charlie
- Harvey Guillén as Jasper
However, based on how the season finale concluded, it appears that Alan Ritchson, who plays Reacher himself, will be the only cast member who can be counted on to return. At least until some odd recasting shenanigans take place behind the scenes, which is quite unlikely.
When Reacher was renewed for a second season so quickly, Ritchson responded with the following statement on Instagram:
“Whoaaaaaa!!! This is just great! I’m completely dumbfounded, in contrast to Reacher, who chooses to say nothing. In just our first weekend, you’ve helped to make #ReacheronPrime one of the most-watched shows on @primevideo ever! That is completely ridiculous.
This show would not be as entertaining if it weren’t for the many people who have contributed to its success. However, all of the creative creativity and unshakable passion on the part of everyone involved would be for naught if you weren’t immersed in the world of Reacher. Thank you so much, thank you so much.”
The possibility exists that Maxwell Jenkins will return as a Young Reacher in additional flashbacks in the future, but if he begins to age too quickly, the production team may decide to replace him for season two if they want to show more about Reacher’s youth.
(To be honest, now that the fundamentals have been established, it’s unlikely — Lee Child doesn’t provide Reacher with much more backstory than you’ve previously seen, with the exception of the books set during his military service).
Reacher Season 2 Plot
Jack’s search for the person who murdered his brother dominated the first season of Reacher, which concluded with a case that was essentially closed by the final episode.
As soon as the mystery is discovered, Reacher resolves to split ways with Margrave in order to pursue new opportunities, despite Roscoe’s wishes to stay. After that, she hands Jack a Clark chocolate wrapper with her phone number written on it. “If you wander back, give me a call,” she says.
After saying his final goodbyes, Reacher inters a medal (which holds a great lot of sentimental importance) in the grave of his brother. And then, wiping away his sorrows, Jack embarks on a hitchhiking journey to find new pastures.
Though there are three prequels from which season two might draw inspiration, the majority of the season two tale will most likely be based on Lee Child’s second Jack Reacher novel, Die Trying, which will serve as the basis for the most of the season two-story.
The tale begins with a surprise kidnapping, which leads to the discovery of… We don’t want to give anything away, so we won’t say anything. Just keep in mind that there’s still plenty of source material for Reacher to examine in future seasons — in total, 26 novels to choose from.
When asked by Radio Times which novel she would like to see adapted next, Child responded as follows:
“I haven’t read any of the books yet. I’ve already written them. I never went back and reread them. I’m familiar with them because of their reputation, or what other people have told me about them. There are some that are really popular as well.
Moreover, I believe that what was so wonderful about the first season was how Reacher’s loneliness was alleviated by his relationships with other people, and I would like to see more of that in the future seasons. In that regard, there are two or three words that stand out particularly well. So it’s possible that one of them is.”
The child is content no matter what occurs. When Reacher’s contract with Amazon was formally renewed, the author issued the following comment in an official statement:
“Working with Amazon Studios on season one of Reacher was a total pleasure — they were there for us at every step of the journey, and it shows in every word and frame of the program. As a result, I’m happy that we’ll be collaborating once more for season two. This is extremely fantastic news, and I can’t wait to get started on it right away! Reacher couldn’t be in better hands than he is right now.”
Reacher Season 2 Release Date
Reacher has been renewed for a second season, which was revealed just three days after the premiere of season one.
According to Amazon (via Deadline), Reacher ranks in the top five most-watched programs in the company’s history, both in the United States and globally, over a 24-hour period. It is also well-liked by users, so the fact that it was renewed so quickly shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Because of the quick turnaround on the announcement, we expect new episodes to be released in early 2023, or possibly as early as summer 2023 if we’re really pushing it.
Reacher Season 2 Trailer
Speculation that fresh Reacher season two footage will be released in the weeks leading up to the premiere of the season is not outlandish at this point. It is therefore expected to happen in early 2023.
