Amazon has announced it has greenlit series two of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan ahead of its global series debut set for 31st August on Prime Video. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, from Paramount Television and Skydance Television, is a reinvention with a modern sensibility of the famed and lauded Tom Clancy hero played by John Krasinski (A Quiet Place, 13 Hours). The creators of the series, Executive Producers Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Graham Roland (Fringe, Prison Break), will continue to serve as Co-Showrunners. Additionally, Krasinski, who also serves as an Executive Producer, will be reunited with Wendell Pierce (The Wire) who will reprise his role as James Greer in the eight-episode second season.
In series two, 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.
After Amazon’s Super Bowl advert, Amazon saw a more than 400% increase in Prime members placing Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan on their watch list.
“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.”
“From day one we only had one actor on our casting board for this series – John Krasinski,” said Amy Powell, President of Paramount Television. “We are so excited that he is our Jack Ryan and we get to make another series with this incredibly talented team. We have been blown away by what our whole team has delivered for series one and we can’t wait for everyone to see it this summer.”
The show is produced by Paramount Television, Cuse’s Genre Arts, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and David Ellison’s Skydance Television. Executive producing along with Cuse, Roland and Krasinski are Platinum Dune’s Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. Additionally, Lindsey Springer, Mace Neufeld, Vince Calandra, Andrew Bernstein and Skydance’s Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross will also executive produce the second series with Allyson Seeger serving as a co-executive producer.
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. Members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership.
