‘Reacher’ Renewed For Season 2 At Amazon

Jack Reacher is returning. Amazon has renewed the action drama series Reacher for a second season.

This news comes less than a week after the streamer debuted the Lee Child adaptation. Reacher quickly ranked top five most-watched series ever in the United States and globally over a 24-hour period. Reacher was also among the streamer’s highest-rated originals, with book fans and critics, including Child himself, giving multiple stamps of approval – read our review here.

“Partnering with Amazon Studios for season one 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 two. This is very exciting news, and I can’t wait to get started. Reacher couldn’t be in better hands,” said Child.


The series follows a veteran military police investigator named Jack who has just recently entered civilian life. Jack travels the country and explores the nation he once served before reaching the small town of Margrave, Georgia where he finds a community grappling with its first homicide in 20 years.

The cops immediately arrest him, and eyewitnesses claim to place Jack at the scene of the crime. While he works to prove his innocence, a deep-seated conspiracy begins to emerge, one that will require Jack’s keen mind and hard-hitting fists to deal with. One thing above all is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to take the fall.

Season one of the series is based on Child’s first Jack Reacher novel Killing Floor.  Playing the titular role is Alan Ritchson, a fine choice as the veteran military police investigator.

Joining him in the series is Malcolm Goodwin as Oscar Finlay, Willa Fitzgerald as Roscoe Conklin, Chris Webster as KJ, Hugh Thompson as Baker, Maria Sten as Frances Neagley, Harvey Guillén as Jasper, Kristin Kreuk as Charlie, Currie Graham as Kliner Sr., Marc Bendavid as Hubble, Willie C. Carpenter as Mosley, Maxwell Jenkins as Young Reacher, and Bruce McGill as Mayor Teale.

Nick Santora serves as the show’s showrunner and produces alongside Child, Don Granger, and Scott Sullivan.
