Amazon has greenlit a second series of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan ahead of its global series debut set for 31st August on Prime Video.
The series, produced by Paramount Television and Skydance Television, stars John Krasinski as Clancy’s CIA analyst and is billed as a “a reinvention with a modern sensibility” of the character.
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.
“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 Executive Producer Carlton 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.”
