History is repeating itself for Amazon’s Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan as the streaming service has renewed the series for a third season ahead of the second season’s premiere. The series is based on Tom Clancy’s CIA analyst character and stars John Krasinski (A Quiet Place) in the lead role.
The second season will pit him against the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America. Production on the new season will begin this summer in South America, Europe and North America.
Jack Ryan proved to be quite a hit for Amazon as the tracking data showed 37% of Amazon Video viewers watched the series in the first month following its premiere, which is a huge increase on the average audience share of 9% for new shows. It was Amazon’s biggest launch for a new series yet. Season two will premiere later this year.
For fans of Tom Clancy’s work, this isn’t the only piece from the late author that is currently being adapted. Michael B. Jordan (Creed) is set to star as CIA black-ops specialist John Clark in Without Remorse, which will see release in 2020. Paramount hopes to use Without Remorse as a springboard for other Clancy works, most notably Rainbow Six starring Jordan.
When CIA analyst Jack Ryan stumbles upon a suspicious series of bank transfers his search for answers pulls him from the safety of his desk job and catapults him into a deadly game of cat and mouse throughout Europe and the Middle East, with a rising terrorist figurehead preparing for a massive attack against the US and her allies.
The first season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is available now on Amazon Prime.
