Amazon Studios has made a new addition to the cast of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan to the third season with Deadline reporting Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Blindspot) will star alongside John Krasinski in the series.
Jean-Baptiste will play Elizabeth Wright, the Chief of Station, in a series regular role for the upcoming season. There is currently no production start date as they are likely awaiting the end of current lockdowns due to the health crisis, but the third season is expected to begin filming in 2021.
Jack Ryan follows the title-character as a CIA analyst working to stop terrorist attacks or other dangerous political operations worldwide. Author Tom Clancy introduced the character in his first book The Hunt for Red October, which was later turned into a film with Alec Baldwin as Ryan alongside the late Sean Connery as the Russian submarine commander Marko Ramius. Since then, the character has appeared in four other feature films with Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine taking on the role.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is a co-production between Amazon, Paramount and Skydance Television.
