Amazon Renews Prime Original, "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan," for Second Season on Prime Video Ahead of August 31 Global Series Debut, from Paramount Television, Skydance Television and Platinum Dunes
SEATTLE -- (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced it has greenlit season two of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan ahead of its global series debut set for August 31 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 season two, Jack Ryan confronts the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America. The second season commences production this summer in Europe, South America and the United States.
After Amazon's Super Bowl ads, Amazon saw a more than 400% increase in Prime members placing Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan on their watchlist.
"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 season of the series months ahead of its debut," said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. "The new season will take our unexpected hero to a new, exciting and dangerous world."
"We're thrilled that the first season 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 season with this incredibly talented team. We have been blown away by what our whole team has delivered for season 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 season with Allyson Seeger serving as a co-executive producer.
