Author Lee Child has become a staple of the book community with his popular Jack Reacher series. The novels have been turned into feature films starring Tom Cruise, and a television show is currently available on Prime Video. The television series stars Alan Ritchson as the titular Jack Reacher, and the show was renewed for Season 2 almost immediately after the first season started airing episodes last year.
What makes the Prime Video version of Reacher so different from the movie adaptations of the Jack Reacher franchise is the fact that actor Alan Ritchson fits the bill as the tall, authority figure. Reacher is built from the premise that Jack Reacher is a former U.S. Army policeman caught up in a conspiracy involving corruption and fellow police officers. He has a strong sense of self and justice for those wronged, leading him down dangerous paths.
The first season of Reacher was enjoyed by critics and audiences alike. Rotten Tomatoes currently ranks the series with a Tomatometer score of 92% and an Average Audience Score of 91%. Reacher Season 2 promises some outlandish storylines and more tangled webs of deceit.
Here is everything we know about Reacher Season 2.
REACHER SEASON 2 WILL PREMIERE IN 2023
Reacher initially debuted on Prime Video in February 2022 and was quickly renewed for Season 2 a few days after its premiere on the streamer. Prime Video has seen great success in the last couple of years with The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and the winding down of its staple series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Filming on Reacher season 2 began back in September 2022 and is still in production. While the first season aired almost a year ago, season 2 seems to be taking some time to wrap up shooting on location. According to an interview that Amazon Studios’ Head of Television, Vernon Sanders, gave to Collider, the series will return sometime in 2023.
Alan Ritchson confirmed that shooting for Reacher Season 2 had begun last fall with a funny Instagram video highlighting the show’s penchant for making everything “bigger and better than ever.” Carrying around a clapperboard to mark the official start of filming, Ritchson keeps bringing on larger and larger clapperboards to show off how huge the character of Jack Reacher is to audiences.
Due to a hectic schedule at Prime Video, with The Boys launching Season 4 in 2023 and Jennifer Lopez debuting Shotgun Wedding this month, there has yet to be a definitive premiere date set for Reacher season 2. However, fans of the series should expect to watch Jack Reacher uncover new corruption, hopefully in the first half of 2023.
