Coming to the streaming service in March, Hanna is an adaptation of the 2011 action thriller. The series, which reunites stars of The Killing, Mireille Enos (Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, World War Z) and Joel Kinnaman (Altered Carbon, Suicide Squad, House of Cards), and features newcomer Esme Creed-Miles (Dark River, Pond Life, Mister Lonely), is directed by Sarah Adina Smith (Legion, Room 104, Buster’s Mal Heart).
Written by Emmy-nominated David Farr (The Night Manager), who co-wrote the original film, Hanna is equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama, which follows the journey of an extraordinary young girl as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.
Enos plays Marissa – an efficient and ruthless agent, having risen up the ranks of the CIA. However, beneath her cool exterior is a deeply buried secret that continues to haunt her. The reappearance of Hanna and her father Erik threaten to expose the past she has worked to repress. Kinnaman plays Erik, a hardened, intuitive and uncompromising soldier and mercenary, who, for the past 15 years, has raised his daughter in the remote forests of northern Poland. Isolated from the world he once knew, he has trained Hanna in every method of survival, with his only goal, to keep her safe. But, his teenage daughter begins to seek freedom from the restricted haven he has created.
Creed-Miles takes on her first leading role as Hanna, an extraordinary teenage girl who has lived all her life in a forest in Northern Poland until becoming the heart of an unraveling conspiracy. Hanna feels she must leave the confinement of the forest to experience life, but once in the world, Hanna is hunted by Marissa and others connected to Hanna’s hidden origins and exceptional abilities.
