Prime Video today announced that the hit series Reacher has received an early renewal for a third season ahead of its second season debut on December 15. The announcement was made at the Prime Video Panel at CCXP in São Paulo, Brazil, during which star Alan Ritchson appeared in a video from the set of Reacher Season 3.
He also debuted a new extended clip from the upcoming second season, giving fans an exclusive sneak peek at the action-packed premiere episode.
Reacher Season 3 will be based on the book Persuader, the seventh book in the Jack Reacher series, written by Lee Child. Prime Video has also confirmed that Maria Sten (Swamp Thing) will return for the third season, reprising the role of Frances Neagley.
In the third season, which is currently filming in Toronto, Reacher must go undercover to rescue an informant held by a haunting foe from his past.
Reacher commands a passionate global audience, quickly becoming one of the top five most-watched original seasons ever on Prime Video in the U.S. and globally during its inaugural run.
Seasons Two and Three of Reacher will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
Based on the novels by Lee Child (buy now at Amazon), who is an executive producer on the series, Reacher, starring Alan Ritchson (Fast X, Titans), is produced by Amazon MGM Studios, Skydance Television, and Paramount Television Studios.
Reacher is written for television by Emmy-nominated writer Nick Santora (FUBAR, Prison Break), who also executive produces and serves as showrunner.
In addition to Santora and Child, Ritchson will serve as an executive producer of Season Three, along with Don Granger, Scott Sullivan, Mick Betancourt, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Matt Thunell for Skydance. Carolyn Harris and Kenny Madrid are the executives in charge of the series for Skydance Television.
The upcoming second season, premiering December 15 on Prime Video, begins when veteran military police investigator Jack Reacher (Ritchson) receives a coded message that the members of his former U.S. Army unit, the 110th MP Special Investigations, are being mysteriously and brutally murdered one by one.
Pulled from his drifter lifestyle, Reacher reunites with three of his former teammates turned chosen family to investigate, including Frances Neagley (Maria Sten), Karla Dixon (Serinda Swan), a forensic accountant for whom Reacher has long had a soft spot, and fast-talking, switchblade-wielding family man David O’Donnell (Shaun Sipos).
Together, they begin to connect the dots in a mystery where the stakes get higher at every turn, and that brings about questions of who has betrayed them – and who will die next. Using his inimitable blend of smarts and size, Reacher will stop at nothing to uncover the truth and protect the members of his unit.
If there’s one thing Reacher and his team know for certain, it’s that you do not mess with the Special Investigators. This season, get ready for Reacher and the 110th to hit back hard.
