'Jack Ryan,' Starring John Krasinski, Scores Early Season 2 Renewal at Amazon

'Jack Ryan,' Starring John Krasinski, Scores Early Season 2 Renewal at Amazon

Amazon chose to greenlight Jack Ryan for more episodes after seeing a 400 percent spike among Prime subscribers putting the series on their watch lists after the Super Bowl ad push.

"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", Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said Tuesday in a statement, via the Hollywood Reporter. A Quiet Place didn't just ease Krasinski into the spotlight; it catapulted him into stardom faster than anyone really imagined. The second season commences production this summer in Europe, South America and the United States.

As you may expect with a series of this nature, the second season will fall in a similar vein.

The show's producers - US-based Paramount Studios and Skydance Television - have already received the green light for an eight-episode second season.


The company announced the show will return for a second season, which sees the titular Central Intelligence Agency analyst confronting the forces of power in a declining democratic regime in South America.

Wendell Pierce (The Wire) will also reprise his role as James Greer in the second season.

This wouldn't be the first time Krasinski has filled a more action-oriented role, although it could be a more successful attempt at kickstarting that career trajectory.

The Jack Ryan stories have inspired numerous feature films over the past 30 years - the most recent of which was Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit in 2014 with Chris Pine as the lead - but Amazon's project marks the character's first small-screen appearance. Casting him has turned out to be a masterstroke: not only does his stint as Jim Halpert in The Office mean he encapsulates the "everyman" perfectly, but his directorial debut A Quiet Place has recently been a box office hit. Krasinski wrote and directed the movie, which he also stars in alongside his real-life wife, actress Emily Blunt. The outlet is hoping to take advantage of those capable of bingeing the show during Labor Day weekend. We have your answer.
