Has Reacher been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Reacher Season 1

Reacher is the latest Amazon Prime action series, revolving around the exploits of Jack Reacher. For those unaware, the original novels are written by Lee Child, with the big screen actually seeing several Reacher adaptations with Tom Cruise in the driving seat.

Commissioned for 8 episodes, this high-octane mix of action, drama and thrills makes for one heck of a rollercoaster ride across its run-time.


What is Reacher Season 1 about?

The 8 episode series on Amazon features Alan Ritchson as the titular lead role of Jack Reacher. The season revolves around Reacher heading into the quiet town of Margrave, Georgia and immediately becoming suspected of murder.

With the town seemingly rife with corruption, seedy characters and a potential counterfeiting scheme, it’s up to Reacher, detective Finlay and officer Roscoe to uncover the truth.

Essentially this is a classic crime drama, complete with an enigmatic group of characters and a conclusive ending.

We have extensive coverage of Reacher across the site, including episodic recaps and a full season review. Feel free to check them out HERE!


Has Reacher  been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Reacher has been renewed for a second season! Given how popular the Jack Reacher novels are, and how well received this series has been, that’s perhaps not surprising.

A second season could well explore another of Lee Child’s novels, with lots of different possibilities and ideas to draw from. With Amazon being so quick to renew this one, it’s fair to say that the show has been a big success.


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Amazon Prime has only just green-lit a sequel. However, the conclusion does leave the main plot line completely resolved. It also paves way for plenty more adventures to come too.

We could see other books adapted when production goes ahead, potentially even with a look at how Neagley and Reacher first met. There are an awful lot of possibilities for a second season but we’ll have to wait and see what Amazon has in store for us. For now though, rest assured that we’ll definitely see more Reacher in the future!

  1. My wife and I loved reacher I have read every book and would love to see more seasons made , big fan.

  2. Great series! What was meant by Neagleys text at the end? Reacher crushed the phone in his hand and three it down as angry. Was Neagley jealous?

  3. I noticed as Reacher was leaving Roscoe’s bedroom he received a text from Neagly saying, “Back in Chicago. Take it sleazy.” The second Reacher novel starts with Reacher in Chicago. The text message sounds like a setup for season two based on book 2 “Die Trying.”

  4. Been reading the novels since the very first one. Couldn’t watch the Tom Cruise version. Not sure what bright spark cast a 5.7” actor as a 6.5” character , but whoever it was needs to find a new line of work.
    I just binged all 8 episodes of season 1 in one day. This is how Jack Reacher should always have been played.
    Bring on season 2,3,4,5,6 etc till they run out of novels to adapt.

  5. Reacher was a fantastic series – my husband and I who are in our mid 70’s binged on it over two nights. We can’t wait for Series 2. It was masterful, very well cast and understated – Reacher “talks” with his eyes and I love it plus the humor! Anyone who doesn’t enjoy this is really missing out.

  6. Absolutely more Reacher, please. I binged on all 8 episodes of the 1st season. It left me wanting more and was so disappointed when there wasn’t another season. This is by far the best the Reacher ever with Alan Richtman playing the lead. Season 2 is a must in my book.

  7. Well put Cheryl, I could not have put it better myself so i hav. repeated it verbatim.
    There has to be a second (third, fourth, etc) season of Reacher! OMG, Alan Richtman IS Reacher! I always thought that Tom Cruise was a totally inadequate option for the role. But damn Ritchman is perfection. I binge watched the entire first season and when it ended I wanted more! The episodes were true to the books and the actors were exactly who they should have been. An outstanding cast. I was blown away and each episode was action packed and left me racing to the remote to start the next episode until it was over, and I was left wanting more! PLEASE GIVE US MORE RITCHMAN, OOPS, I MEAN REACHER!!!

  8. Loved the first season of Reacher.Stayed true to Lee Child’s book..very well acted,full on action…and good to see the good guys win..and Alan Ritchson as Reacher was perfect.Bring on a second season please Amazon Prime.

  9. Alan Ritchson fills the role of Reacher really well he also plays him to a T
    Bring on the next 5 or 6 Lee Child story adaptations
    The first is a hit and they can only get better
    I look forwards to them all
    Well done

  11. Yes! Make many seasons. Jack Reacher books a well written stories. Very entertaining.

  12. My TV reviews site will be coming soon but here I will leave a review.

    Great mixture here of drama, suspense, thrill and of course romance. Reacher I feel has tons of potential, not only do I believe there will be another season to look forward to I do believe we will be blessed with many seasons to look forward to. Reacher and Rosco set the scenes very nicely while keeping the thrill of the hunts going. Leaving you puzzled on every turn on “who killed who” & and who to trust.

    This is a very well plotted show that I believe could of ended differently but I am interested in seeing how they go into season 2. Now I am not saying there will be that is up to Amazon and the number of viewers Reacher attracts. If you were to ask for my expert opinion, we will see a season 2 later on.

  13. Yes we need a series’s 2, this show is amazing, it keeps you in suspense! Please let there be a series’s 2!

  14. I loved every single episode. It did keep you on the edge of your seat. Very well
    written as well as acting was great. Truly anxious to see what they have for season 2, if at all. Might watch it all over again to see if I missed anything.

  15. Yes I’d like to see another season. Lee Child’s has several novels to choose from.
