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!
