Reacher Season 3: Amazon renews popular action series before the start of the new episodesamaz

Don't miss

Jack Reacher is far from over: Amazon has already given the green light for Reacher season 3.

Action fans currently have plenty to cheer about: not only is the upcoming start of Reacher season 2 a reason to look forward to, but Amazon has also set its sights on a third season before the premiere of the new episodes. The audience is therefore in for at least one more adventure from Jack Reacher (Alan Ritchson) – and it could even start sooner than expected.

New episodes already in the works: when will “Reacher” season 3 start?

As Alan Ritchson announced in a video at the Comic Con Experience in São Paulo, Amazon has renewed the action hit “Reacher” for a third season even before the season 2 debut:

“December is the time for hot cocoa and joy – and now for ‘Reacher’. That’s right, Season 2 of ‘Reacher’ premieres on Prime Video on December 15 [2023]. But you know what else December is the right time for? Surprises! And boy, do I have a surprise for you! That’s right. We’re on the set of ‘Reacher’ season 3 right now! It’s officially underway. But I can’t tell you any more than that at the moment.”

Below is a clip with the first shots from the second season, but the first part of the video is likely to be much more exciting for fans. This is because Reacher actor Alan Ritchson has not only announced the official confirmation of season 3, but also revealed that filming for the new episodes has apparently already begun.

While a whopping 22 months passed between seasons 1 and 2, the start of “Reacher” season 3 could therefore be realized much earlier. Although Ritchson has not indicated how far production has progressed, with a bit of luck we might be able to expect new episodes as early as fall or winter 2024 – perhaps even in December again, as that is now the month of “Reacher” according to the main actor. However, this has not yet been officially confirmed.

Reacher Season 3: What is it about? Which book will be adapted?

Amazon’s action series “Reacher” is based – like the film series of the same name starring Tom Cruise – on the bestselling novels by Lee Child. There are now 28 books telling the story of the former military policeman, with the 29th volume being published in October 2024, so there is plenty of material for series creator Nick Santora to adapt. However, it is not yet known which novel will be the basis for season 3.

The first season was based on the first book “Megalomania”, while season 2 is based on the eleventh volume entitled “Trouble” (“Bad Luck and Trouble” in English). In an interview with TVLine, Santora had already announced at the start of the series that he would not follow the books’ chronological order. Accordingly, fans will probably have to be patient before we get our first clue about the plot of the sequel. It is possible that the finale of the second season, which will be available on Prime Video from January 19, 2024, will shed some light on what might happen next.

Reacher Season 3: Alan Ritchson returns

As can be seen from the Instagram video above, lead actor Alan Ritchson will remain with us for “Reacher” season 3. However, it is not yet known which actors will be joining him on set. We’ll know more after the second season airs. Until then, you can try your hand at our action quiz. Are you true experts in the fast-paced genre?
