There have been 26 Jack Reacher novels and numerous short stories and novellas written by author Lee Child since his creation of the enormous ex-military drifter in 1997. He cranks out once a year, and he does so with a Reacher-like speed. The Killing Floor, the first book in the Reacher series, serves as the basis for Amazon’s new series based on the character’s travels. So, based on that, the show has a 25-year runtime window.
Even though we don’t know much about Reacher’s long-term plans, we do know something about his future as a streaming phenomenon. Alan Ritchson, the actor who plays Reacher’s T-shirt filler, is a natural fit for the role at Amazon, where other airport novel adaptations like Bosch and Jack Ryan have also found a home, as well as a natural star in Ritchson.
A second season is an obvious choice, given the show’s enthusiastic reception from viewers and reports of strong ratings. Everything we know about the show’s upcoming season has been gathered by our Reacher-Esque detective skills.
Is There Going to Be a Reacher Season 2?
Yes. Reacher was renewed for a second season by Amazon on Monday, February 7, just days after its premiere. Author Nick Santora (Scorpion) worked on the series, which Amazon said was among its five most popular shows ever in the US and worldwide for 24 hours. After seeing a thumbnail of Ritchson on their screens, Reacher fans essentially responded with a resounding “Yeah, please.”
When will Reacher Season 2 be released?
Reacher Season 2 has yet to be given an official release date. However, the rapid renewal gives us hope that we won’t have to wait long for new Reacher adventures. Amazon shows can take a while between seasons, but Bosch always delivered a season every year, so hopefully, Reacher follows suit and we’ll get the next adventure in 2023 as well.
Is There a Trailer for Reacher Season 2?
No! Don’t expect a trailer until the first season is over and the show has been renewed. On this one, you’ll need some Reacher-like patience—listen to some old blues instead.
Who in the cast is returning for Reacher Season 2?
One thing is for sure: Alan Ritchson will reprise his role as Jack Reacher in the upcoming movie. In the show, he is known as Racer. It’s a show without Reacher. Fortunately, Ritchson appears willing. “If we could wrap this up when I’m 74 or 75, I’d be happy,” he said in an interview with Collider before the announcement of Season 2. If there is a second season, “my fingers are crossed as hard as anyone.” “I don’t know, but I hope so.”
It was a good idea to cross your fingers. However, what about characters like Roscoe, played by Willa Fitzgerald, who serves as a sort of supporting cast? Because Reacher frequently travels from one town to another, there aren’t many characters who stick around from one adventure to the next. With enthusiasm, Fitzgerald recently stated in an interview that “She will continue to be the Roscoe that you all meet in Season 1.” Fitzgerald is excited to work on the second season.

Furthermore, Ritchson has hinted at the possibility of the show taking a slightly different “anthology” approach than the books. In an interview with Collider, he said of his co-stars, “They set the bar so high that we’d be remiss not to see them again. “That’s what I’m hoping for. I don’t know how that’s going to play out, but I think it would be beneficial to audiences if we deviated from the books a little bit in that regard.”
What will Reacher Season 2 be about?
A one-book-per-season model for Reacher may be possible, but it isn’t necessarily necessary. (Bosch liked to mix plots from different books in the series, which the writers could use to their advantage with Reacher if they so choose.)
Considering that the first book was used as the basis for the show, it’s possible that the second book, Die Trying, which takes place in Chicago and opens up with Reacher and an FBI agent being kidnapped, could be used as a jumping-off point. In addition to this one, there are countless other books featuring Jack Reacher.
To be clear, Jack Reacher will continue to have large arms, beat people up, and solve mysteries. He’s going to get a black coffee and take the bus. He’ll almost certainly become entangled in some sort of plot. He will break jaws, snap wrists, and squeeze necks if he needs to. After the goons attempt to intimidate him, he will nod and say nothing. In the end, he will always be Jack Reacher, a big boy with a big hunger for justice.
