The first season of the upcoming Amazon series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is still four months from release, but Amazon has confidently given the greenlight to a season two already.
The move comes after a Super Bowl ad for the show led to a significant increase in Prime subscribers adding Jack Ryan, which stars A Quiet Place co-writer, director, and star John Krasinski in the title role, to their watchlists.

The crowd was buzzing at the start of Amazon’s panel for their new scripted drama, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, as its lead star and executive producer John Krasinski — who plays the titular character — hit the stage. Along with moderator Terry Schwartz, Krasinski was accompanied by co-star Abbie Cornish, and executive producers Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland.
Fans were treated to a couple of scenes from the show, the initial clip being the first seven minutes of the premiere episode.
Amazon Prime Video has become a competitive powerhouse in online streaming, and Prime members will get another thrilling drama to add to their queues in 2018: the latest iteration of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan starring executive producer John Krasinski (13 Hours, The Office), Wendell Pierce (Ray Donovan, The Wire), and Abbie Cornish (Limitless). Geeks of Doom had the chance to sit down at New York Comic Con 2017 with Pierce and Cornish, along with showrunner and executive producer Carlton Cuse (Lost, The Strain, Bates Motel) and executive producer Graham Roland (Almost Human).
