Amazon has decided to renew John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan for a fourth season, ahead of its season 3 premiere.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is a political action thriller developed for Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service. The series was created by Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland. John Krasinski stars in the series as the title character. The first season follows the titular CIA analyst as he is wrenched from the security of his desk job into the field after discovering a string of dubious bank transfers, which are being carried out by a rising Islamic extremist named Suleiman. The second season sees Jack in the middle of political warfare in a corrupt Venezuela “at the center of a global conspiracy involving nuclear weapons”.
The cast consists of; John Krasinski, Wendell Pierce, Abbie Cornish, Ali Suliman, Dina Shihabi, John Hoogenakker, Noomi Rapace, Jordi Mollà, Francisco Denis, Cristina Umaña, Jovan Adepo, and Michael Kelly. Carlton Cuse, Graham Roland, Daniel Sackheim, Morten Tyldum, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, John Krasinski, Tom Clancy, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross, and Mace Neufeld are executive producing.
In April 2019, Amazon renewed the series for a third season consisting of 8 episodes. Later that year, Paul Scheuring was attached as the showrunner for season 3, as well as an executive producer. Unfortunately, Scheuring stepped down as showrunner in January of 2020, stating that he stepped down “after discovering he wasn’t a good fit”. He was replaced with Star Trek: Discovery writer and producer Vaun Wilmott, who will also be returning as showrunner in season 4.
While there is no production date confirmed yet, filming of the third season is expected to begin later this year. It is likely that Amazon plans to film seasons 3 and 4 back-to-back.
