“Reacher” Renewed

Although I preferred the first series of Reacher to its sophomore run of more firepower-dominated episodes, I am pleased to hear that the Prime Video TV program—based on Lee Child’s best-selling novels—has been re-upped for a third season. From The Real Book Spy:
Jack Reacher will again be brought to life by actor Alan Ritchson, who has played the titular role in both seasons of Prime Video’s Reacher (Season 2 debuted in second place on Nielson’s Top 10 Streaming Charts). Earlier today, Amazon confirmed that a third season is, indeed, coming and that Lee Child’s 2003 novel Persuader will serve as the source material for the upcoming season, which is said to already be filming in Toronto. In addition to Ritchson, Variety is reporting that Maria Sten will also return, reprising her role as Frances Neagley after appearing in the first two seasons. ...

The official logline for the third season of
Reacher reads, “Reacher must go undercover to rescue an informant held by a haunting foe from his past.”
The Real Book Spy’s Ryan Steck notes that “while we know Frances Neagley will be back in season three, her character does not appear in Child’s book, so it’ll be interesting to see how the show’s writers and producers make room for her in the overall plot.” No other casting choices have yet been announced.
