Season 2 of the series is based on “Bad Luck and Trouble,” the 11th book in Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novel series.

The official description for Season 2 states: “‘Reacher’ Season Two begins when veteran military police investigator Jack Reacher (Alan Ritchson) receives a coded message that the members of his former U.S. Army unit, the 110th MP Special Investigations, are being mysteriously and brutally murdered one by one. Pulled from his drifter lifestyle, Reacher reunites with three of his former teammates turned chosen family to investigate, including Frances Neagley (Maria Sten); Karla Dixon (Serinda Swan), a forensic accountant for whom Reacher has long had a soft spot; and fast-talking, switchblade-wielding family man David O’Donnell (Shaun Sipos). Together, they begin to connect the dots in a mystery where the stakes get higher at every turn, and that brings about questions of who has betrayed them—and who will die next. Using his inimitable blend of smarts and size, Reacher will stop at nothing to uncover the truth and protect the members of his unit. If there’s one thing Reacher and his team know for certain, it’s that you do not mess with the Special Investigators. This season, get ready for Reacher and the 110th to hit back hard.”

The cast also includes: Ferdinand Kingsley as A.M., described as “a mercenary that Homeland Security refers to as a ‘ghost;'” Robert Patrick as Shane Langston, the “head of security for a private defense contractor with a questionable track record;” and Domenick Lombardozzi as “tough NYPD detective” Guy Russo.

Nick Santora developed the series for television and serves as executive producer and showrunner. Child is also an executive producer on the series along with Don Granger, Scott Sullivan, and Adam Higgs, with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Matt Thunell executive producing for Skydance Television. The series is produced by Amazon Studios, Skydance, and Paramount Television Studios.

“Reacher” proved to be an immediate hit for Amazon when Season 1 debuted in February 2022, becoming the first Amazon series top the Nielsen streaming rankings.

Reacher has commanded a Jack Reacher-sized global audience, quickly becoming one of the top five most watched original seasons ever in the U.S. and globally on Prime Video during its inaugural run. Fans can catch up on the first season, streaming now on Prime Video.
