The second season of “Reacher” will debut with the first three of its eight episodes on Dec. 15. New episodes will then drop weekly every Friday through Jan. 19, 2024.

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 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. Carolyn Harris and Kenny Madrid are the executives-in-charge of the series for Skydance Television. Ritchson will be an executive producer on the show beginning with Season 3.
