Reacher Season 2: Amazon Renews the Second Episode
According to the network, Reacher was on Amazon’s most-watched series ever in the US and the world within 24 hours of the show’s release. Reacher premiered on the network on February 4 and featured a total of eight episodes. Also, the subscribers gave the show an average rating of 4.5/5.
Fortunately, three days after the show’s release, Amazon renewed Reacher Season 2 on February 7, 2022. The head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke, revealed that Reacher’s global impact made it one of the biggest debut series on the network. She credited the series’ phenomenal debut to Lee Child’s novel, Nick Santora’s original stories, the impeccable acting of Alan Ritchson and all the members involved in the incredible project.
How did Reacher season 1 end?
In the final episode titled “Pie,” Reacher was forced by KJ to watch a live stream of Roscoe being held captive. He sent Reacher and Picard to find Hubbly. But Richer tricked Picard into stopping to fix the tire. Jack tried to shoot Picard, but he managed to escape. Then Reacher rushed in to find Hubble, who told him he was working with Joe to stop Kliner’s surgery. Jack found out that Finlay was being held captive at the police station. He showed up at the police station, rammed into Baker and freed Finlay.
Reacher also collected some weapons and set fire to Kliner’s factory with gasoline. Picard was killed by Finlay by a hydraulic press, while Teale committed suicide. Finally, Jack splashed KJ with flammable chemicals and burned him alive by kicking him into the fire.
A flashback showed Reacher’s mother dying after a long terminal illness. She gave Jack his French grandfather Croix de Guerre on her deathbed. Roscoe shared her plans with Jack to run for mayor and rebuild Margrave. Finlay returned to Boston to start a new life. After burying Joe’s medal, Jack decided to leave Margrave and the first season ended with Reacher back on the road.
So we are sure that Jack will go on another murder adventure while in a different place to fight crimes, conspiracies and save lives in Reacher Season 2.
