Jack Reacher author Lee Child tells CineMovie that season 2 of Prime Video ‘s Reacher series is better than the first, and he reveals how they go about choosing which of the Jack Reacher novels to adapt for the Prime Video series.
Alan Ritchson returns as Jack Reacher in season 2 of the Prime Video series. The new season is based on Child's 11th book, Bad Luck and Trouble which finds Reacher reuniting with his former U.S. Army unit, 110th MP Special Investigations after some members are found tortured and murdered.
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 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.
