Jack Ryan season 2 is happening, but when will it release on Amazon Prime? Amazon Studios' hit series, Jack Ryan, stars John Krasinski as the titular CIA analyst and detailed his unlikely rise from desk jockey to full-fledged, world-traveling action hero as he foils a Middle Eastern terrorist plot against the United States in Jack Ryan season 1.
Rounding out his origin story in Jack Ryan season 1, Jack also meets Dr. Cathy Mueller (Abbie Cornish), who will one day be his wife, and forms a shaky bond with CIA veteran James Greer (Wendell Pierce), Ryan's mentor from the Tom Clancy novels. The inaugural, action-packed Jack Ryan season 1 left the door wide open for more of Jack's adventures in Jack Ryan season 2 and beyond, which Amazon is already guaranteed to deliver.
Jack Ryan season 2 is only the beginning as well, considering that Amazon Studios has already ordered Jack Ryan season 3 (which will see a new showrunner take over, as Carlton Cuse is stepping down after season 2). This news has come long before Jack Ryan season 2's release date, so it means that whatever Amazon has seen of Jack Ryan season 2, they've liked enough to commission another batch of episodes. But what can fans expect from Jack Ryan season 2 themselves?

Jack Ryan Season 2 Release Date Info
Jack Ryan season 2 is in post-production and should release in late summer or early fall 2019. Given that Jack Ryan season 2's production schedule has been similar to season 1 and that Amazon Prime has already released the first teaser trailer for season 2, it stands to reason that Jack Ryan season 2 should release fairly soon.
Jack Ryan Season 2 Story Details
Jack Ryan season 1 ended with Jim Greer transferred to Moscow to serve as station chief, and he invited Jack Ryan to leave CIA headquarters to join him in the field permanently. This was an exciting development for longtime Tom Clancy fans as it brings Jack Ryan closer to Clancy's novels, where the analyst began by pitting his wits against the Russians during the Cold War.
Despite that setup, however, Jack Ryan season 2 details already revealed indicated that "Jack Ryan confronts the forces in power in a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America." So, while Jack Ryan season 2 might begin with Ryan and Greer in Russia, South America looks like the source of the main problems they'll confront. This is also good news for Clancy fans as well, as the Jack Ryan season 2 story is in tune with his best-selling novel and the hit film, Clear And Present Danger, where Jack took on the South American drug trade while exposing corruption within the U.S. government.
Jack Ryan Season 2 Cast
John Krasinski, Wendell Pierce, and Abbie Cornish are all set to return for Jack Ryan season 2, and so is John Hoogenakker, who played CIA black ops operative Matice. Hoogennakker has been bumped up to series regular. Joining them in Jack Ryan season 2 will be a host of new characters:
Michael Kelly (House of Cards) joins the Jack Ryan season 2 cast as Mike November, a seasoned CIA officer who will work alongside Ryan. Another big name coming aboard to add more international flavor is Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), who plays Harriet "Harry" Baumann, a German intelligence agent who encounters Jack in South America.
Other new cast members already announced include Jovan Adepo (The Leftovers), who plays Marcus, a former Navy special crewman; Cristina Umaña (Narcos), a politician and mother; Francisco Denis as Ubarri, a South American government official; and Jordi Molla (Genius), who plays Nicolas Reyes, the powerful and charismatic leader of a South American nation.
