The third season of Prime Video's hit series Reacher, which is yet to be officially confirmed by Amazon has shut down production just a few weeks after it began filming.
‘Reacher’ Season 3 began filming on June 19, 2023, in Toronto, Canada, and has to put a break on the filming/production activities earlier this week due to the SAG-AFTRA strike as part of which actors are demanding a proper wage structure and some common employee benefits including things like Healthcare. The strike has just begun after the talks failed between the union and the studios, and we don't know how long it will take for both parties to reach a fair deal. ‘Reacher’ Season 3 was expected to wrap filming on November 22, 2023.
Meanwhile, Amazon has confirmed that Reacher Season 2 will premiere sometime in December this year. This development came just before the SAG-AFTRA strike officially began. Amazon revealed the premiere date for its two top shows including Gen V, The Boys Spinoff series. Gen V will release on September 29 with its first three episodes.
Last month, when we revealed that Reacher Season 3 is filming, we also reported a rumor that the third season could be based on Lee Child's ninth novel, "One Shot" published in 2005. However, sources close to the production have now indicated that the third season is not based on "One Shot," however, there is no info on which book the third season will be adapted from.
‘Reacher’ Season 2 set to premiere in December, is based on Lee Child’s 11th Jack Reacher novel, Bad Luck and Trouble. In the novel, When a small anonymous deposit is made into Reacher's bank account, it sparks his fixation with maths and his investigative instincts. Reacher deduces that the deposit is a signal that would only be used by the eight former members of his elite team of army investigators. Frances Neagley, who is obsessed with maths like Reacher, tracks him down after the brutal death of one of their own. They must race to reunite with the survivors of their former team in order to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that grows more complicated with each murder.
Alongside Alan Ritchson as the titular character, the second season also stars Shaun Sipos, who will be playing David O’Donnell, who served with Jack Reacher in 110th, the Army’s unit of Special Investigators, and Reacher treats him like a brother.
Reacher, based on the novels of Lee Child, who is also an executive producer on the series, is produced by Amazon Studios, Skydance Television, and Paramount TV Studios. Emmy-nominated writer Nick Santora, who also executive produces and acts as showrunner, wrote the series for television. Along with Santora, the series is executive produced by Lee Child, Scott Sullivan, and Don Granger, alongside Skydance's Dana Goldberg, David Ellison, and Bill Bost.
