Hanna renewed for a second season at Amazon Prime
Variety is reporting that Hanna has been renewed for a second season at Amazon Prime. The series is an adaptation of the hit 2011 action thriller of the same name and stars Esme Creed-Miles, Joel Kinnaman, and Mireille Enos.
Having lived all her life in a forest in Northern Poland, Hanna becomes the heart of an unraveling conspiracy and must leave the confinement of the forest to experience life, but once in the world, Hanna is hunted by Marissa (Enos) and others connected to Hanna’s hidden origins and exceptional abilities.
Her father, Erik (Kinnaman), a hardened intuitive and uncompromising soldier and mercenary who, for the past 15 years, has raised his daughter in the remote forest of northern Poland. Isolated from the world he once knew, he has trained his daughter in every method of survival, with his only goal, to keep her safe. But, his teenage daughter begins to seek freedom from the restricted haven he has created.
“We knew we had something unique with Hanna, and with the added momentum from its special post-Super Bowl preview, Amazon Prime Video customers worldwide agreed. Since it debuted only ten days ago, Hanna has had a tremendous response, and we’re thrilled with not only how it has performed for us on the service, but with the action-packed world David Farr has created for the series and the stellar cast, led by Esmé Creed-Miles, Mireille Enos, and Joel Kinnaman. We’re excited to give fans a chance to see Hanna continue her journey on Amazon,” said Albert Cheng, co-head of television for Amazon Studios.
David Farr, who co-wrote the original film, penned the series adaptation which follows the journey of a young girl with extraordinary skills as she evades the relentless pursuit of an off-book CIA agent and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.
Enos and Kinnaman previously starred together in the AMC series The Killing, which makes the upcoming Amazon adaptation something of a reunion for the actors.
The series is executive produced by Mary Adelstein and Becky Clements, as well as NBC Universal International Studios’ Scott Nemes and JoAnn Alfano. Sarah Adina Smith (Legion, Room 104) directed the series, which was shot in March 2018 across Hungary, Slovakia, Spain, and the U.K.
Hanna Season 1 is currently streaming on Amazon Prime. Season 2 will air in 2020.
