Get Out and Defending Jacob star Betty Gabriel is replacing Oscar nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies) in the new series regular role of Elizabeth Wright, the Chief of Station, in Amazon Prime Video’s Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan for Season 3, according to Deadline. Jean-Baptiste, who originally landed the role last November, reportedly left the project due to creative differences. The scenes already filmed with Jean-Baptiste will be reshot with Gabriel as the third season is currently in production.
The series, starring Emmy nominee John Krasinski (A Quiet Place, The Office, 13 Hours) has also added series regulars James Cosmo (His Dark Materials) as Luca, Peter Guinness (Cursed) as Petr, Nina Hoss (Little Sister) as Alena, and Alexej Manvelov (Before We Die) as Alexei.
Season 3 of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan finds Jack Ryan (Krasinski) on the run and in a race against time. Jack is wrongly implicated in a larger conspiracy and suddenly finds himself a fugitive out in the cold. Now, wanted by both the CIA and an international rogue faction that he has uncovered, Jack is forced underground, crisscrossing Europe, trying to stay alive and prevent a massive global conflict.
Along with Krasinski, returning cast members include Wendell Pierce as James Greer and Michael Kelly as Mike November.
The show is produced by Paramount Television, Carlton Cuse’s Genre Arts, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, and Skydance Television. Executive producers include Andrew Form, Krasinski, Allyson Seeger, Vaun Wilmott, Brad Fuller, and Michael Bay alongside Clancy, Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross, Mace Neufeld, and Cuse.
