Amazon Prime Video has released their Hanna Season 1 Super Bowl spot, announcing that the first episode of the series will be available exclusively to Prime members for 24 hours following the game with the full season arriving in March. Adapted from the 2011 action thriller of the same name, you can check out the Hanna spot below!
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.
Mireille Enos (The Catch) plays Marissa, an efficient and ruthless agent, having risen up the ranks of the CIA. However, beneath her cool exterior is a deeply buried secret that continues to haunt her. The reappearance of the titular assassin and her father Erik threaten to expose the past she has worked to repress.

Joel Kinnaman (Altered Carbon) plays Erik, 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.
Esme Creed-Miles (Dark River) takes on her first leading role as the titular character, who has lived all her life in a forest in Northern Poland until becoming the heart of an unraveling conspiracy. Hanna feels she must leave the confinement of the forest to experience life, but once in the world, Hanna is hunted by Marissa and others connected to Hanna’s hidden origins and exceptional abilities.
Enos and Kinnaman previously starred together in the AMC series The Killing, the upcoming Amazon adaptation marking a reunion for the actors.
The series will be 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. and is set to debut on Amazon in March of this year.
