Season 3 Details
Season 2 had Ryan teaming up once again with James Greer (Wendell Pierce) and saw Jack investigating a shipment of illegal arms in Venezuela, while Greer had his own mission in Russia, and the two cross paths. They realised that their respective missions had a common objective and decided to join forces.
Season 2 was released on November 1, 2019. Shooting hasn’t started after season 2 wrapped up as Krasinsky had other commitments, and it looks like the third season won’t be starting for the time being due to the coronavirus pandemic. The plot for season 3 is rumoured to be Jack solving CIA issues in a South American country whose democracy is in danger. Hopefully, we can see it sometime in 2021.
The directors for season 3 will be Patricia Riggen, Daniel Sackheim, Carlton Cause, and Morten Tyldum.
On a chat with Variety, John talked about why his character is enjoying so much success, and it was because he’s a hero that the world needs- one without a cape or other superpowers but only his brain and instincts.
He also discussed that they can do justice to Clancy’s books with a television series as they will never be able to cover everything in movies. He said he’s able to match the tone of the character in the books.
