Ten days after its premiere, Amazon has renewed Hanna for a second season with the principal cast and series creator David Farr all expected to return.
A television adaptation of the 2011 film of the same name, Hanna follows a young girl raised by her father to be the ultimate warrior. The two find themselves targeted by a rogue faction of the CIA, putting Hanna's skills to the test. Farr, who co-wrote the original film, wrote all eight episodes of the first season and served as the executive producer with the adaptation receiving a buzzed-about Super Bowl spot the month before its premiere.
"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,” declared Amazon Studios Co-Head of Television Albert Cheng in a statement to Variety. "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.”
No start date for production has been announced for the second season but it is expected to premiere some time next year.
Created by David Farr, Hanna stars Esme Creed-Miles, Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman. The first full season is available now on Amazon Prime Video.
