In a strong show of confidence, Amazon has officially renewed the Tom Clancy-inspired series Jack Ryan for a third season months ahead of the premiere of Season 2.
The renewal announcement was made by Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke at a Television Critics Association press presentation earlier today.
This echoes a similar move by Amazon last year, which saw the premium streaming service renew the then-unaired series for a second season more than four months before the series premiere this past August.
Properties based on Tom Clancy novels have seen a renewed push for major adaptations this past year with Paramount optioning a two-film deal to adapt Clancy's novels Without Remorse and Rainbow Six this past September. The planned adaptations have signed Michael B. Jordan to star as Clancy's popular recurring literary character John Clark though no writers or director have officially been announced as attached to either production.
Jack Ryan is developed for television by showrunners Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Graham Roland (Fringe) and stars John Krasinski, Wendell Pierce and Abbie Cornish. The first season is available to stream on Amazon.
