Only days after the subscription VOD service premiered the drama in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide, Amazon Prime Video has signed up for a second season of drama Hanna.

Amazon Hanna 15April2019Based on Joe Wright’s 2011 film, Hanna’s eight-episode first season was written by David Farr (The Night Manager), who co-wrote the original feature. In Season One, 15-year-old Hanna (Esmé Creed-Miles), who was raised in total seclusion in the remote woods of Eastern Europe, has spent her entire young life training to fight those who hunt her and her mercenary father, Erik Heller (Joel Kinnaman). Her survivalist skills are finally tested when she and Erik are separated upon their discovery by a rogue CIA operative, Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos) and her team of agents. Hanna has no choice but to embark on a perilous journey alone across Europe as she seeks to reunite with her father and evade - and ultimately take down - the dangerous agents who target them.

Season Two will also be written by Farr, who also serves as executive producer. The drama was produced by NBCUniversal International Studios, Working Title Television and Amazon Studios. Tom Coan will serve as executive producer for NBCUniversal International Studios. Executive producers for Working Title Television are Andrew Woodhead, Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan. Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements will also serve as executive producers alongside Scott Nemes. Laura Hastings-Smith is series producer (The Little Drummer Girl, Hunger).

"I am very much looking forward to taking Hanna on the next stage of her journey,” Farr remarked. “It's been a wonderful experience so far, and I feel hugely supported by NBCU, Working Title and Amazon. The next season will take us into a whole new imaginative world. I can't wait to explore fresh terrain for this lonely young woman who wants only to belong, but who has to fight every day just to survive."

“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,” added Albert Cheng, co-head of television, Amazon Studios. “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.”
