Amazon Studios picks up ‘HANNA’ for a third season after the success of season two

Amazon Studios has greenlit a third season of its popular action thriller series HANNA, after its second season was well received. The anticipated second season of HANNA debuted on 3 July on Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories, and has been a hit with customers around the world.

Produced by NBCUniversal International Studios, Working Title Television and Amazon Studios, HANNA is written and executive produced by David Farr (The Night Manager). Farr has directed two episodes of the second season, which The New York Times complimented for “strong performances,” and called the “perfect weekend binge.”

Elated by the announcement, Farr said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to give HANNA a third season. When we set out on this journey, I had in my mind a drama that would excavate Hanna’s past, challenge her in entirely new ways and answer the question: can she ever belong? I am truly grateful to Amazon and NBCU that we are able to continue that vision. I am also deeply indebted to Esmé Creed-Miles and to Mireille Enos for their continuing commitment and enormous talent as we take Hanna and Marissa into new and unexplored terrain. It’s going to be an exciting third act.”

HANNA follows the journey of an extraordinary young woman, played by Miles, as she evades the relentless pursuit of a sinister government agency and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is.

Following her discovery at the end of season one, Hanna (Creed-Miles) comes to know that she is not the only young woman with unparalleled skill and elite training to emerge from the Utrax program. In the second season, she risks her freedom to rescue her friend Clara (Yasmin Monet Prince) from the clutches of the Utrax program at their new facility, The Meadows, run by John Carmichael (Dermot Mulroney). Hanna finds help in the unlikely form of her previous nemesis, CIA agent Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos) who must protect both herself and Hanna from the ruthless organisation she once trusted. 

Amazon Studios co-head of Television Vernon Sanders added, “Farr continues to deliver a series that’s elevated and action-packed, with twists you won’t see coming and characters you really care about. We’re very excited to team with NBCUniversal to bring our Prime Video customers around the world another season of adventure with HANNA.”

Farr continues to serve as the writer as well as executive producer. Tom Coan will also serve as executive producer for NBCUniversal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group, alongside Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements and Scott Nemes. 

NBCUniversal International Studios president Jeff Wachtel noted, “Thanks to Farr, Coan and the wonderful cast and crew of HANNA for delivering two smashing seasons, and to Amazon Prime Video for being the best partner anyone could hope for. Strap in for season three!”

HANNA both seasons are exclusively available on Amazon Prime Video.
