The new series is based on the character from Lee Child’s international bestselling series of books, which spawned two film adaptations starring Tom Cruise, 2012’s Jack Reacher and 2016’s Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. It is set to be released on February 4, 2022.
The first-look trailer shows Ritchson’s Reacher arriving in fictional town Margrave, where he piques the interest of the local authorities, who are impressed with his credentials but disturbed by a death that coincides with his arrival.
In addition to Ritchson – best known for playing Hank Hall (aka Hawk) in DC’s Titans – other cast members include What We Do in the Shadows‘ Harvey Guillén, iZombie‘s Malcolm Goodwin, The Goldfinch‘s Willa Fitzgerald and Lost in Space‘s Maxwell Jenkins, among others.

News of the new series was announced back in January, when Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, revealed that the first season will be based on the 1997 book The Killing Floor.
“The Jack Reacher book series is a global phenomenon with one of entertainment’s most well-known heroes,” Salke said, “and a perfect fit for Amazon Studios’ slate of bold, character-driven series.
“We look forward to expanding the Jack Reacher universe and bringing more thrilling action to our Amazon Prime Video audience.”
The series will be written and helmed by Scorpion‘s Nick Santora, who will be carrying on what Child started.
The highly-anticipated Top Gun sequel, which sees Tom Cruise reprise his role as Maverick, will now release in cinemas on May 27, 2022, instead of November 19, 2021.
Mission: Impossible 7 has been pushed back to September 30, 2022, four months after its original slated release on May 27, 2022.
