Reacher season 2 brought another of Lee Child's thrilling novels to life, and the full season is now available to stream on Prime Video.

Just a few months after the first series of The Wheel of Time became the most-watched series on Prime Video in 2021, Reacher claimed that title from the fantasy epic after it was watched for 1.84 billion minutes during the week of January 31 to February 6. 

Given its impressive debut, it was no surprise that Reacher got a speedy renewal, and the second season brought us another intriguing mystery and even more action. This time around, Reacher reunited with several members of the Special Investigators unit he formed to track down who was killing their comrades off. 

The second season Here's everything you need to know about Reacher season 2...

Reacher season 2 cast

As fans of the books will know, there aren't many characters (beyond Jack Reacher himself, obviously) who return between stories.

Aside from the obvious return of Alan Ritchson in the title role, Maria Sten reprised her role as Frances Neagley in May (via Deadline). Shaun Sipos (Outer Range) was cast as David O’Donnell. David served alongside in the 110th,  the Army’s unit of Special Investigators, and is like a brother to him.

Serinda Swan (Coroner) joined the cast as Karla Dixon. Like David O’Donnell, she served with Reacher in the 110th. According to Amazon, Karla is "an extremely intelligent private investigator who has no problem holding her own in a fight against men much larger than she is". 

Second up is Ferdinand Kingsley (The Sandman), who joined the cast as A.M. He’s a “ghost" and operates under a number of aliases and can pass for any nationality. Amazon says that A.M is only motivated by money and that he's willing to work for the highest bidder. 

Rory Cochrane (Encounter) is also on board cast as Shane Langston. Shane is a former NYPD detective with a questionable track record who now heads up security for a private defense contractor.

Domenick Lombardozzi (Magnum P.I.) joined as NYPD detective Guy Russo, a tough guy who’s investigating the case alongside Reacher and co.  

Ty Victor Olsson (Wynonna Erp) has been cast as Saropian. A brutal professional hitman, Saropian has been charged with tracking the members of Reacher's old elite military squad. 

Josh Blacker (Elysium) was cast as Hortense Fields. Fields is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army who oversees the 110th. Al Sapienza (Suits) is also on hand as Marsh, a formidable lieutenant with the NYPD.

Amazon's summary for Reacher season 2 reads: "Reacher Season Two begins when veteran military police investigator Jack Reacher (Alan Ritchson) receives a coded message that the members of his former U.S. Army unit, the 110th MP Special Investigations, are being mysteriously and brutally murdered one by one. 

"Pulled from his drifter lifestyle, Reacher reunites with three of his former teammates turned chosen family to investigate, including Frances Neagley (Maria Sten); Karla Dixon (Serinda Swan), a forensic accountant for whom Reacher has long had a soft spot; and fast-talking, switchblade-wielding family man David O’Donnell (Shaun Sipos). 

Together, they begin to connect the dots in a mystery where the stakes get higher at every turn, and brings about questions of who has betrayed them—and who will die next. Using his inimitable blend of smarts and size, Reacher will stop at nothing to uncover the truth and protect the members of his unit. If there’s one thing Reacher and his team know for certain, it’s that you do not mess with the Special Investigators. This season, get ready for Reacher and the 110th to hit back hard.
