Amazon Studios has ordered a third season of the hit action series Hanna for Prime Video. The news comes after a strong second season opening, which dropped on July 3. Hanna Season 2 debuted in more than 200 countries and territories.
Once again, season three of Hanna will be written by David Farr, who also serves as Executive Producer. “I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to give Hanna a third season,” says Farr.
“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.”

“David continues to deliver a series that’s elevated and action-packed, with twists you won’t see coming and characters you really care about,” adds Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “We’re very excited to team with NBCUniversal to bring our Prime Video customers around the world another season of adventures with Hanna.”
Based on the 2011 film directed by Joe Wright, Hanna stars Esmé Creed-Miles in the title role, a living weapon on the run from a sinister government agency.
Following her discovery at the end of season one, Hanna (Creed-Miles) now knows she is not the only young woman with unparalleled skill and elite training to emerge out of the Utrax programme. In season two, she risks her freedom to rescue her friend Clara (Yasmin Monet Prince) from the clutches of the Utrax programme at their new facility, The Meadows, run by John Carmichael (Dermot Mulroney) and his second in command, Leo Garner (Anthony Welsh).
