With “Reacher” all the rage right now, many people may feel compelled to check out Season 1 if they missed it when it first aired in February 2022. However, it’s not mandatory if you’re pressed for time. “Reacher” is based on the Jack Reacher novels from Lee Child, where the titular character is a drifter finding himself in the middle of dangerous predicaments. Season 1 was based on the first Jack Reacher book, “Killing Floor,” while Season 2 draws from the 11th book, “Bad Luck and Trouble.”
Season 1 may give new viewers a chance to understand the character and his world a bit more, but it’s unnecessary to understand Season 2’s story. It’s a new plotline with an almost entirely new cast. This makes it an ideal series for newcomers who may be reluctant to binge-watch something with a previous season under its belt already.
“Reacher” episodes vary in length slightly. The first three episodes of Season 2 fall within the range of 47 to 56 minutes, and the remaining five installments will probably be in that neighborhood, too. And anyone who likes what they see with “Reacher” Season 2 will be delighted to hear that Prime Video has already ordered Season 3. With this kind of hype, it’s Jack Reacher’s world, and we’re all just living in it.
