Hanna series renewed by Amazon
Hanna is headed home for season 2.
Amazon Original series Hanna has been confirmed for a second season.
The thriller series, which is based on the 2011 movie of the same name, revolves around a 15-year-old girl called Hanna who has been raised as a trained killer by her father.
The series is not a sequel to the film but rather a re-telling of it, with Esme Creed-Miles in the lead role.
Amazon does not release viewing figures for its programmes (much like Netflix) but it has said that Hanna has been very popular for the platform, leading to its renewal just weeks after first debuting.
Amazon Studios co-head of television, Albert Cheng, said that viewers have also responded well to the show.
"We knew we had something unique with Hanna, and with the added momentum from its special post-Super Bowl preview, Amazon Prime Video customers worldwide agreed.
"Since it debuted only  days ago, Hanna has had a tremendous response, and we're thrilled with not only how it has performed for us on the service, but with the action-packed world [writer and executive producer] David Farr has created for the series and the stellar cast, led by Esme Creed-Miles, Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman. We're excited to give fans a chance to see Hanna continue her journey on Amazon."
Hanna is written by David Farr, who also co-wrote the film, with the series acting as a co-production between Amazon Studios and NBCUniversal.
Farr said that he was thrilled to be able to continue the story beyond the plot of the movie.
"I am very much looking forward to taking Hanna on the next stage of her journey. It's been a wonderful experience so far, and I feel hugely supported by NBCU, Working Title and Amazon.
“The next season will take us into a whole new imaginative world. I can't wait to explore fresh terrain for this lonely young woman who wants only to belong, but who has to fight every day just to survive."
