Reacher Season 2 Plot
The second season will be based on “Bad Luck and Trouble.” It is the eleventh book in the Jack Reacher series written by Lee Child. It was published in 2007 and written in the third person. The plot of the book follows, from a helicopter high above the California desert, a man who is sent free-falling into the night.
On the streets of Portland, Jack Reacher is pulled out of his wandering life and plunged into the heart of a conspiracy that is killing old friends and the people he once trusted with his life. Reacher is the ultimate loner—no phone, no ties, no address. But a woman from his old military unit has found him using a signal only the eight members of their elite team would know.
Then she tells him a terrifying story about the brutal death of a man they both served with. Soon Reacher is reuniting with the survivors of his team, scrambling to unravel the sudden disappearance of two other comrades. But Reacher won’t give up—because in a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they’d better be ready for what comes right back at them.
Alan Ritchson also shared a picture of himself with the book on Twitter, quoting, “O’Donnell put his hand in his pocket and came out with his brass knuckles. Ceramic knuckles, technically.” That’s right, season 2 of #ReacherOnPrime will be based on Bad Luck and Trouble (Jack Reacher, #11), written by the legendary Lee Child. Filming will commence this fall. Take a look at the official post below:
