Terminal List Season 2 Renewal Status

Hurray to the fans! The good news has arrived early for the fans: The Terminal List will definitely return to the screen with a brand-new season!

The renewal comes six months later, in February 2023, after the first season finale ended on a potential cliffhanger. In addition to this, the series will become a franchise for Amazon Studios and MRC, and it has also picked up an untitled prequel/Ben Edwards origin series headlined and executive produced by Taylor Kitsch from The Terminal List creator/executive producer David DiGilio and author Jack Carr.

The official Twitter handle of the show also confirmed the renewal announcement among the followers, quoting, “The world of Jack Carr’s The Terminal List is expanding with two new installments. Chris Pratt will return as James Reece for Season 2: TRUE BELIEVER, while also joining Taylor Kitsch who will take the lead in a wholly original Ben Edwards Origin Series.” Take a look at the official post below:

Terminal List Season 2 Speculated Release Date and Time Slot

As the series was recently renewed for a second season, it makes it way too early for the network to announce the prospective premiere date and time slot. But if we have to predict the potential release date of The Terminal List Season 2, it might happen sometime in the fall, around late 2023 to early 2024, just like the first season. It is anticipated to air at the same time slot of 3 a.m. ET exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, with new episodes dropping on the same day. 

Of course, this is just speculation! Hence, any statement about the show’s official release date and time slot is still pending verification by the network. So, it is just assumed that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame if the network decides to go with the exact schedule. In the meantime, we suggest that the viewers be patient and follow all the social media platforms for the series to be updated with the latest information for the upcoming season.

Terminal List Season 2: What to expect?

The second season of the hit conspiracy thriller The Terminal List from MRC Television will be based on Jack Carr’s New York Times best-selling novel True Believer. Additionally, Prime Video also announced it has ordered a new untitled prequel series, to be co-created by Carr and Season One creator/showrunner David DiGilio, focusing on fan-favorite Ben Edwards, portrayed by Taylor Kitsch (upcoming Painkiller and American Primeval, Waco, True Detective).

The prequel series featuring additional iconic Carr characters, including James Reece (Chris Pratt), Raife Hastings, Mohammed Farooq, and Ernest “Boozer” Vickers (Jared Shaw), is an elevated espionage thriller that takes viewers on Edwards’ journey from Navy SEAL to CIA paramilitary operator, exploring the darker side of warfare and the human cost that comes with it.

Additionally, Chris Pratt quoted, “I’m excited to announce that the second season of The Terminal List is on its way, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to reprise my role as James Reece. This season promises to be even more intense and action-packed than the first, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it. And for those who are fans of Taylor Kitsch’s Ben Edwards, I’m happy to say that we’re also working on a spinoff series that will delve deeper into his story and follow his journey from a Navy SEAL to a CIA operative. And to make it even more exciting, I will also be appearing in this prequel series! I promise you it will be just as thrilling and engaging as The Terminal List. Stay tuned for more updates and we can’t wait for you all to join us on this journey.”

Taylor Kitsch also stated, “Thank you to all the fans for believing in this show, we wouldn’t be here without your support. I’m excited to continue this wild ride that is Ben Edwards and bring to life Jack Carr’s amazing stories.” On the other hand, Jack Carr said, “Fans of The Terminal List will be thrilled to see James Reece’s journey continue in an action-packed story of violent redemption in True Believer. And we’re so excited to build this Terminal List prequel and explore Ben Edwards, brought to life so powerfully by Taylor Kitsch. Get ready for a journey from the SEAL teams to the CIA’s Ground Branch, as we watch a fan-favorite character fighting for his soul.”

“The phenomenal summer debut of The Terminal List is a testament to the creativity of Jack Carr, David DiGilio, and Chris Pratt along with the cast and teams who delivered such an original and compelling series,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon and MGM Studios. “With the second season of The Terminal List and Prime Video’s new prequel series starring the amazing Taylor Kitsch, we are expanding on the storytelling and characters beloved by so many all over the world.” MRC Television President Elise Henderson added, “The first season of The Terminal List resonated so strongly with fans, and we’re incredibly proud of the work accomplished by our tremendous cast and crew. We couldn’t be more excited to continue this journey and expand this world with Chris, Taylor, Dave, and our fantastic partners at Prime Video.”
