Amazon Prime, for a long time, has had some awesome shows that have popped up and taken over our television screens, from the superhero hit, Invincible to comedies like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. However, one of the most popular ones for a long time has been a bit dormant in terms of updates, and that is Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Season 3.

The second season ended in 2019, with a Season 3 renewal coming not long after that for the action show. But what exactly is going on with the production of Season 3? And what’s going to happen next? Where are we going to go in the world alongside Jack Ryan? These are some quick things we know about the upcoming third season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.

There Is No Set Premiere Date For Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Season 3

Unfortunately, there is no set premiere date set yet for the third season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. This could be due to a plethora of instances if we care to speculate. John Krasinski, the star of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, recently released A Quiet Place: Part II, which he directed, though the horror sequel was originally supposed to be released in 2020 and ended up getting delayed due to the pandemic.

It could also be due to filming constraints as well. Since the COVID-19 pandemic locked down travel across the world, that would make it hard for a series like Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan to film, with how many locations they visit across the plot of the show. Season’s 1-2 showrunner Carlton Cuse talked about how intense it is to film a show like Jack Ryan to The Hollywood Reporter in 2018.

It was logistically challenging to work on all eight episodes that we’re shooting on three continents with four different directors and often two – and sometimes three – crews shooting at once.

This was only for Season 1 of the show, and with how Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan has been playing out, we’re bound to see plenty more places of the world soon.

As Of April 2021, Jack Ryan Season 3 Was Expected To Start Filming In May

There does seem to a be a bit of light in the darkness for Jack Ryan fans, however, because an update recently came out saying that filming could be happening right now.

Back in April of 2021, The Prague Reporter said that the third season of the show would begin filming in Prague in May, saying that local casting agents were currently looking for waitstaff and an experienced chef to appear in a scene in a luxurious restaurant that takes place in Prague.

Keep in mind that there haven’t been any updates since then, so take everything with a grain of salt, but it’s at least something to think about.

John Krasinski Will Return For Season 3 Of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan

It would be pretty sad if Season 3 of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan didn’t return without its main star. But don’t worry – you won’t need to be sad anytime soon. According to Deadline, John Krasinski will be returning to play the titular Jack Ryan on the Amazon original show.

After his recent release with A Quiet Place: Part II, John Krasinski has been on a roll with some awesome projects lately. I can’t wait to see him return to the spy thriller as soon as Season 3 comes out.

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Will Add On Several New Characters In Season 3

Alongside John Krasinski returning, there will be plenty of new faces added onto Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan in the third season. Per the Deadline article from before, Betty Gabriel, known for her role as Georgina in the Jordan Peele horror film, Get Out, has signed on for a major role in the upcoming third season, playing Elizabeth Wright, the Chief of Station.

Four others have been cast as series regulars in Season 3, which includes James Cosmo from His Dark Materials, Peter Guinness from Cursed, Nina Hoss from Little Sister, and Alexej Manvelov from Before We Die. Their roles are currently unknown, but I’m sure that they’ll be adding many more stories for us to explore in the upcoming third season.

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Season 3 Will Have A New Showrunner

As mentioned before, Carlton Cuse was the showrunner for Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. But it seems that Season 3 is going to be changing things up a bit.

According to Deadline, Prison Break creator, Paul Scheuring, has signed on to become the showrunner of the spy thriller series over at Amazon, while also serving as an executive producer.

It’s always fun to see new people come onto a show like Jack Ryan, and I’m eager to see what Scheuring might bring to the table in terms of a new story, new characters, and everything else in-between.

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Will See Jack In A “Race Against Time”

Jack Ryan Season 2 ended way back in 2019, so fans can only imagine where the show might go from there with how long it’s taken for it to premiere. However, we do have an idea of where Jack Ryan might be going next – and the dangers he will learn about.

Per the Deadline article about casting, we also get a little bit of an inside look into what Season 3 will be about, where we will watch Jack Ryan in a race against time.

Ryan ends up being wrongly implicated by a giant conspiracy, and now he suddenly finds himself as a fugitive, trying to survive. Now, while being hunted down by both the CIA and the international rogue faction that he has uncovered, he is forced to go underground and find his way across Europe, while trying to keep himself alive and prevent what could cause a huge global conflict.

Not for nothing, but this sounds so much more intense than the last two seasons of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan – and this is only Season 3. Can you imagine the possibilities?

James Greer Might Take On A More Administrative Role In Season 3 Of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan

Alright, so this is a little bit more on speculation, but James Greer, Ryan’s boss in T-FAD and a former CIA station chief, might be pulling a Nick Fury and assembling a team of players for Jack Ryan to lead.

In a deleted scene that was released exclusively to ScreenRant, occurring right after the Season 2 finale, “Strongman,” we see Jack visit Greer, played by Wendell Pierce, in his office. Greer offers Jack the chance to lead a special team, one that he is assembling.

What exactly could that mean? Who is he assembling? What the heck is going on? Now, keep in mind, this was a deleted scene, so who knows for sure if this might happen, but it’s always fun to speculate and see what might come next for some of the main characters in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan – a new team of bad-asses sounds pretty fun if you ask me.

There’s a very low chance that Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan will be appearing in the 2021 fall TV schedule, but hopefully, in the near future, we might be able to get a good idea of exactly when we’ll get to see all our favorite CIA operatives once more.
