Amazon has greenlit action drama “Hanna” for a third season, with an expected eight new episodes for 2021. The series, which is based on the 2011 movie of the same name features Esme Creed-Miles as Hanna, a 15-year-old girl living with Erik (Joel Kinnaman), the only man she has ever known, as her father, in a remote part of a forest in Poland. Erik once recruited pregnant women into a CIA program, code name UTRAX, where the children’s DNA was enhanced with 3 percent wolf in order to create super soldiers. When Erik falls in love with Johanna, Hanna’s mother, he rescues baby Hanna and they flee. The CIA then orders their on-site agent, Marissa, to shut down the project and eliminate all the babies.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to give Hanna a third season,” said writer and executive producer David Farr. “When we set out on this journey, I had in my mind a drama that would excavate Hanna’s past, challenge her in entirely new ways and answer the question: can she ever belong? I am truly grateful to Amazon and NBCU that we are able to continue that vision. I am also deeply indebted to Esmé Creed-Miles and to Mireille Enos for their continuing commitment and enormous talent as we take Hanna and Marissa into new and unexplored terrain. It’s going to be an exciting third act.”
The series from NBCUniversal International Studios, Working Title Television and Amazon Studios
