Jack Reacher is originally a series of crime novels written by and the protagonist is a former Major who investigates different cases. The books in the series are 24 in number and the character was played by in the 2012 movie adaptation.

A second movie titled Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (also with Cruise as the lead star) was released in 2016 and like its predecessor, didn’t garner favorable reviews.


Despite the polarizing reviews both Jack Reacher films got, they were both successful at the box office and author Child regained the rights to his work, expressing his desire to helm a new series with an actor who bore a physical resemblance to the character (one bigger and taller than Cruise).

Amazon won the rights to a Jack Reacher series in 2019 and according to TVLine, an announcement of the order for it was made by Head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke.

The first season of the series will be based on The Killing Floor, which is the first of the novels, and joining Amazon in the execution of the project is Skydance Television and Paramount Television Studios.

Nick Santora who will serve as the series’ showrunner, said:

has created an incredible character and world. It will be the goal of every writer, producer, actor, executive and crew member to capture the essence of Mr. Child’s books – and luckily Lee has been there, and will continue to be there, to help guide us along the way in this series. He is the pulse of Reacher.
