Season 3 of Jack Ryan hasn’t even premiered yet, but Amazon is already hungry for more. 

The streaming service ordered a fourth season of the John Krasinski-led drama despite the third series release still not scheduled until 2022.

The third season of the show will follow the secret agent after he becomes a fugitive from the CIA. The organization then follows the spy as he runs all over Europe. 

The fourth season will also see another star actor join the show’s ranks. 


Screen Actors Guild Award winner Michael Peña will join the show for its fourth season.  

Not all details known: While the fourth season’s plot is unknown, Krasinski’s character will have to run from the CIA in season 3
