Are you ready to get a little bit more confused? You know Amazon Prime Video? The streaming service that already has the John Krasinski-starring Jack Ryan series? Well, look out, because coming soon is the Lee Child character Jack Reacher. According to THR, the first season of the show will be based on the novel The Killing Floor.
“Lee Child’s Jack Reacher book series is a global phenomenon with one of entertainment’s most well-known heroes, and a perfect fit for Amazon Studios’ slate of bold, character-driven series,” Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke said Tuesday in a statement. “We look forward to expanding the Jack Reacher universe and bringing more thrilling action to our Amazon Prime Video audience.”

When last we saw Jack Reacher, he was played by Tom Cruise, but with him taking the leap to the small screen, I’m sure we can get a more book-accurate take on the character, which will probably do favors for the story.
“Lee Child has created an incredible character and world,” showrunner Nick Santora said. “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.”
Child himself piled on the love, saying, “It’s been great so far, but really, the fun starts here. By now I know these guys, and Reacher is in the perfect hands, believe me.”
