Alan Ritchson — the star of Amazon series Reacher — has inked a deal with the tech giant that will see him star in three films from the studio.
Amazon renewed the series for a second season three days after its Feb. 4 release. The company says it ranks among Prime Video’s top five most watched series ever in the U.S. and globally.
“Reacher has exceeded our wildest expectations, and Alan’s captivating performance has played a huge role in the show’s success,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios.
Outside of Reacher, Ritchson’s credits include the upcoming Lionsgate drama Ordinary Angels, where he appears opposite Hilary Swank. Recently, Ritchson made his feature directorial debut with Dark Web: Cicada 3301, which he also starred in, and he had a multiyear run on the HBO Max drama Titans.
