3. The Terminal List: Dark Wolf (TBA)

The untitled ‘The Terminal List’ prequel series is in development at Amazon Prime Video. A spy thriller, the narrative is set five years before the events of the original series and will revolve around Taylor Kitsch’s character Ben Edwards, who is a former friend of Pratt’s James Reece in ‘The Terminal List,’ chronicling his life journey from a Navy SEAL to a paramilitary operator for the CIA, depicting how he got involved in the conspiracy that viewers were subjected to in Season 1. We will get to see Reece in the series due to his history with Edwards. Executive producer and co-director Antoine Fuqua himself has confirmed Pratt’s appearance in the sequel during an interview with Collider. He stated, “Oh, yeah. I love it, man. That’s what I wanna do is I’ll direct probably one or two that Chris is in, you know, because it’s the prequel with Taylor [Kitsch] as well.”

Alongside Kitsch and Pratt, the cast includes Tom Hopper, Luke Hemsworth, Dar Salim, LaMonica Garrett, Rona-Lee Shimon, and Robert Wisdom. The series is created by Jack Carr (author of the eponymous source novel of the original series) and David DiGilio (showrunner). Pratt is one of the executive producers alongside Kitsch. It was in its filming stage as of March and is being produced by Hill District Media and Indivisible Productions, with Prime Video as the distributor.

4. The Terminal List Season 2 (TBA)

‘The Terminal List’ is an action thriller series created by David DiGilio. It is based on the Jack Carr novel of the same name. ‘The Terminal List’ season 2, greenlit at the beginning of 2023, is based on another Carr novel titled ‘True Believer.’ While speaking to ComicBook, Digilio stated, “It’s an incredible read, and it’s a great blueprint for Season 2.” As per ‘True Believer,’ season 2 will see Pratt’s James Reece, with a presidential pardon for his actions in ‘The Terminal List,’ race against time to help the US government botch a terrorist plot that involves a person with whom Reece has a history. In the endeavor, he uncovers an international conspiracy and an assassination plot with world-level consequences.

There are no reports about the cast or any updates about the production. Considering new characters are introduced in ‘True Believer,’ the new season is also expected to have new actors. Carr, Fuqua, and Pratt, along with Max Adams and Jared Shaw, serve as executive producers. It is expected to be released sometime in 2025. Reports also state that Season 2 is none other than ‘The Terminal List: Dark Wolf.’ More details are awaited.
