Based on the eponymous film written by Seth Lochhead and David Farr, Amazon Prime Video’s action series ‘Hanna’ follows the titular character, who lives in a remote forest in Poland after her father figure Erik rescues her from the CIA program called Utrax. Trained and brought up by Erik, Hanna is now chased by Marissa Wiegler, the CIA operative who is in charge of Utrax. As the show progresses, severe predicaments test Hanna’s survival as she tries to bring the establishment down.
Created by David Farr, the drama show received a favorable response from the critics, who praised the splendid visual appeal, action sequences, and engaging narrative. Originally released on February 3, 2019, the show also succeeded in captivating the audiences with its two-season run. As fans eagerly await Hanna’s missions to resume in a new iteration, here’s everything you need to know about ‘Hanna’ season 3!
Hanna Season 3 Release Date
On July 13, 2020, Amazon announced the renewal of ‘Hanna’ for the third season. The filming of the anticipated installment began in February 2021 in Prague, Czech Republic, after the COVID-19-imposed travel restrictions were removed. Since the season 2 finale reveals Hanna’s plans, the admirers of the show have been desperate to learn what happens next. Well, for those who are tired of waiting for the show to return, let us share the good news! ‘Hanna’ season 3 is all set to release on November 24, 2021, at 12 am ET on Amazon Prime Video.
Season 3 will comprise six episodes rather than the 8-episode model of the first two seasons. While the premiere of the upcoming edition is near enough, it is bound to be a bittersweet experience for fans since it is also the action drama’s final outing. In an interview given to EW, creator David Farr explained why the series is ending after three rounds. He said, “That was always the intention, to be honest. If you look back at when I was talking about the second season, I talked about how it needed ‘the third act.’ I come from the theater originally, and I always have full act structure in my head to how a piece of drama plays out. And in this case, I felt that there was this very clear arc.”
Hanna Season 3 Cast: Who is in it?
Esme Creed-Miles will return as Hanna, along with Mireille Enos (Marissa Wiegler), Dermot Mulroney (John Carmichael), Cherrelle Skeete (Terri Miller), Áine Rose Daly (Girl 242/Sandy Phillips), and Gianna Kiehl (Jules Allen). Joel Kinnaman may reprise his role as Erik Heller in the flashback scenes. However, Yasmin Monet Prince may not return for the third season, as her character Clara Mahan’s story arc seems to have concluded in season 2. On the other hand, Ray Liotta (‘Goodfellas’) has joined the mix as the principal antagonist of the upcoming installment – Gordon Evans – the head of Utrax and a rigid visionary.
Hanna Season 3 Plot: What is it About?
The second season ends with Hanna persuading Clara to leave Utrax with her. Clara is perplexed when Hanna shares the name and whereabouts of her mother. Conflicted, Clara leaves Sandy and escapes with Hanna. Meanwhile, Marissa follows Carmichael to the villa where Hanna and Clara are hiding and coerces him to join them. Hanna and Marissa want to bring the leaders of Utrax to justice and return to the program to see its end from the inside. Before returning, Hanna makes sure that Clara reunites with her mother to start a new life.
The third season will begin with Hanna and her allies’ attempts to topple Utrax to complete destruction. With Carmichael on their side – although unwillingly – Hanna and Marissa will try to gradually uproot the CIA program. Their actions will indeed stir some repercussions from Gordon, the head of Utrax. With Gordon keeping a close watch and Jules and Sandy on her tail, Hanna will have a tough time fulfilling her mission.
In the same EW interview, David Farr revealed what to expect from the final season. “It operates on a quite extreme family tragedy level. That central big arc of her [Hanna] finally coming to terms with the nemesis of what this project was, what is Utrax, what was it intended to do, who was behind it, what was it all about, and can she actually escape the destiny that is intended for her? That’s the fundamental drive of this season,” the creator said. Farr also added that the future storyline will dive into the political context and ramifications of the CIA program.
