One person who won’t be returning for season 2 is Willa Fitzgerald, who previously said Digital spy that she knew it would only be for one series.
“Yes, I knew it from the beginning,” she said. “I think it’s a great opportunity to tell a clean and complete story and then be able to walk away. I think it’s a unique TV experience.
“It’s nice to have an agency that knows it’s a complete, finished product.”
Reacher is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
