Amazon Prime Video has released the first teaser for Hanna season 2. In addition, they have announced when fans will be able to watch these new episodes. The hit series follows the journey of an extraordinary young woman, as she evades the relentless pursuit of a sinister government agency and tries to unearth the truth behind who she is. All eight episodes will premiere globally on Prime Video on Friday, July 3rd, 2020, so fans aren't going to have to wait too much longer to see what Hanna's next mission will be.

Following her discovery at the end of Season One, Hanna now knows she is not the only young woman with unparalleled skill and elite training. The Utrax program has produced a whole contingent of highly trained teenagers whose development is about to reach the lethal "second phase." Esmé Creed-Miles reprises the title role of Hanna and Mireille Enos returns as CIA operative Marissa Wiegler in a season that introduces Dermot Mulroney as Utrax overseer John Carmichael.

The brief Hanna teaser finds Esmé Creed-Miles' character making her way through the Utrax facility. It's believed that she is there to find and free more genetically-modified teens like herself. There's not very much going on in terms of setting up the storyline for season 2, but that will likely come with a full-length trailer between now and July.

While brief, the Hanna season 2 teaser does exactly what it should, which is get people excited for the future without spoiling too much. With that being said, season 1 of the series is followed the big screen adaptation's story pretty closely, so season 2 will likely get into some uncharted territory. Now that the basis of the story has been told, the show can pretty much do whatever it wants from here on out.

Hanna hasn't seen a lot of acclaim that The Boys or Jack Ryan has received on Amazon Prime. But the show has been a hit with critics and season 2 will be exploring a new storyline, away from the movie, which might entice more viewers to check it out. Plus, there's not a whole lot going on at the moment, so viewers might be just now discovering season 1 while being stuck indoors. Whatever the case may be, season 2 is set up for a pretty intense storyline.

Based on Joe Wright's acclaimed 2011 movie, Hanna's eight-episode second season was written by David Farr (The Night Manager), who co-wrote the original feature, and Paul Waters, Laura Lomas, Nina Segal and Charlotte Hamblin. The series is produced by Amazon Studios, NBCUniversal International Studios, Tomorrow Studios and Working Title Television. David Farr also serves as director of the penultimate episode and finale, along with series directors Eva Husson and Ugla Hauksdottir.
