Four weeks before it’s series premiere, Amazon is already filling out its cast for season two of “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.”
The online retail giant announced on Monday that Jovan Adepo, Jordi Molla, Cristina Umaña and Francisco Denis will join the series for season two. The quartet joins John Krasinski, who plays the titular character, Noomi Rapace, Michael Kelly and John Hoogenakker.

Molla will play Nicolas Reyes, the powerful and charismatic leader of the South American country, while Denis will play one of the country’s senior government officials, Ubarri. Adepo will play Marcus, a former special crewman in the Navy now repairing boats, whose life takes a turn when an old colleague offers him a critical position in a covert operation. Umaña will play Gloria Bonalde, which Amazon describes as “a woman who fearlessly balances her career in politics with the demands of motherhood.”
Season two of the series is a co-production with Paramount Television and Skydance Television. Executive producing with Cuse, Roland and Krasinski are Platinum Dune’s Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller and Cuse’s Genre Arts. Additionally, Lindsey Springer, Mace Neufeld, Vince Calandra, Andrew Bernstein and Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross will also executive produce the second season with Allyson Seeger serving as a co-executive producer.
