The first season of Jack Ryan focused on Islamic extremists’ domestic attacks. Season two focused on a fraudulent election in Venezuela. Season 2 ended with Jack Ryan uncovering a corrupt official in the U.S. Senate who was tampering with the Venezuelan election. It isn’t entirely clear whether the creative team will pick up where season two left off, as there weren’t too many loose strings left that need to be tied up in the storyline and there are several directions it can be taken in at this point. One thing we know for sure is season three will feature another action-packed eight-episode adventure.
