Buckle Back Up As Apple TV+ Announces Second Season of Turbulent Thriller “HIJACK”

Apple TV+ has confirmed a second season for the hit thriller series “Hijack,” starring and executive produced by SAG Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Idris Elba (“Luther”).

Since the series released internationally last year, “Hijack” quickly emerged as one of the top dramas on Apple TV+, garnering rave reviews from critics and fans alike, quickly earning a Certified Fresh critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes and landing a spot in the Nielsen Streaming Originals Top 10. The series has been hailed as “a shot of pure adrenaline”, commended as a “crisp and tense” drama that is “tension-filled and gripping, often putting the viewer on the edge of their seat”, with Elba providing a “commanding leading man.” 

Commenting on today’s announcement, Jay Hunt, creative director, Europe, Apple TV+ said, “Global audiences were on tenterhooks watching Idris’s riveting performance in ‘Hijack,’ and we’re thrilled to be working again with 60Forty and Idiotlamp on an equally compelling season two.” 

“I was floored by the overwhelming audience response after season one. It’s top secret what new situation unfolds for Sam Nelson but I can assure you we will bring the high octane back!,” added executive producer and star Elba. 

The second season of “Hijack” will be executive produced by Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Tom Nash at 60Forty Films, alongside executive producers Kay and Field Smith’s own production company Idiotlamp Productions. Field Smith also serves as lead director for the series. 

“Hijack” is created by George Kay (“Lupin,” “Criminal”) and Jim Field Smith (“Criminal,” “Litvinenko”), and the complete first season of the series is now streaming globally on Apple TV+.
