Idris Elba to Return for Season 2 of 'Hijack'

Apple TV+ just gave the Idris Elba-fronted series Hijack a green light on Season 2.

The popular series, also executive produced by Elba, is from creators George Kay and Jim Field Smith.

Jay Hunt, creative director, Europe, Apple TV+, said in a statement, “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,” 

Then Elba said, “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!”

Here’s the official season 1 description:

Told in real-time, Hijack is a tense thriller that follows the journey of a hijacked plane as it makes its way to London over a seven-hour flight, and authorities on the ground scramble for answers. Elba will star as ‘Sam Nelson,’ an accomplished negotiator in the business world who needs to step up and use all his guile to try and save the lives of the passengers — but, his high-risk strategy could be his undoing. Panjabi will play the role of ‘Zahra Gahfoor,’ a counter-terrorism officer who is on the ground when the plane is hijacked and becomes part of the investigation.

The rundown on the cast members from the first season: Christine Adams, Max Beesley, Eve Myles, Neil Maskell, Jasper Britton, Harry Michell, Aimee Kelly, Mohamed Elsandel, and Ben Miles.

Season 2 includes executive producers Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, and Tom Nash with 60Forty Films and executive producers Kay and Field Smith’s Idiotlamp Productions. Field Smith also serves as director for the series.
