Amazon Prime Video's Reacher is a series about ex-military drifter Jack Reacher. The same Jack Reacher as the one played by Tom Cruise in two movies. Based on a series of Lee Childs' novels, this Jack Reacher bares no relation to Jack Ryan, the ex-marine played by John Krasinski in another Prime Video original (also Chris Pine, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Alec Baldwin in seperate Tom Clancy movies.)

So with all that in mind, if the Google mystics have somehow led you to the right place, you'll be happy to know there's only one place you can find the Reacher series streaming in Australia and that's with an Amazon Prime Video subscription.

When do new episodes of Reacher release?

Complete season drops.

As is often the case with streaming originals, Amazon has released the first season of Reacher all at once on the 5th of February 2022. However, the second season launched with three episodes on 16 December 2023 while the following five episodes were released on a weekly basis up until 19 January 2024.

It's fairly safe to assume that season three will follow a similar path as season two at this point. Season three has started filming and while there's no confirmation on release dates, Reacher season 3 is likely to drop between December 2024 and January 2025 if it sticks to its current cadence. 

What is the Reacher TV series about?

Is Tom Cruise in it?

Adapted from Lee Childs' crime thriller novels (specifically Killing Floor and Bad Luck and Trouble,) Reacher follows the exploits of the ex-military cop come helpful drifter in his calorie-killing journey across the US of A.

Season one sees Mr Reacher accused of coldblooded murder in rural Georgia before teaming up with the local cops to help find out who really done it... with his fists. Season two, on the other hand, follows Reacher to New York Citay where he assembles the old crew to investigate a murder... with his fists. 

While both seasons of Reacher has an a fairly meaty overarching story, many episodes follow the old pummelling-of-the-week structure.

Watching this blow-in beat the living snot out of no-good scum each and every week is what keeps viewers coming back for more. 

 

What is Amazon Prime Video?

Amazon Prime Video is a streaming service like Netflix or Stan, except that includes plenty of benefits outside of TV and movie streaming. Your $9.99 per month subscription gets you access to originals like The Rings of Power  and The Boys and licensed TV shows and movies like The Northman and House, but it also offers all the perks of a regular Amazon Prime membership, such as free shipping and exclusive discounts. It also comes with a 30-day free trial.  

Amazon Prime Video doesn't have everything, but what it does have in terms of  original content is generally quite good and the cost of keeping up with it is significantly less than most of the competition.
