Dermot Mulroney (Homecoming, My Best Friend’s Wedding), Anthony Welsh (Fleabag, Black Mirror), Severine Howell-Meri (Doctors, Casualty), Cherelle Skeete (Ordinary Lies, Call the Midwife), and newcomer Gianna Kiehl have joined the season 2 cast of Amazon’s Hanna, from NBCUniversal International Studios, Amazon Studios and Working Title Television. They join Esmé Creed-Miles, who returns for the second season in the title role of Hanna along with Mireille Enos, who reprises her role as CIA operative Marissa Wiegler. Filming for Season 2 is underway in the UK and France.
Written by David Farr (The Night Manager), who co-wrote the original film, Hanna is equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama. It follows the journey of an extraordinary teenage girl, determined to escape from the grasp of the shadowy Utrax organization and its ruthless agenda. Farr will also direct episodes for the first time this season, along with French director Eva Husson (Girls of the Sun, Bang Gang) and Icelandic director Ugla Hauksdóttir (Trapped).
