Idris Elba will get a second run in Hijack. According to Variety, Apple TV+ will set up a second season for the show where Elba stars as Sam Nelson.
In season one, Nelson was a passenger on an hour plane ride from Dubai to London that terrorists hijacked. Nelson was able to diffuse the situation, uncovering the mystery along the way.
“I was floored by the overwhelming audience response after Season 1,” Elba said. “It’s top secret what new situation unfolds for Sam Nelson, but I can assure you we will bring the high octane back!”
“Global audiences were on tenterhooks watching Idris’ riveting performance in ‘Hijack,’ and we’re thrilled to be working again with 60Forty and Idiotlamp on an equally compelling Season 2,” said Jay Hunt, Apple TV+’s creative director for Europe.
