"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," said Jay Hunt, Creative Director for Europe, AppleTV+. 

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