The official synopsis of The Terminal List as per Amazon reads: “Reece returns home to his family with conflicting memories of the event and questions about his culpability. However, as new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him, endangering not only his life, but the lives of those he loves.”
For those who have already watched the debut season, you’re now thinking about whether or not Amazon will renew the series for another season run. Let’s find out below.
Will There Be a Season 2 of The Terminal List?
Amazon Prime Video has yet to renew the series for a second installment. Given the success of the fires season, it’s highly likely that fans will get to see the second season of this action-packed series. Just before the release, novelist Jack Carr, lead writer of the series Dave DiGilio, and director Antoine Fuqua sat down with Screen Rant and talked about the chances of the series continuing further. “Fingers crossed,” confessed DiGilio, about a second season. “That’s the goal,” Fuqua added. “We certainly went into it with that big picture of wanting to do that. So, if we get blessed and [are] successful, Amazon will do it again.”
Jack Carr teased, “I don’t know what their problem is.” However, Amazon hasn’t made its final call on a follow-up. This doesn’t mean that things aren’t going well. Dave DiGilio spoke of the writing squad having a “roadmap” for “each season” previously of them. The functional expression is “each,” which signifies that the show can go beyond season 2.
In an interview with Digital Spy, A-list actor Chris Pratt was asked about a potential follow-up series he said, “Well, Jack Carr’s written five extraordinary books.”
The actor added, “He’s quite a prolific author, and they’re all reaching the top of the New York Times’ Best Seller list. I think it’d be fantastic to keep it going.”

What can we expect from Season 2 of The Terminal List?
If a second season is renewed, the series will be adapted from the second book of the novel by Jack Carr. The first season covered the first book and there are four more to go. This indicates that the show can go for at least a total of five seasons.
Speaking to Collider, Chris Pratt was asked whether he would like the story of James Reece to continue the actor stated, “Yeah, of course. I’m a huge fan of the books. I’ve read all five of them. I just finished ‘In the Blood.’ I think it’s the best one yet. It’s really, really great. The first book is fantastic,” he added.
“Jack [Carr] is a prolific writer. A new novel every year is pretty intense, but that’s just the work ethic of these guys. Every person that we employed that was a former spec operator, they’re the first to arrive and the last to leave. They’re doing their job, plus volunteering to do anyone else’s job. It’s all hands on deck,” he explained. “It’s why our military personnel make such an amazing transition into the film and television industry, and I hope to see more of that.”
Pratt continued, “We employed a lot of veterans on this show. But yeah, I’d love to [do more]. There are certain aspects that may be complicated. If you follow the series of books, the second book takes place on location. For me, I have a little bit of a rule with my own family at home, where I have to limit the amount of location work that I do. I was able to squeeze this in between two location jobs because it shot in L.A. If we continue the series, and it becomes location work, I have to justify whether or not I’m gonna be giving up a movie to do a season of this show, which I very well could. Time will tell. I would love to.
“I think it would be fantastic. I love the character. The stories get better. I love the bonds and the relationships that I forged with the creative team, making this, and I’d love to move forward, working with them. It’s just a matter of how full my dance card is and when I can fit it in,” he concluded.
