Apple’s ‘Hijack’ Season 2 Sees Toby Jones, Lisa Vicari & Christiane Paul Join Idris Elba

Filming is now underway

by Dave Elliott

Hijack Season 2 has started filming for Apple TV+ and will see Idris Elba joined by Toby Jones, Lisa Vicari and Christiane Paul.

Created by George Kay (“Lupin,” “Criminal”) & Jim Field Smith (“Criminal,” “Litvinenko”), the series stars Elba as corporate negotiator Sam Nelson. The first season saw Sam’s skills put to the test when hijackers take over the flight he is currently on. The report from Apple does not give anything away about what sticky situation Sam will find himself in when the drama returns. Although, given the casting, it seems likely Germany features in there somewhere…

Joining Elba in the second season will be acclaimed British actor Toby Jones, who is just coming off the back of ITV’s massively successful ‘Mr Bates vs The Post Office’, and the movie ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’ in 2023. He is, of course, well known for a multitude of roles from the voice of Dobby in the Harry Potter films, to playing Arnim Zola in the MCU, and won a BAFTA for his role in the beloved UK series ‘Detectorists’, plus many more!

German actress Lisa Vicari is probably best known internationally for her role in the Netflix series ‘Dark’. She also appeared in the Sky series ‘Django’, and German movie ‘Am Ende der Worte’.

Emmy-award-winning German actress Christiane Paul is probably best known internationally for her role as Europol Agent Katrin Jaeger in ‘FBI International’. She also starred in German comedy ‘Parlement’, and the brilliant Starz sci-fi drama ‘Counterpart’.

Since its worldwide debut, ‘Hijack’ has become one of the top dramas on Apple TV+, receiving wide acclaim from both critics and fans, quickly achieving a Certified Fresh critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes and landing on the Nielsen Streaming Originals Top 10 list. The “instantly enthralling” series has been hailed as “a shot of pure adrenaline,” praised as a “crisp and tense” drama that is “tension-filled and gripping, often putting the viewer on the edge of their seat,” with Elba starring as a “commanding leading man.”

The second season of ‘Hijack will be executive produced by Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Tom Nash at 60Forty Films (‘Slow Horses’, ‘The Essex Serpent’), alongside executive producers Kay and Field Smith’s own production company Idiotlamp Productions. Field Smith also serves as lead director for the series.

Season 1 of ‘Hijack‘ can be streamed on Apple TV+ right now. We don’t have a premiere date for Season 2 yet, but if you want to keep track of this or any other show, add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when they get a UK premiere date.
