Amazon Prime’s web series Hanna had its first season last year in 2019. The series belongs to the action, drama, adventure genres. The series draws inspiration and is based on a 2011 film of the same name. Hanna is the brainchild of David Farr. He had created and scripted the series, and Sarah Adina Smith was the person behind the wheels for this series.
In 2017, Amazon announced that they would be making a series based on the movie. And they gave the go-ahead as soon as David Farr was roped in. He was the writer of the movie too. So, him being part of the series was a crucial point. The first season came out on March 29, 2019. The whole lot of eight episodes put out on Amazon Prime on the date. Prior to that, we had a kind of a trial run in February. That was on February 3, when Amazon gave us a 24-hour preview to check it out.
The series deals with a familiar topic: secret services, super-soldiers, secret programs, and much more. The protagonist of the series is a 15-year-old girl named Hanna (played by Esme Creed-Miles). She is living with her father in a forest in Poland.
Apparently, both of them were part of the CIA’s super-soldier program titled ULTRIX. This program aims to work on unborn children’s genetics in order to make them superior to the rest. Her father, as she thinks, is Erik, who worked for the CIA, but left the program along with her mother after falling in love with her. Later the program is scrapped, and the CIA tries to eliminate all the kids who were part of it. This is the main plotline of the series.
RECEPTION AND RENEWAL
The series opened up to average reviews. Critics gave it a rating of 67% through Rotten Tomatoes. But, fans took a liking to it and gave a score of 7.5. Nevertheless, Amazon Prime announced a renewal soon after the release of the first season. They haven’t put out an exact release date. But, we guess it to be around the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.
Apart from that, very little news has come out about any other part of the project. Maybe when this coronavirus issue is controlled, we may get a clearer picture. But until that, we have no other option rather than to wait and keep guessing.
