Apple TV+ has renewed its Idris Elba-led thriller series “Hijack” for a second season. Elba will reprise his role as corporate negotiator Sam Nelson.

Unfolding in real-time, the first season dealt with the journey of a hijacked plane as it makes its way from Dubai to London over a seven-hour international flight.

As authorities on the ground scramble for answers, Elba’s Nelson tries to deal with the hijackers whilst also trying to get passengers onboard to calm down and potentially take back the plane.

At the same time a political drama unfolds on the ground as the government processes the demands of the terrorists who seem to have connections that go high up. Archie Panjabi, Christine Adams, Max Beesley, Eve Myles and Neil Maskell co-starred.

Details on the story for the second season are under wraps. Elba said in a statement about the renewal:

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

The first season became only the second series on Apple TV+ to earn a spot on Nielsen’s weekly top 10 streaming chart, in addition reviews were quite good.

Elba, Kay and Field Smith, Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Tom Nash will executive produce.
