Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Season 3: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

Tom Clancy's "Jack Ryan" has been away for a long, long time. The show originally debuted on Amazon Prime Video in August of 2018, with a second season following in October of 2019. But it has been a full three years since we've seen John Krasinski as Clancy's famed literary creation brought to life, in no small part due to the pandemic. But fear not! The show is set to return later this year and we have all of the details to get you ready for Mr. Ryan's return, which will pave the way for the show's fourth and final season.

Here is everything you need to know about "Jack Ryan" season 3.

Jack Ryan season 3 release date and where you can watch it

"Jack Ryan" season 3 will debut on Amazon Prime Video on December 21, 2022. Consider it an early Christmas present. The season will consist of eight episodes, all of which will stream exclusively on Prime Video. That means those who wish to watch it will need to be subscribed as it won't be available elsewhere.

What is Jack Ryan?

The show is based on Tom Clancy's book series/character of the same name. The show centers on CIA analyst Jack Ryan (John Krasinski) who was sitting behind a desk looking over financial transactions. But following the money leads him and his boss to a terrorist mastermind behind a horrific attack in Paris. With some help, Jack becomes an unexpected hero as he races to stop the extremist from unleashing an insidious assault on U.S. soil. But that was just the beginning.
