Reacher's Showrunner Explains Why We Won't See Finlay Or Roscoe In Season 2
Showrunner Nick Santora has declared his intention to keep Amazon’s “Reacher” as close to the original Lee Child novels as possible. Child wrote his former army man as a traveling hero who wanders the U.S., so fans will see the hulking protagonist move on to a new location in Season 2, meaning some standout characters from Season 1 will not be returning.
Santora confirmed that characters Finlay and Roscoe will not be appearing in the new season. He said, “I love the characters of Finlay and Roscoe. If there was a way to organically have them somehow pop in once in a while into Reacher's life, wonderful. But we're not gonna force anything and we’re not gonna do anything that messes up the lore of Reacher.”
The book series has seen Reacher visit a new place with every novel, and with Season 2 adapting “Bad Luck and Trouble” and casting several actors as NYPD cops, fans can expect the bulky bruiser to be in the Big Apple next. Reacher’s former army comrade Frances Neagley will be back for Season 2, but beyond that, there’ll be a whole new supporting cast.
