Critic Consensus: Jack Ryan's second season is both more refined and more predictable, doubling down on its espionage set-pieces while toning down its titular character's moral complexities to create a more straight-forward spy show.

News & Interviews for Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan: Season 2
Offering respite from today's political stridency, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan serves up something reassuringly nostalgic: a conservatism that isn't just quietly confident, but unabashedly idealistic.
John Krasinski does an exceptional job portraying Jack Ryan in a believable way. The Jack Ryan series is engaging as an espionage thriller should and must be. Absolutely binge-worthy.
One wishes that more attention was paid to the script itself, ironing out character motivations, not building in complexity for complexity's sake, and growing Jack Ryan from a gritty upstart to more of a seasoned pro.
Jack Ryan Season 2 jettisons some of what made Season 1 work in exchange for a slower pace and, unfortunately, far less interesting narrative.
It certainly does seem that show runners Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland have made a conscious decision to cut loose some of Jack's complexities, and to try to frame him as a more conventional, straight-up action hero.
