Hanna Season 2 Review

Tomorrow Amazon drops a new season of Hanna, so should you spend your weekend watching?

When we left Hanna at the end of season 1 , Hanna (Esmé Creed-Miles) freed genetically-enhanced super soldier Clara (Yasmin Monet-Prince) from the UTRAX facility in Romania, a move which saw Hanna lose her father figure and mentor Erik (Joel Kinnaman).

When we pick up in season 2, Hanna is honouring Erik by staying the wilderness with Clara, who’s need for answers could spell disaster for the duo’s quiet existence.

Marissa Wiegler’s (Mireille Enos) shifted motivations also come into play after letting Hanna and company go in the finale. She soon finds herself in a dangerous situation with the CIA and the new UTRAX program director John Carmichael (Dermot Mulroney), who’s more interested in his own shifty agenda than where Marissa’s loyalties lie.

We also find out what happens to the girls in the UTRAX program, and just what the program entails moving forward. The girls are placed at the Meadows where they eat, sleep and train to be future killers, and it’s a stark contrast to Hanna and her upbringing.

Throughout the season, dynamic performances are given by all involved as the writers delve deeper into a rich storytelling environment.
