The CIA hero Jack Ryan is on the run in Season 3, but he’ll be back for one more season on Prime Video. What we know about the upcoming fourth season of Jack Ryan.
When Will Jack Ryan Season 4 Be Released?
Season 4 of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan was declared to be the last in May 2022, even while filming continued on the last season. Production on Jack Ryan Season 3 was slowed by the COVID-19 epidemic, extending the wait time between seasons to three years after Season 2 premiered in 2019.
In addition, John Krasinski was committed to Jack Ryan for four seasons, during which he starred, served as an EP, and, in the show’s final two seasons, ran the show as showrunner. Season 4 of Jack Ryan is expected to premiere in 2023.
Who Will Be Returning For Jack Ryan Season 4?
Jack, the CIA agent, will return in Season 4. It has been rumored that star John Krasinski’s original contract was for only four seasons, therefore this will likely be his final mission.
Even though season four of Jack Ryan is confirmed to be the final in the series, Krasinski has hinted that fans may not have seen the last of the CIA agent just yet.
A few months ago, he revealed to E! News that filming for Seasons 3 and 4 took place simultaneously. “When asked if this was his final performance as the character, he said, “I don’t know.” To keep the momentum rolling, I might do it in my living room tonight.”
Even though Jack is retiring from active duty at the end of Season 4, the Ryan universe will continue to exist, much to the delight of readers of Tom Clancy’s novels. Deadline reported in May 2022 that despite Amazon’s confirmation that season four would be the final, spin-offs were already in the works, including one starring Michael Pea.
In season four, Pea will join the cast as Ding Chavez, a character familiar to readers of the Clancy novels. Pea is most known for his appearances in Narcos: Mexico and Ant-Man. He’s an LA-based CIA guy who shows up in a number of Jack Ryan novels and the film adaptation of Clear and Present Danger from 1994. (where he was played by Raymond Cruz).
Jack’s girlfriend Cathy Mueller, played by Abbie Cornish, will make a comeback appearance for the series’ final season. Cathy has not been seen on the show since season one.
Fans of the show will recall that Cathy was still with Jack at the end of the first season and was never written out of the story. Jack did reveal he was single in one episode of season two, but other than that, she has been MIA both then and thus far in season three. Deadline, however, claims that she will return for the fourth season, though it is unclear how she will be brought back into the fold.
It has not yet been announced which other cast members will return, but given both CIA agent James Greer (Wendell Pierce) and former agent Mike November (Michael Kelly) made it through to the season three finale, it seems likely that they will both appear in the final season.

Speculation On The Jack Ryan Season 4 Plot
Although they are not direct adaptations of the books, the Jack Ryan series draw heavily from the works of author Jack Ryan. It’s hard to say where the spy drama will go from here, but we can assume there will be plenty of action sequences involving guns and foreign locales.
Though he does eventually become president in the books, we highly doubt we will ever see Ryan reach that position in real life. There is, however, a clear echo of Clear and Present Danger in the show’s apparent adaptation of the plot points in which Jack uncovers a conspiracy within the CIA itself and must work to eradicate the corruption that has permeated the agency.
There Are Plans For A Jack Ryan Spinoff
With the conclusion of Jack Ryan after season 4, the Tom Clancy series is expected to continue with a spinoff focusing on Domingo “Ding” Chavez (Michael Pea), another of Clancy’s novel heroes. Ding Chavez is the chief operating officer of Rainbow Six in Tom Clancy’s Ryanverse and has appeared in 22 novels, 7 of which are Jack Ryan novels.
There is some confusion as to whether Without Remorse, in which Michael B. Jordan as John Clark, is a prequel to the Jack Ryan films or a spinoff starring Ding Chavez. But let’s hope that John Krasinski’s final season as Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is as successful as the previous three.
