It’s time to return to the skies as the Idris Elba-produced series, Hijack returns for Season Two on Apple TV+.
Told almost in real-time, the series follows Sam Nelson (Elba) on a seven-hour plane ride from Dubai to London which is hijacked by terrorists. A seasoned negotiator, Nelson quickly steps in to try and diffuse the situation before anyone gets killed – but soon realizes there is more to the hijackers’ plot than first seems. Archie Panjabi, Christine Adams, Max Beesley, and Ben Miles also starred.
Idris will also return to executive produce the show alongside creators George Kay and Jim Field Smith’s company Idiotlamp Productions.
No plot details for the new season have been revealed, but last summer Elba indicated that he come back for another season if he and the team could find the right storyline.
