Official teaser trailer, launched at New York Comic Con, reveals first look at thrilling third season
√ Ray Liotta joins cast as Gordon Evans, a powerful intelligence operative
Over the weekend at New York Comic Con, Amazon Prime Video debuted the teaser trailer for the third season of “Hanna,” which will premiere all six, one-hour episodes on Nov. 24 in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
As previously announced, Ray Liotta joins the cast for season three as Gordon Evans, a respected former military man and intelligence operative who wields incredible insider power. Evans sees himself as a visionary with a rigid moral code, a true patriot who will do what needs to be done to protect his country.
Season three of “Hanna” continues the journey of an extraordinary young woman, played by Esmé Creed-Miles, who was created by the sinister organization Utrax and trained to be an assassin. Hanna (Creed-Miles) is now secretly trying to destroy Utrax from the inside and free herself from its grasp with the help of her previous nemesis, former-CIA agent Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos). Together, they have coerced high-ranking Utrax agent John Carmichael (Dermot Mulroney) into aiding their mission, but her fellow young assassins, Sandy (Áine Rose Daly) and Jules (Gianna Kiehl), and new foes are starting to suspect Hanna’s plot. As Hanna moves closer to her goal, she begins to uncover not only a world-changing agenda, but the true power behind Utrax that stands between her and freedom.
At the New York Comic Con panel, “Hanna” executive producer Tom Coan said, “The journey is going to be bigger and better than before. … Everything lives at a much louder volume this year and it’s going to be exciting for audiences to see the next chapter of the story. We had two intentions in making this show – to be more sophisticated and dynamic – and that was the centerpiece on which everything was built. … We operated on the principle of trying to make it as exciting as possible.”
Mireille Enos raved about getting to work so much more with her co-star, Creed-Miles, and revealed this season Marissa and Hanna “treat each other like equals. … There’s a real acknowledgement of each other as two powerhouses.”
On the addition of Liotta to the cast, Coan shared, “You see Ray Liotta and he is menacing and dangerous and complicated, and that’s one of the powers he brings to the screen every time.”
Wrapping up the panel conversation, Creed-Miles ended with, “Hanna is really special. I love her very much. If she can reach young women in a way that I would have wanted to be reached … then that’s the best I could hope for.”
Hanna is written by David Farr (“The Night Manager”), who also serves as executive producer. The series is produced by NBCUniversal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group, Working Title Television and Amazon Studios.
