Will there be a Season 2 of the Apple TV+ series Hijack – renewed or canceled status


We discuss whether there will be a Season 2 of the Apple TV+ series Hijack and its renewed or canceled status. 

Hijack is an original thriller created by Jim Field Smith and George Kay (Lupin), the duo behind the Netflix Criminal series. This seven-part Apple original series is told in real-time, focusing on a hijacked plane journeying from Dubai to Heathrow.

Business negotiator and passenger Sam Nelson (Idris Elba) attempts to keep the peace on Flight KA29 while a group of armed terrorists desperately try to maintain some form of control without having to resort to killing any innocent bystanders.

The terrorists are led by Stuart Atterton (Neil Maskell), who is constantly at odds with Sam. Although the negotiator manages to work his magic, he slowly starts to get under Stuart’s skin as the flight progresses. The crew sends a secret SOS message, and Sam text messages his partner on the ground. Word quickly spreads of the hijacking.

As tensions rise both in the air and on the ground, plans are put in place to take down the criminals. Yet these frantic schemes continually go off course. Can they stop the terrorists before it is too late?

This gripping thriller has already become an extremely popular series for Apple TV+, but will they be renewing the show for a second season?

A second season of Hijack has yet to be confirmed by Apple TV+. The show has been billed as a miniseries, which means that it is unlikely to warrant a follow-up season. It is safe to assume that the creators will conclude the show’s narrative by the end of the final installment.

Hijack has been a huge success for Apple TV+, though, so there could still be hope for a renewal, even though it was never intended to carry on past the first season. The show currently holds an 87% certified fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes and has an IMDB rating of 7.8/10 from over 8k votes. The show was praised for its pacing and its effective building of tension.

Meanwhile, the show is currently sitting at number two in the Apple TV+ charts, just behind the seemingly unstoppable Ted Lasso. This proves that Hijack is a popular series, without a doubt, one that has quickly won over a fan base in only a handful of weeks.

Apple TV+ may want to reconsider their options moving forward with this one. They have been known to renew miniseries before if they are successful. That being said, I’m going to predict that Hijack is not renewed for a second season.

I would much prefer this show to conclude as a stand-alone narrative than needlessly carry on. I’m guessing fans will think differently, though; they may be eager for a second season after all.

As always, we will keep you posted on any updates on the pending renewal of Hijack.

    What happened to the two men at the farm? That could be a start for seasons two. Best show I have seen in a long time.
