Hanna season 2 arrives on Amazon Prime Video on July 3rd but just who plays new spymaster John Carmichael?

When it was announced in 2017 that Hanna, the 2011 Saoirse Ronan-starring film, would be adapted into a TV series, there was a lot of scepticism.

However, fast-forward to July 2020 and that TV series is one of Amazon Prime Video’s flagship series and the hype surrounding season 2 of the show is quickly building.

Like many a series, Hanna season 2 looks set to build on the story of the teenage super soldier and, as well as bringing back characters from season 1, season 2 is set to add a host of new additions.

Chief among the new characters is John Carmichael, a fearsome new spymaster in the series, but just who is set to play this enigmatic character?
