Amazon announced today that Hanna has been picked up for a second season on its Prime Video platform. The good news comes less than two weeks after the action drama's 8-episode freshman release.

So far the show has been garnering generally positive reviews from critics, while the streaming giant has said it has received a tremendous response from subscribers and is pleased with its performance.

Based on the 2011 film of the same name, the series follows an extraordinary teenage girl named Hanna, who was raised in isolation in a Polish forest by her ex-CIA operative father. On a mission to uncover the truth about who she really is, Hanna must evade a relentless off-book CIA agent who is pursuing her at all costs.

On a side note, fans of AMC's The Killing should recognize a couple of familiar faces, as Hanna reunites the drama's two leads Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman.

Look for Season 2 of Hanna in 2020.
