Edris Elba is floored by the response to Highjack.

The star and executive producer of the Apple TV+ thriller, which has just been renewed for Season 2, commented on the “overwhelming audience response [to] season one. It’s top secret what new situation unfolds for Sam Nelson but I can assure you we will bring the high octane back!” said Elba.

Told in real time, the show follows the journey of a hijacked plane as it makes its way to London over a seven-hour flight, and authorities on the ground scramble for answers.

Season 2 of Hijack will be executive produced by Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta and Tom Nash at 60Forty Films, alongside executive producers Kay and Field Smith’s own production company Idiotlamp Productions.

“Global audiences were on tenterhooks watching Idris’s riveting performance in Hijack, and we’re thrilled to be working again with 60Forty and Idiotlamp on an equally compelling season two,” said Jay Hunt, creative director, Europe, Apple TV+.

Field Smith also serves as lead director for the series.

Hijack is created by George Kay (Lupin) and Jim Field Smith (Criminal).

The complete 7 episode first season is available to stream now on Apple TV+.
