Apple TV+ has greenlit a second season of thriller Hijack, with Idris Elba returning to star.

Launching last year, season one of the real time drama 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.

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

The second season 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. Elba is also an executive producer, while Field Smith is also the lead director.
