What’s the series all about?
Jack Ryan is a television series that premiered on Amazon Prime in 2018, starring John Krasinski as the titular character. The series is based on the Tom Clancy novels and follows the story of Jack Ryan, a CIA analyst, as he uncovers a dangerous terrorist plot.
With the success of the first three seasons, fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the fourth season, which is currently in production.
Jack Ryan Season 4 filming updates
The production on season 4 has been officially confirmed and filming began in October 2021. Filming on the fourth season has actually finished as they filmed seasons 3 and 4 back to back. This news was confirmed by John Krasinski during an interview with The Wrap. Krasinski confirmed that Seasons 3 and 4 were shot back-to-back.
Here’s what Krasinski had to say on the matter:
We already finished [Season 4], we actually shot three and four back to back. So that was the whole idea, knowing that the fans would go so long in between two and three, we decided to do three and four back to back so that they wouldn’t have to wait that long again.
This means that there will not be such a long gap between seasons 3 and 4 as there was between seasons 2 and 3. There was a three and a half year gap between those two seasons!
Where was Season 4 filmed?
Season 4 began filming in February 2022. They filmed most of the fourth season of the show around Croatia. However, in May 2022, filming on the series took place on the Spanish island Gran Canaria, according to Canarian Weekly
Krasinski also mentioned filming in New York, Los Angeles, Budapest, Slovakia, and Prague. However, he didn’t specify whether those were locations for season 3 or season 4. Here’s what Krasinski had to say on the matter during an interview with The Wrap:
What an incredible challenge that was for all of us to be [filming for] what was over a year and a half. We had a small break in the middle. But we were essentially away from our families for over a year and a half. And not just New York to L.A., we’re in Budapest and Slovakia, and Prague and wherever else. Canary Islands. It’s a blessing to do it, but it’s tough nonetheless.
