Hijack Season 2: Plot

Currently, we cannot predict if there is a second season of the series. However, we know that, Hijack follows businessman Sam Nelson as he travels on a typical commercial flight from Dubai to London when it is hijacked and the passengers are held hostage by a group of criminals. The story is portrayed in real-time.

Some people want to confront the group as they storm the plane at the start of the opening double bill, but others are too afraid to even glance up from their seats. However, Sam is aware that gaining the confidence of the main hijacker Stuart (Neil Maskell) will give him the best opportunity of returning home to see his family. In the brief moments before the plane’s Wifi is turned off, Sam is able to text his estranged wife Marsha. When Marsha becomes aware of the dilemma on board, she asks her new partner, DI Daniel Farrell (Max Beesley), to make some calls. This sets off a series of events that result in counterterrorism agent Zahra Gahfoor (Archie Panjabi) keeping an eye on the situation from the ground in London.

Hijack Season 2: Release Date

The series has premiered on Apple TV+ on June 28, 2023. We think it is safe to speculate that it would take time for the network official to notify the fans if there is another season of the series.
