The eight episode first season was written by David Farr, co-writer of the original Hanna film. (Anna Ingeborg Topsoe penned the script for episode five.) Sarah Adina Smith, Jon Jones, Amy Neil, and Anders Engstrom each directed two episodes.
NBCUniversal International Studios, Working Title Television, and Amazon Studios produced the series. David Farr, Tom Coan, JoAnn Alfano, Andrew Woodhead, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, and Scott Nemes executive produced.
Raised in total seclusion in the remote woods of Eastern Europe, 15-year-old Hanna (Esmé Creed-Miles) has spent her entire young life training to fight those who hunt her and her mercenary father, Erik Heller (Joel Kinnaman). Her survivalist skills are finally tested when she and Erik are separated upon their discovery by a rogue CIA operative, Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos) and her team of agents.
Hanna has no choice but to embark on a perilous journey alone across Europe as she seeks to reunite with her father and evade – and ultimately take down – the dangerous agents who target them. Hanna’s isolated upbringing leads her to face particularly daunting physical and emotional challenges along the way, as she navigates an ever-deepening conspiracy – one that could be the undoing of both her and her father.
While building on the driving action-conspiracy narrative of his feature script, Farr has also reimagined Hanna’s world for the small-screen with compelling intimacy. Having a wider, longer scope in which to tell her story, Farr has woven a compelling coming-of-age story about a young woman learning about – and experiencing – for the first time what it is to be female in the modern world. Her strength and power as a trained fighter doesn’t preclude her from navigating the awkwardness of her burgeoning sexuality, changes in her body, relationships and other challenges that remind the audience that, underneath Hanna’s grit, is a young woman who ultimately yearns to feel normal.
