Chris Pratt Reassures THE TERMINAL LIST Fans: ‘We Are Working Away’ on Season 2

By Movieguide® Contributor

Chris Pratt gave fans of THE TERMINAL LIST hope for a second season during a recent appearance on the Danger Close podcast. 

The first season of THE TERMINAL LIST premiered on Amazon Prime on July 1, and viewers loved it. 

Movieguide® previously reported on the show’s success:

Despite mainstream media’s efforts to cancel actor Chris Pratt for his conservative views and biblical values, the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY actor won the most recent battle after fans praised his show, THE TERMINAL LIST.

While critics on the review site Rotten Tomatoes labeled the Amazon Prime show as “rotten,” fan reviews gave it a 94% “fresh” score.

Although the series does contain excessive violence and language, fans defended the show’s patriotic focus.

According to Fox News, the JURASSIC WORLD star posted a series of reports on his Instagram story that highlighted THE TERMINAL LIST’s success despite “woke critics.”

According to Nielsen reports, at least 1.6 billion minutes were devoted to streaming Pratt’s new show. Additionally, the official Instagram page for the show reported last month that THE TERMINAL LIST was the No. 1 show on Prime Video.

With critics slamming the series, some fans were worried if the story would continue, but Pratt has put those fears to rest.

“To the rabid fans of THE TERMINAL LIST out there, you have nothing to worry about,” he shared. “We love you and appreciate your support. It’s our life’s mission to make sure you can come back to the well. We are working away.”

Much of THE TERMINAL LIST’s success comes from its portrayal of veterans.

Movieguide® previously reported:

THE TERMINAL LIST author Jack Carr clapped back at the 43 percent critic score for Amazon’s #1 Prime Video series of the same name on Tucker Carlson’s show last Friday.

Though the show has garnered a low critic score, audiences love THE TERMINAL LIST.

“The 95 percent viewer rating, audience rating, makes it all worth it,” Carr said. “We didn’t make it for the critics. We made it for those in the arena. We made it for the soldier, sailor, airman and Marine that went downrange to Iraq and Afghanistan, so they could sit on the couch and say, ‘Hey, these guys put in the work. They put in the effort to make something special and make a show that speaks to them.’ And that 95 percent rating lets me know that we at least got close.”

While audiences have enjoyed the action-packed series, critics find only flaws. When asked about this phenomenon, Carr said that the low critic score “falls right in line with everything that I understand about the current culture and climate in America right now, and it seems to have triggered quite a few of these critics.”

Carr then shared The Daily Beast’s reaction to the series, which they called “an unhinged right-wing revenge fantasy.” Carr found this “odd because right, left, conservative, liberal are not even mentioned in the show.”

However, Carr believes this sentiment stems from a protagonist “competent with weapons and tactics. He’s strong. He holds those in power accountable, and that could be unsettling for some, particularly some maybe senior members of the military who have failed upwards over the last 20 years.”

Another critic asked what to call this show, and Carr quipped, “the number one series on Prime Video.”

While critics continue to bemoan the series’ success, Pratt reiterated Carr’s perspective in a recent Instagram post, saying, “This is a series made for the special operator, the veteran, the warrior, and anyone who wants to watch a…good show.”
