About the Plot
As we know, the series is based on the movie “Hanna” which was released in 2011. The only difference is that, in the series, the makers have shown Hanna’s life in depth. The basic storyline is about a man recruiting pregnant women into a CIA Program named “Ultrax” and enhancing the child’s DNA with 3% of wolf DNA to create ‘super-soldiers’. The man (Erik Heller) falls in love with Johanna, who is Hanna’s mother. He rescues baby Hanna and they then flee. Hanna is shown to be curious about the individuality of her name, the meaning of her existence and so on, at the age of 15. She still lives with Erik in Poland since he is the only man she knows.
It may be safe to assume that season 3 shall be released sometime in late 2021. Based on the number of episodes season 1 and 2 consisted of, season 3 might also consist of 8 episodes in total.
