Alan Ritchson in Reacher

As Reacher Season 2 came to Amazon Prime Video, fans saw several important character deaths throughout the season's eight episodes.

The hit Prime Video series brought a massive cast of stars for its Season 2 slate, although fans were well aware that not everybody would make it to the end of the eight-episode slate.

Reacher and his team were responsible for plenty of deaths all season as they did their best to survive plenty of other attacks, with the kill count for Season 2 being something fans were anxious to learn more about as the show came back.

Every Character Who Dies in Reacher Season 2

Ahead is a list of all 20 characters who met their end in Reacher Season 2 along with the cause of death for each one.
