The Night Agent should expect another call, now that Netflix has renewed the highly bingeable thriller for a second, 10-episode season.
The news comes not one week after Season 1 hit the streaming giant on March 23.
Based on the novel of the same name by Matthew Quirk, The Night Agent follows Peter Sutherland (played by Gabriel Basso), a low-level FBI Agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings — until the night that it does. That urgent call, from Luciane Buchanan’s Rose Larkin, propels Peter into a fast-moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office.
The Season 1 cast also includes Hong Chau (as the White House chief of staff), Sarah Desjardins (as the VP’s daughter), Eve Harlow and Phoenix Raei (as assassins/lovebirds), Enrique Murciano (as a Secret Service bigwig), and Fola Evans-Akingbola and DB Woodside (as the Second Daughter’s Secret Service detail).
Of note, author Matthew Quirk has no second novel featuring FBI Agent Sutherland.
“The last week has been a whirlwind as we’ve finally been able to share The Night Agent with the world,” showrunner/EP Shawn Ryan said in a statement. “To see the tremendous reaction to the show has been a great joy and is a credit to our cast, our writers, our directors, our crew and our partners at Sony Pictures Television and Netflix. We couldn’t be any prouder or more excited to get cracking on Season 2 to share the further adventures of Night Action with our newfound fans.”
Jinny Howe, VP of Drama Series at Netflix, adds, “We’re proud to see The Night Agent deliver a breakout performance and become instantly embraced around the world. Shawn Ryan has created a spy thriller sensation that viewers cannot get enough of, with a stellar cast featuring Gabriel Basso, Luciane Buchanan and Hong Chau, and we’re here to bring them more of the action and suspense they love.”
Are you excited to get some more Night Action?
An incredible series! My wife and I couldn’t get enough after the 1st episode! It reels you in and we binged watch the series in 3 days at night!
Started Wednesday morning and finished it Wednesday night. Amazing.
Awesome program, can’t wait for the next season
What’s the hold up with Ginny & Georgia? It was #1 for over a month. In fact, Season 1 & 2 were #1 and #2 for nearly the entire month.
Literally popped into this thread to ask the same question!!! I want G&G S3!!!
I don’t understand the hold-up.
Peter & Rose must be in S2! Glad for Night Agent but also would like G&G confirmation asap!
I enjoyed the 1st season and loved the ending and direction it appears to be taking. Glad it was renewed.
So happy to hear it. Such a good show.
YES YES YES. So glad there is a season 2. This is an incredible brilliant show.
Great cast & well written show. Actually gives you something to look forward to on T.V..
The numbers must be phenomenal for a pickup this early. Either that, or it’s much cheaper to produce than it looks.
Loved it! Can’t wait to see what happens next!
Fantastic news!!! Glad to hear a second season is on its way.
I could not stop watching this action packed series. Loved the characters and cast and the story line.
I loved it, didn’t want to turn it off, started it Saturday and finished it Sunday! Great show.
I agree. Started it on Sunday and finished it Monday night.
Absolutely loved it and cannot wait for Season 2
One of the best shows I’ve seen in ages, hooked me in at the start and binged it over 2 days. Highly addictive and entertaining. Loved it from start to finish.
The Night Agent keeps u on the edge of your seat. The plot thickens, Season 2 can’t wait…
It’s on my watchlist. Just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I keep hearing good things about it.
Great news…fantastic series .Watched it in one day .
I’m addicted to watching The Night Agent. Binge watched in two nights. Can’t wait for that second call. Excellent cast and show.
Finished it in 3 days. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The two leads were excellent. Glad to see a quick renewal.
Great show. Can’t wait for the next season!
This show was rad. Very happy to have a second season.
I started it and binged it all over one night, no pun intended. Couldn’t stop. Was like not being able to put down a good book.
I Loved Season 1. The ending left me excited for a 2nd season so I am so happy to here it was renewed! Highly recommend. I binged the first season.
I liked season 1 and would watch season 2.
Really great show – no filler episodes. Hope certain characters who were fairly pivotal in the first season are back for number 2 because they were a great addition to the show. Either way I am looking forward to season 2.
Awesome news!!! Best thing I’ve seen in a long time!
Great show! Watched all 10 episodes in 2 days! Yes I am a couch potato! Knew it would have a 2nd season.
