Just one week after its premiere, the spy thriller phenomenon “The Night Agent” has been officially given a second season by Netflix.
The streaming service Netflix has announced that a second season of one of its most popular ever shows will begin. With certain producer-added features, the series is based on the Matthew Quirk novel of the same name.
It centers on a young FBI agent who gets sucked into a risky plot involving a White House mole. However, when will the new season debut? How many episodes will there be in total? Here is all the information you need to know about season 2 of The Night Agent.
When will season 2 of The Night Agent be available?
A second season has been formally ordered by Netflix, and it will premiere in 2024 with 10 new episodes. Producers of the spy series announced its comeback on March 29, less than a week after it made its Netflix debut.
‘To witness terrific reception to the show has been a huge joy and is a credit to our cast, our writers, our directors, our crew, and our partners at Sony Pictures Television and Netflix,’ said the executive producer of the, Shawn Ryan.
“We couldn’t be more proud or more eager to get started on Season 2 to share the ongoing adventures of Night Action with our newfound fans,” the production team exclaimed.
The continuance of the series has also been assured by Katherine Pope, President of Sony Pictures Television.
“We are thrilled to see The Night Agent become an instant hit worldwide and can’t wait to continue telling this story with our remarkable cast, creative director Shawn Ryan, and our wonderful partners at Netflix,” she said.
The second season of “The Night Agent” has not yet started filming. Production has most certainly been delayed by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike, however script work may have already started before the strike.
How many episodes can we expect?
The Night Agent’s second season will have ten brand-new episodes, much like the first one.
The duration of each episode has not yet been determined, although it is anticipated that they will last 45 to 55 minutes on average, as was the case for the first season.
Many significant plots were resolved in the season 1 finale, although more may have been included. The series has the ability to introduce fresh people and stories.
These topics will probably be covered in The Night Agent season 2 in addition to carrying on the action and tension from the first season.
