Just one week after it’s premiere, Netflix has given a quick second season renewal to the conspiracy thriller series The Night Agent. Netflix released two new posters announcing the renewal.
The series premiered last Friday and shot to Netflix’s #1 most watched production in the week, garnering 168.71 million hours viewed according to the streamer. The Night Agent is based on the book by Matthew Quirk and developed by Shawn Ryan.
“The last week has been a whirlwind as we’ve finally been able to share The Night Agent with the world,” Ryan said of the series’ quick success. “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.”
“We’re proud to see The Night Agent deliver a breakout performance and become instantly embraced around the world,” Netflix Vice President of Drama Jinny Chau said. “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.”
The Night Agent is a sophisticated, character-based, action-thriller centering on 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, propelling him into a fast moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office.
The series stars Gabriel Basso, Luciane Buchanan, Hong Chau, D. B. Woodside, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Eve Harlow, Phoenix Raei, Enrique Murciano, and Sarah Desjardins.
