The Night Agent Season 2 Renewed By Netflix

The Night Agent Season 2 Renewed By Netflix

With the entire season 1 now binge-able since March 23, Netflix’s newest action drama series gets renewed for The Night Agent Season 2. Series fans can now expect ten more episodes from The Night Agent, continuing Shawn Ryan’s Night Action world.

There seems to be a growing appetite for conspiracy drama and action movies aside from the horror and superhero genre. Netflix could very well have The Night Agent as its answer to what some fans have been asking for. What do they watch until the new Mission Impossible, Jason Bourne, or James Bond movie comes along?

If it’s any indication, season 1 of The Night Agent debuted on Netflix’s English Television Series List with 168.70M hours viewed. It solidly claimed the third spot for premiere week of viewing among every season 1 tv show and came within the Top 10 in almost a hundred countries.

Netflix Tudum posted the good news for new fans of the series based on Matthew Quirk’s novels. In celebration of the renewal of the series on Netflix, creator Shawn Ryan stated:

The last week has been a whirlwind as we’ve finally been able to share The Night Agent with the world. 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.

The series stars Gabriel Basso as Peter Sutherland. Sutherland is an FBI Agent who uncovers a conspiracy and saves the nation from possible terrorist attacks. Together with Basso is Luciane Buchanan, who portrays a former Silicon Valley CEO named Rose Larkin.

Needless to say, SPOILERS AHEAD, SO BEWARE! There are still major story elements that are left hanging by the end of season 1. This also bore considerable weight on the possibility of the series getting a second season. New fans are happy to learn they didn’t have to wait months to learn that the follow-up on the story is in the pipeline.

By the end of the first season, the two characters are in the position of a new beginning in their respective professional lives. While Sutherland gets promoted into the more clandestine elite organization called Night Action and will work directly under the President of the United States, Larkin is about to continue her own professional journey back in Silicon Valley.

The FBI Agent and Ex CEO developed a relationship more than just professional, and as a new couple by the end of the season, physically parting ways could mean a few other things. Showrunner Ryan said:

What does Peter getting on this plane and going somewhere (presumably overseas to enter into some new wild adventure) mean, with Rose going back to California to try to pursue her Silicon Valley dreams again? We certainly have some initial ideas.

Meanwhile, actress Buchanan has her hopes for the tech-savvy character:

I really hope that she continues on her journey. [The ending] leaves it really open-ended… I also want closure for her, I’m like, ‘This girl needs a lot of therapy after everything she’s been through.’

Definitely, these loose ends will have some significant play into the follow-up season. Ryan said about a villain’s escape in the series:

Maybe we’ll deal with him again in some way.

Basso, understanding Sutherland’s principles, said:

Due to his (Sutherland’s) belief in due process, he’s not going to be bummed she’s (Diane Farr played by Hong Chau) alive. But if Farr eludes justice, he’ll be a little more wary of Travers. To be a traitor and not receive justice is not okay with Peter.

Unlike other titles from original Netflix series that debuted last year, The Night Agent got its green light for its sequel series within just days of its streaming premiere. Leaves us to wonder what exactly are the conditions or the algorithm that Netflix has to get their titles that elusive light.

There are even titles that a lot of people are highly expecting to continue, only to find out a few months after that it is the last they’ll ever see for the series. Nevertheless, we are of course happy that Netflix has found a new series that’s very well received by its viewers.

The Night Agent Season 1 gets a good 74% rating on the Tomatometer with 19 Reviews and a higher audience score of 81% from more than 250 ratings.

While some are saying the series utilizes general cliches for its story to progress, there are those who are appreciative of its delivery enough to keep watching through the ten episodes.
