The Night Manager Season 2 Coming – Tom Hiddleston Returning

The Night Manager Season 2 Is Coming With Tom Hiddleston Returning

The 2016 BBC series The Night Manager is going to return for a second season with Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Jonathan Pine. This is quite a surprise considering the original series was released in the first quarter of 2016.

The Night Manager’s first season had only six episodes. The show was made in partnership with BBC, AMC, and the Ink Factory. The show was based on the book of the same title by John le Carré, which was released in 1993.

The show focuses on Jonathan Pine, played by Tom Hiddleston, a former soldier who is a night manager of a luxury hotel. He gets recruited by The Foreign office task force to work undercover to investigate Richard Roper, played by Hugh Laurie. The show was a success and had a lot of high praise. It has also had several nominations and has won several awards, including three awards at the Golden Globes and two at the Emmys.

Because of this, many fans of the show wanted a follow-up. The end of the first season did hint at that possibility. However, that was seven years ago. That’s a long time to wait for a second season.

A report from Deadline tells us that the series is finally being developed by the BBC and Amazon Prime Video. What’s more, it’s been revealed that two seasons have been ordered. So far, it hasn’t received the green light yet. But it is said that the second season is scheduled to start filming later this year. Lead star Tom Hiddleston is said to be returning to the series. That is exciting news, indeed.

We wonder where the series will go after the events of The Night Manager. Will the next two seasons be adapted from John le Carré’s books, or will they tell an original story? Considering that The Night Manager’s BBC adaptation did change some aspects of it when you compare it to the book.

The writer who adapted The Night Manager for TV, David Farr, is set to return to write the second season. John le Carré’s books have been adapted several times before. The first film that was adapted for the big screen was The Spy Who Came in from the Cold back in 1965. 2018’s The Little Drummer Girl was also based on le Carré’s work which starred Florence Pugh.

The Ink Factory handles John le Carré’s rights since the company is owned by le Carré’s sons, Simon and Stephen Cornwell. Other than le Carré adaptations, they have also made movies such as Hotel Artemis, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, and Fighting with my Family. The Ink Factory has also helped develop video games like The Pathless and ABZÛ.

The Night Manager had an impressive cast. Hugh Laurie, who is known for Why Didn’t They Ask Evans and House, was very impressive as the main antagonist. Olivia Coleman is known for The Crown and, more recently, Heartstopper. She was recently in the MCU’s Secret Invasion as Sonya Falsworth. David Harewood is known for his role in the Arrowverse as the Martian Manhunter. He recently lent his voice to the animated film Wendel and Wild.

Tom Hiddleston is known for playing the role of Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Loki Season 2 is expected to be released sometime in mid-2023. Recently he starred in a period drama titled The Essex Serpent with Claire Danes.

Apart from Tom Hiddleston, little is known whether or not any of the other actors are returning. Laurie may not return since it’s implied that his character has already died. Coleman and Harewood may be showing up in the future. In any case, we are excited to see what the future of Jonathan Pine will bring.
