The Night Agent season 2
When The Night Agent premiered on Netflix in March 2023, no one could have predicted that the action-thriller series would make such an immediate impact on the streamer. Six days after premiering to over 168 million viewing hours in its first four days on Netflix, the series was renewed for a second season. That’s a new record for a Netflix series!
The hit series centers on Peter Sutherland (Gabriel Basso), a low-level FBI agent working the White House’s Night Action room. When he answers a phone call from Rose Larkin (Luciane Buchanan), the trajectory of both of their lives changes as they’re suddenly mixed into a political conspiracy with wide-ranging impacts on their personal lives and national security.
Along with the renewal for season 2, Netflix revealed that the second season would contain 10 episodes and be released sometime in 2024. But that was before the strikes. Some viewers might think that’s a long wait for season 2, but the creative team still has to craft the story for the new episodes and, of course, the season still has to be filmed.
The Night Agent’s first season was filmed between February and June 2022 and was ultimately released in March 2023. Now that the show has become an established hit, Netflix looks to be prioritizing getting the next season out ASAP, further evidenced by production beginning in January 2024. We're already learning so much about the season, including that it will partly take place in Thailand and that there are a number of new characters. Fingers crossed for a potential release in late summer or fall 2024!
