The Night Agent premiered on Netflix on March 23, 2023, and there’s no doubt it’s one of the most popular Netflix shows of the year so far. The series is created by Shawn Ryan, and it’s based on the book of the same name by Matthew Quirk.

The series tells the story of Peter Sutherland, the son of a disgraced FBI agent, who saves lives during the bombing of a metro train in Washington D.C. Following the bombing, he’s assigned to a phone in the basement of the White House for spies to call when they’re in trouble. When he’s called by a civilian, Rose, whose aunt and uncle were just murdered, Peter and Rose try to get to the bottom of a mystery with national security implications.

The Night Agent gets a little bit ridiculous, and it’s not the tightest story. There are a few storylines that could be cleaned, but overall, it’s a fun new Netflix show to binge-watch soon!

The Night Agent is officially coming back for season 2 on Netflix!
