What it's about: The Night Agent is based on the book of the same name by Matthew Quick. Shawn Ryan developed the series for Netflix. The Night Agent is easily one of the best Netflix shows of 2023, and it's coming back for season 2 soon! Okay, so what's it all about? The Night Agent tells the story of Peter Sutherland, (Basso), an FBI agent, who mans the Night Agent phone in the basement of the White House. The Night Agent program is a network of spies, but when a spy isn't on the other end of the line, Peter is pulled into a deeper mystery.

Why you should watch: The Night Agent has it all: spies, assassins, corrupt government officials, kidnapping, law enforcement investigations, and so much more. If you're into that, you're going to love The Night Agent. Most importantly, this is a twisty-turny mystery and thrill ride that you just have to keep watching. Once you start watching, you'll binge-watch all eight episodes, guaranteed. The Night Agent, as mentioned, is coming back for season 2 and figures to be one of the biggest new shows coming in 2024. Basso and co-star, Luciane Buchanan, who plays Rose in the series, have great chemistry, and that's another big part of this story.

Overall, The Night Agent is different from many of the other shows on the list. It's a much bigger series, in terms of what's at stake, but it still carries that human interest element we all love in shows like Fool Me Once. We start to really care about these characters and root for them every step of the way as they get to the bottom of the mystery.

The Night Agent season 2 is coming to Netflix in 2024!

That's the list of the Netflix shows to watch if you like Fool Me Once! We highly recommend all of these great shows if you're looking for something new to watch on Netflix.
