The Night Agent is Netflix's latest thriller series, a 10-part political drama with plenty of twists and turns as FBI agent Peter Sutherland finds conspirators inside the government, as well as rogue assassins and a murder witness named Rose, whom he must protect if he is to get any answers.

The Night Agent, which debuted on March 23 and is based on the same-named book by author Matthew Quirk, quickly rose to the top of Netflix’s most-watched list. Although being intended as a limited series, the streaming service is now pushing for more because of how well-liked the program is. This is what we currently know about a prospective second season of The Night Agent.

What Might Happen in Season Two of The Night Agent?

Considering that The Night Agent episodes were never supposed to start, Netflix has yet to reveal whether it has any intentions to renew the show for a second season. The limited series was also based on a single novel, therefore there won’t be any new content to adapt in the future.

Showrunner Shawn Ryan frankly stated in an interview with Deadline that the series hasn’t even been out for a week yet to fans screaming for more plot.

“Listen, until there is a Season Two picked up, the writers and I aren’t getting paid to figure that out until it becomes official in some way,” Ryan said. “I certainly have some ideas; I probably want to keep those to myself until the time comes. What I will tell you is that the initial pitch for this show that we sold to Netflix was that each season would tell its own, mostly self-enclosed, a beginning, middle and end story, and any future seasons would include a few but not most of the characters that we saw in the previous season.” Potentially, there’s no shortage of Night Agents.

When Will The Second Season of The Night Agent Debut on Netflix?

The Night Agent’s second season is not currently in the works, although that might change if Netflix subscribers enjoy the show.

The first season of The Night Agent was filmed from February through July of 2022 and debuted on Netflix on March 23, 2023, eight months later. Hence, assuming a prospective second season follows a similar shooting timeline, we may anticipate new episodes about a year after filming begins.

The Night Agent Season 2 Cast

Several characters die as a result of gunshots, explosives, and a handful of determined hitmen in The Night Agent (RIP, special agents Erik Monks and Ben Almora).

Yet, several of the important characters live until the end, so we could see them again if the creators don’t mess up the screenplay. Season two possible returners include:

• Gabriel Basso as FBI agent Peter Sutherland
• Luciane Buchanan as tech whiz Rose Larkin
• Hong Chau as (former) Chief of Staff Diane Farr
• Sarah Desjardins as VP’s daughter Maddie Redfield
• Fola Evans-Akingbola as Secret Service agent Chelsea Arrington
• Christopher Shyer as (former) Vice President Redfield

The Night Agent Season 2 Possible Plot

A second season of The Night Agent would continue to chronicle FBI agent Peter Sutherland’s exploits, either in the White House basement or in a more extended role. While the book on which the series is based is a standalone narrative, author Matthew Quirk has authored a number of additional novels with similar murky spy storylines that might serve as inspiration for future seasons.

Whether or whether the television production adopts Quirk’s suggestions, the series finishes in a way that leaves things open for Peter and Rose.

In the climactic episode, Peter and Rose say their final goodbyes as Peter gets ready to embark on his first covert operation as a Night Agent after saving the day (and the President) from VP Redfield and Diane Farr’s murder plans. He says he will phone her as soon as he can even though he is unsure of his destination or his task.

He may be followed on his quest in a second season, and he might work with Secret Service agent Chelsea Arrington, who aided him in the series’ attempt to stop the president from being assassinated.

The Night Agent Season 2 Trailer

We won’t see any fresh footage of The Night Agent unless it is revived for a second season. If a new season is in the works, we should see a caravan before the end of the year.
