The Night Agent Season 2 is coming to Netflix in 2024, but no specific release date has been announced.

This marks an incredible change for the series, given that its first season premiered on March 23.

In a statement, according to Netflix, Ryan said: “The last week has been a whirlwind as we finally got to share The Night Agent with the world.

“Seeing the tremendous reaction to the show has been a great joy and a credit to our cast, our writers, our directors, our crew and our partners at Sony Pictures Television and Netflix. We couldn’t be prouder or more excited to kick off Season 2 to share the additional adventures of Night Action with our new fans.”

The cast of season 2 of The Night Agent: Who would return?

There are a few cast members we could expect to return for The Night Agent season 2:

  • Gabriel Basso as Peter Sutherland
  • Luciane BuchananRose Larkin
  • Hong Chau as Diane Farr
  • Christopher Shyer as Vice President Redfield
  • Fola Evans-Akingbola as Chelsea Arrington
  • Sarah Desjardins as Maddie Redfield

In an interview with Variety, Ryan and Basso discussed what Peter’s codename would be in Season 2. “I trust Shawn implicitly, so I’m going to tell him this time,” Basso said.

“I am so in love with this show and am looking forward to doing future episodes. But it’s a little torturous to think too much about it before it happens, so I haven’t thought about it. But it’s a great point. We’ll have to find out if we get a Season 2. Rose’s aunt and uncle were Sidewinder and Gazelle, so we’ll have to figure out what the perfect avatar for Peter is.”

The plot of Night Agent Season 2: What will it be about?

No official plot details have been shared for The Night Agent Season 2, we’ve had some sneak peeks of what to expect.

Ryan said: “I don’t want to tell this specific story over five seasons, I want to tell this specific story in one season and give the audience some satisfaction that they see how things turn out. They learn what the truth is about Peter’s father, they learn what the conspiracy was. You can feel a feeling of fullness.

“If we are successful enough that Netflix wants more seasons, I think there would be a whole new world where you would see a limited number of characters from this current season going into that. But that’s something I would have to sit down with the writers and figure it all out.

The article continues after the announcement.

“I really love the questions that we need to answer: What does it mean that Peter would be a night agent? Where he goes? Now that Rose returns to California to try to restart her tech career, where does that leave Peter and Rose? I think these are all questions that we would surely love to answer in a potential Season 2, and I certainly hope that we get the opportunity to do so.”

That’s everything we know about The Night Agent season 2. In the meantime, check out the cast of the show here and our other TV and movie hubs below:
