Shawn Ryan’s The Night Agent, adapted from Matthew Quirk‘s novel of the same name, centers on Gabriel Basso‘s Peter Sutherland and Luciane Buchanan‘s Rose Larkin, who become embroiled in a government plot after Rose’s aunt and uncle are murdered. Peter and Rose have learned, over the course of the season, that Vice President Redfield (Christopher Shyer) and President’s Chief of Staff Diane Farr (Hong Chau) were engaged in the metro bombing that nearly took Peter’s life at the opening of the pilot episode. In addition to developing sexual feelings for one another, Rose and Peter have also divulged their sufferings to one another, including Peter’s father being accused of treason and the collapse of Rose’s firm, further complicating their efforts to uncover the truth and clear their names. Maddie (Sarah Desjardins), the daughter of the Vice President, is in danger, but the Secret Service agent Chelsea Arrington (Fola Evans-Akingbola) has thrown them a life preserver. If you’ve already watched the first 10 episodes of The Night Agent, you’re probably itching for more. Is Netflix greenlighting Season 2 of The Night Agent? In this article, tvacute.com will discuss the renewal of The Night Agent, the show’s future, and the possible plot points of Season 2. Will Rose and Peter’s relationship progress further?
Will there be The Night Agent Season 2 Renewed on Netflix?
The Night Agent has not been renewed or canceled by Netflix as of March 24, a day after the first 10 episodes premiered. But that doesn’t mean Season 2 is definitely out of the question. The conclusion of Season 1 also neatly set up another tale, leaving plenty of possibility for development in the event that the show is renewed.
If the series is picked up for a second season, the writer-producer Shawn Ryan gave some hints to Deadline as to where it might go from here and whether any other characters except Peter would return.
Ryan told to Deadline, until there is a Season 2 picked up, the writers and I aren’t getting paid to figure that out until it becomes official in some way. 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.
That was the original plan; I think it’s still a pretty solid plan. To me it was important. I don’t want to tell this specific story over five seasons, I want to tell this specific story in one season and give some satisfaction to the audience 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 sense of completion. If we are successful enough that Netflix wants more seasons, I think there’d be a whole new world in which you would see a limited number of characters from this current season going into that. But that’s something that I’d have to sit down with the writers and have it all figured out.
I really love the questions that we need answering on: What does it mean that Peter would be a night agent? Where is he going? Now that Rose is going back to California to try to restart her tech career, where does that leave Peter and Rose? I think these are all questions that we almost certainly would love to answer in a potential Season 2, and I certainly hope we get the opportunity to do that.
What will happen in The Night Agent” Season 2?
In Season 2 of The Night Agent, we’ll see Sutherland go from being a student on the night action phone to a master on the job. After saying farewell to Larkin with a kiss, Sutherland boarded a U.S. Air Force plane to begin his first mission. His top-secret Night Action Mission Brief was waiting for him when he boarded, so he opened his tablet and got to reading. Season 2 will reveal Sutherland’s destination and the nature of his work as a night agent, both of which have been left mysterious in Season 1.
If Larkin and Sutherland make it out of this alive, we’d like to tag along because she recently got bangs and has mentioned she’d like to start a business in California. Hopefully, we’ll be able to observe Agent Arrington in her new duty on the president’s security detail, and we’ll also do another check-in with the White House and the president. Vice President’s daughter Maddie, who left the Secret Service to pursue a more ordinary life and an ambition of studying overseas, may be worth keeping tabs on. Gordon Wick could make an appearance, and Diane Farr and the VP could be held accountable for their conduct.
