Netflix’s new political thriller “The Night Agent,” which premiered on March 23, has already been renewed for a second season.
Based on the novel of the same name by Matthew Quirk, the series stars New Zealand-Tongan actor Luciane Buchanan as cybersecurity expert Rose Larkin, Gabriel Basso as FBI agent Peter Sutherland and Oscar nominee Hong Chau as White House Chief of Staff Diane Farr.
“While monitoring an emergency line, a vigilant FBI agent [played by Basso] answers a call that plunges him into a deadly conspiracy involving a mole at the White House,” the show’s Netflix description states.
Since its premiere last week, “The Night Agent” has achieved a top 10 finish in 93 countries and raked in 168.7 million hours of viewership in less than a week.
Due to the show’s quick success, Netflix announced its 10-episode Season 2 renewal just one day after its premiere.
This marks one of the quickest renewals in Netflix history.
The last week has been a whirlwind as we’ve finally been able to share “The Night Agent” with the world. To see the tremendous reaction to the show has been a great joy and is a credit to our cast, our writers, our directors, our crew and our partners at Sony Pictures Television and Netflix. We couldn’t be any prouder or more excited to get cracking on Season 2 to share the further adventures of Night Action with our newfound fans.
