Here’s everything we know about Season 2 of The Night Agent on Netflix, including any release date and trailer updates, cast, plot, and more.

The Night Agent, the new political thriller show from The Shield producer Shawn Ryan, landed on Netflix in late March. It premiered to rave reviews and instant viewership, jumping straight to number one in the top 10 chart – it did so well, in fact, that it earned a quick renewal.

The series follows Peter (Gabriel Basso), an FBI agent working the night action desk who becomes entangled in a dangerous conspiracy after a single phone call.

Has The Night Agent Season 2 release date been announced?

The Night Agent Season 2 will hit Netflix in 2024, but a specific release date hasn’t been announced.

“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.”

Jimmy Howe, Vice President of Drama Series at Netflix, also said: “We’re proud to see The Night Agent deliver a breakout performance and become instantly embraced around the world.

The Night Agent Season 2 cast: Who would return?

There’s a few cast members we could expect to return for The Night Agent Season 2:

  • Gabriel Basso as Peter Sutherland
  • Luciane Buchanan Rose 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 will defer to him on this one,” Basso said.

“I am so in love with this show, and I so want to make future episodes. But it is a little torturous to think too much about that before it happens, so I haven’t thought about it. But it’s a great point. We are going to have to figure it out if we do 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 Night Agent Season 2 plot: What would it be about?

No official plot details have been shared for The Night Agent Season 2, but we’ve had a few teases 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 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 answered 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.”

In a more recent interview with Comicbook, Ryan revealed that Season 2 “does not take place in the DC area.” He added: “We’ll be in a different part of the world exploring different characters than we had in Season 1. And we’re determining who from Season 1 might appear in Season 2. But essentially we’re going to be telling a whole brand-new story, which is exciting and scary.”

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