The Night Agent Season 2: New Cast Members, Possible Release Date, and More

Netflix's hit thriller adds several new cast members for the second season of the conspiracy thriller

Tim Surette

The Night Agent came out of nowhere to become one of Netflix's most-watched shows of all time when it premiered early last year. Unsurprisingly, fans are champing at the bit for any info about Season 2 of this conspiracy thriller series, adapted from Matthew Quirk's novel of the same name, which follows an FBI agent (Gabriel Basso) who finds himself unraveling a vast conspiracy inside the US government after he answers a mysterious phone in the basement of the White House.

There's not much to know about Season 2 yet, but that doesn't mean we can't start asking questions about a release date, what the new season will be about, and more. But we do know a little bit, like the names of some new cast members.

The Night Agent Season 2 latest news

Season 2 of The Night Agent added Amanda Warren to the cast last month, and now a whole host of new actors is joining the Netflix series. Per Deadline, new regular cast members include Arienne Mandi as an Iranian aide, Berto Colon as a Marine-turned-fixer for a powerful businessman, and Louis Herthum as that businessman. Brittany Snow and Teddy Sears are new recurring cast members who will pop up as other FBI agents related to Night Action.

The Night Agent Season 2 renewal

Mission accomplished! On March 29, less than a week after it premiered on Netflix, The Night Agent was renewed for Season 2. And it wasn't a tough decision. Since Netflix began releasing Top 10 data, the series is one of the streamer's most popular English-language shows, clocking the third-best opening week for a new Netflix series, behind only Wednesday and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The Night Agent Season 2 estimated release date

There's no information yet on when exactly Season 2 will be released. In early April 2023, showrunner Shawn Ryan told TV Line that he was only in the idea phase of Season 2. In December, Deadline reported that Season 2 would be out sometime in 2024 and consist of 10 episodes.

What will The Night Agent Season 2 be about?

Season 1 followed Matthew Quirk's book of the same name, but Quirk never wrote a second book detailing the further adventures of Peter Sutherland. That means Season 2 of The Night Agent will almost certainly be entirely original. (Quirk is a producer on the show, so he could use ideas he had for a second book, if he had any.)

"[Matthew Quirk has] written plenty of books, but nothing with these characters in this world," Ryan told TV Line in early April. "So it's something that with the pickup we're now working on."

"I would say that [Sutherland's first mission as a Night Agent] will be the starting-off point, to sort of see what he was being sent off to do," Ryan said, referring to where we last saw Sutherland in the Season 1 finale. "But we have some surprises. I don't want to say too much, because until you're actually filming it, the stories can always change."

Ryan also spoke to Comicbook.com in mid-April about Season 2, revealing that it won't be set in Washington, D.C., where Season 1 was set, and that Sutherland will be on a new adventure with mostly new characters. 

"[Season 2] does not take place in the D.C. area, which is where Season 1 took place," Ryan said. "So 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. And with the high bar that Season 1 set for audience expectations, we feel that pressure too. And so we're just going to do our best to tell a story that feels within The Night Agent universe, but that feels new, fresh, and exciting."
