Netflix announced today that The Night Agent has been renewed for Season 2. The news comes less than a week after the action thriller released its 10-episode freshman run. The quick pickup is not a surprise, as the show had a record-breaking opening weekend for the streaming service.

"We're proud to see The Night Agent deliver a breakout performance and become instantly embraced around the world," said Jinny Howe, Netflix's VP of Drama Series. "Shawn Ryan has created a spy thriller sensation that viewers cannot get enough of, with a stellar cast featuring Gabriel Basso, Luciane Buchanan and Hong Chau, and we're here to bring them more of the action and suspense they love."

Based on the novel by Matthew Quirk, the series follows low level FBI Agent Peter Sutherland, who mans an emergency hotline for American spies in the basement of the White House. The phone never rings, but when a call comes in from a terrified civilian, Peter must find a way to protect her while working to uncover a dangerous conspiracy that could lead all the way to the Oval Office.

Look for Season 2 of The Night Agent in 2024.
