The Night Agent Season 2 Release Date
The release window for the second season has been acknowledged by Netflix. Yes! Much to everyone’s surprise, the beloved action thriller series is all set to return with a brand new season sometime in 2024! Hence, there is no chance that the series will premiere this year!

The Night Agent Season 2 Production Status
The first season was filmed throughout British Columbia, Canada, with the city of Vancouver standing in for Washington, D.C., so there is a chance that the same locations will be used for the new season. Moreover, the production is reported to not have commenced yet due to the current writer’s strike, which has caused a major delay in its release as the production has also been delayed.
Hence, we speculate that the filming will take place after the strike concludes, maybe later this year, as the pre-production stage also takes time to complete before the shoot effectively begins in the coming months. So, the next season will also follow in the footsteps of other shows and might go on a short hiatus.
The Night Agent Season 2 Cast
The cast members who are expected to return in the second season are as follows Gabriel Basso as Peter Sutherland, Luciane Buchanan as Rose Larkin, Fola Evans-Akingbola as Chelsea Arrington, Sarah Desjardins as Maddie Redfield, Eve Harlow as Ellen, Phoenix Raei as Dale, Enrique Murciano as Ben Almora, D. B. Woodside as Erik Monks, and Hong Chau as Diane Farr.
The recurring cast members include Andre Anthony as Colin Worley, Christopher Shyer as Vice President Ashley Redfield, Toby Levins as Nathan Briggs, Ben Cotton as Gordon Wick, and Kari Matchett as President Michelle Travers.
The Night Agent Season 2 Episode Count
The next season is confirmed to have a total of 10 episodes with an average runtime of 45 to 56 minutes, just like the prior season, in order to remain consistent. On the other hand, the episode titles and synopsis of the series are not released yet. The network will publish those details when the episodes are due to air on the streaming service. So, we would advise fans to be patient and binge-watch the recently released first season to recall the events.
Where to watch The Night Agent Season 2?
When The Night Agent Season 2 draws close to its release date along with the first season, it will be available exclusively on Netflix, with other series of the same genre also accessible on the streaming platform with a range of membership options depending on the package you choose. The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month at no additional cost with any of their services.
The Night Agent Season 2 Plot: What to expect in the new season?
It’s way too early to guess about the plotlines, but if we have to speculate, the second season is definitely going to pick up from the final episode, “Fathers.” In the episode, the viewers got to see that, “With lives at stake, the group tries to stop a nefarious plot before it’s too late. In the aftermath, Peter confronts the past and begins a new chapter.” That’s not it! The show creator and showrunner Shawn Ryan also told Netflix Tudum about what ideas are already cooking for his hero, Peter Sutherland.
After all, as Ryan tells Tudum, Peter ends Season 1 asking himself big questions like:
“What have I got myself into?” and “What does Peter’s new job mean for the couple?” “That’s one of the big questions we’d love to answer in Season 2,” says Ryan. Further adding, “What does Peter getting on this plane and going somewhere (presumably overseas to enter into some new wild adventure) mean, with Rose going back to California to try to pursue her Silicon Valley dreams again? We certainly have some initial ideas.”
Additionally, Buchanan also has some predictions for what her character’s destiny might entail. As the New Zealand-born actor agrees, Rose would love to pursue her tech goals again. “I really hope that she continues on her journey,” says Buchanan. Also added, “[The ending] leaves it really open-ended… I also want closure for her, I’m like, ‘This girl needs a lot of therapy after everything she’s been through.'”
The report mentioned the disgraced presidential chief of staff Diane Farr survives a gunshot wound in the finale, and nefarious mogul Gordon Wick slithers away from consequences. “We liked the idea that this wasn’t so clean,” Ryan says of Wick’s escape.
“That there is one person who, because of his resources and everything, is able to slink away. Maybe we’ll deal with him again in some way.” Peter certainly still has his eyes on Farr. “Due to his belief in due process, he’s not going to be bummed she’s alive,” Basso concedes. Further adding, “But if Farr eludes justice, he’ll be a little more wary of Travers. To be a traitor and not receive justice is not okay with Peter.” With Peter directly serving at the pleasure of the President as a night agent, the stakes will be higher than ever in Season 2.
Lastly, Shawn Ryan serves as showrunner and executive producer via his MiddKid Productions. For the crew, Sony Pictures Television is the studio. Moreover, Seth Gordon, who directed the opening episode, executive produces through his Exhibit A banner. Executive producer includes MiddKid Productions Marney Hochman, Exhibit A’s Julia Gunn, as well as Jamie Vanderbilt, William Sherak, Paul Neinstein, and Nicole Tossou from Project X and David Beaubaire for Sunset Lane Media.
The Night Agent Season 2: Is there any official trailer?
Unfortunately, the network has not yet released any new teasers for the new season of The Night Agent as the filming has currently stopped due to the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike, along with the possibility of an actor’s strike, due to which the status is neither here nor there as it hasn’t come to a resolution yet. Recently, Shawn Ryan also shared a post on Twitter mentioning that the writing of The Night Agent Season 2 hasn’t begun and that all writers need a fair deal before we can resume our work.
In the meantime, we suggest you check out the first season, which is created by Shawn Ryan based on the novel by Matthew Quirk states: “Based on the novel by Matthew Quirk, the series is a sophisticated, character-based, action-thriller centering on a low-level FBI agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings—until the night that it does, propelling him into a fast-moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office.”
The series has accrued 605.62 million total hours, emerging as the streamer’s sixth-most viewed series. The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 75% approval rating with an average rating of 6.5/10, based on 28 critic reviews. The website’s critics’ consensus reads, “Bingeable as a beach read and just as forgettable, The Night Agent is a routine spy thriller told with commendable bravado.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 68 out of 100 based on 13 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews.”
