The Night Agent, Netflix's latest entre into the thriller genre, will be back. Based on the popular novel by Matthew Quirk, the show premiered in March to massive viewership. It was so wildly popular, the notoriously cancel-happy streamer gave it a nearly instant renewal for a second season.
The show hails from Sony Television and creator Shawn Ryan, who's no stranger to having shows cut down in their prime. While The Shield was a major success that won Emmys and ran for seven seasons, cop drama The Chicago Code and naval thriller Last Resort only lasted a season. But this is easily his most watched show by a wide margin, topping Netflix's top 10 English-language shows. A press release claims it boasted the third-best viewership for the premiere week of a debut show.
Netflix has yet to announce a premiere date for Season 2, but like Season 1 it will contain 10 episodes. Star Gabriel Basso will return to uncover more massive conspiracies.
