One of Netflix’s biggest shows of 2023 was The Night Agent. Based on the novel by Matthew Quirk, The Night Agent stars Gabriel Basso as Peter Sutherland, an FBI agent who receives a mysterious call one night while working as a Night Action telephone operator. The call sends Peter down a dangerous road as he fights to uncover a conspiracy involving a mole at the White House. The Night Agent was created by Shawn Ryan, a TV veteran who also developed The Shield, Timeless, and S.W.A.T.

Due to the show’s popularity, Netflix renewed The Night Agent for a second season. Production on season 2 is underway, with filming expected to last several months. Here is everything we know about The Night Agent season 2, including the cast, plot, release date, and trailer.

What is the plot of The Night Agent season 2?

Plot details are under wraps for the second season. In a March 2023 interview with Deadline, Ryan revealed future seasons of The Night Agent would tell their “own, mostly self-enclosed” story with a beginning, middle, and end. Future seasons would include a few, not all, of the characters from previous seasons.

“That was the original plan; I think it’s still a pretty solid plan,” Ryan said about his pitch for future seasons. “To me, it was important. 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.”

The primary location of season 2 is New York City, with additional filming in Thailand and Washington D.C.

How many episodes will be in The Night Agent season 2?

The Nigh Agent season 2 will consist of 10 episodes. Season 1 also ha d 10 episodes. Netflix has recently experimented with multiple release dates for popular shows. For example, Bridgerton season 3, part 1 streams on May 16, while part 2 releases on June 13.

Because of The Night Agent’s popularity, Netflix could follow a similar approach with a staggered release.

When is the release date for The Night Agent season 2?

The Night Agent season 2 is coming to Netflix later this year. On Netflix’s first-quarter earnings call, co-CEO Ted Sarandos confirmed The Night Agent season 2 will premiere in the second half of 2024. Season 2 is currently in production.

When season 2 eventually airs, it will have been over a year since season 1 premiered in March 2023.

Is there a trailer for The Night Agent season 2?

Unfortunately, there is no trailer for The Night Agent season 2 at this time. Netflix typically releases trailers one to two months before a show’s release date. However, Netflix is expected to reveal a first look at The Night Agent season 2 at the streamer’s upfront presentation on May 15. Footage from The Night Agent season 2 will likely be included in a sizzle reel. If that happens, only a few seconds from The Night Agent season 2 will be featured in the reel.

Everything you need to know about Fantastic Beasts 4
Jude Law and the cast of Fantastic Beasts: The secrets of Dumbledore gather in a cave.

The Harry Potter franchise is in rough shape. The original series of eight movies, which followed Harry's story to its conclusion, were a wild success, and also happened to feature many of the most prominent British actors alive at the time. In modern Hollywood, though, no franchise is truly dead, which is why we got the Fantastic Beasts franchise in 2016.

Helmed by David Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter movies, and written by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, the Fantastic Beasts franchise seemed set up for success. A prequel series to the original films, they follow Newt Scamander, an offbeat British wizard, as he faces the rise of Grindelwald, the greatest dark wizard to ever live before Voldemort took that title.

Wednesday Addams with Thing on her shoulder from Wednesday.

It took just over 30 years for The Addams Family to recapture the public's imagination after the 1991 film and its 1993 sequel, Addams Family Values. Wednesday not only reinvigorated Charles Addams' signature creations, but it also became one of Netflix's most popular shows, surpassing even Stranger Things. That's why it was appropriate that The Addams Family's Christina Ricci had a part in Wednesday season 1 that allowed her to pass the torch to the current Wednesday, Jenna Ortega.

Wednesday season 2 is on the way to Netflix, and we're sharing everything we know about the upcoming season, including when it will return, what to expect, and more.
When will Wednesday season 2 be released?
2025 at the earliest. Netflix has confirmed the nearly three-year gap between seasons 1 and 2, which was pushed back because of the actors and writers strikes of 2023.
