When The Night Agent first started streaming it took Netflix by storm. Now, after watching the show on Netflix, fans are truly hoping for more. Meanwhile, despite the fact that the streamer normally takes a few weeks to decide to renew a hit show, this one turned out to be a no-brainer and has already been renewed for a second season.

The news hit the headlines on Wednesday, making it among the fastest renewals, just six days after dropping on Netflix. Meanwhile, The Night Agent is already the third biggest debut in the streamer’s history, only lagging behind last year’s Wednesday and Dahmer.

So far, no release date has been announced for the second season of The Night Agent. However, Netflix series normally release on a year or year-and-a-half basis. As noted by TV Line, if this is the case, fans can expect season 2 in the spring or summer of 2024.

One strange thing about the show getting a second season is that it is based on a book by Matthew Quirk. Season 1 covered that storyline, and there is no second book. It seems to continue the series, it would have to be written from scratch. It is also unclear whether Quirk would be collaborating with The Night Agent’s showrunners.

What we do know comes from creator Shawn Ryan, who said that the last week “has been a whirlwind” after they were finally able to share The Night Agent with the world. He added:

To see the tremendous reaction to the show has been a great joy and is a credit to our cast, our writers, our directors, our crew and our partners at Sony Pictures Television and Netflix. We couldn’t be any prouder or more excited to get cracking on Season 2 to share the further adventures of Night Action with our newfound fans.

Meanwhile, Jinny Howe, Netflix’s VP of Drama Series said of the renewal

We’re proud to see The Night Agent deliver a breakout performance and become instantly embraced around the world. 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.
