The Night Manager was without a doubt one of the most successful and compelling dramas of 2016, raking in millions of viewers while broadcasting in the UK and picking up a huge fan base in the States and across the world.

Now it looks like the show could be returning for more high-stakes adventures, with a second series being worked on.

Director Susanne Bier confirmed the news, saying that the scripts for a second series are “slowly being developed”, adding: “We all very much want to do a season two, but the thing we absolutely do not want is to do something that does not live up to the level of season one. That would be a really bad idea.”

The show’s first series was based on John le Carre’s novel of the same name, but when it came to an end, all of the original source material had been used up. That means that any future additions to the show would be completely new and original.

Tom Hiddleston starred in the lead as Jonathan Pine, a former soldier and hotel night manager who turned to the life of an undercover spy with British intelligence, working to take down Richard Roper, played by Hugh Laurie.

The series picked up three Golden Globes earlier this year, with Hiddleston, Laurie and Olivia Colman the talents honoured with specific gongs. It also took home two Primetime Emmy Awards.

There’s no news yet on when the series may make its return, but we’ll keep you updated!
