The Night Manager season 2 release date speculation and more news

With news of a new season for the spy thriller series finally here, here's everything we know about The Night Manager season 2 release date.

The Night Manger season 2 release date: Tom Hiddleston as Jonathan in The Night Manager

When is The Night Manager season 2 release date? It’s been a while since we last got to see Tom Hiddleston step into the shoes of Jonathan Pine since The Night Manager season 1 was last on our screens a lengthy seven years ago.

But now, there seems to be some lucky news for all you patient fans of The Night Manager. A new season of the hit TV series has been confirmed, meaning that it’s just a matter of time until Tom Hiddleston steps out of the MCU once again to give us more white-knuckle thrills. So, from its release date, cast, plot, and more, here is everything you need to know ahead of the upcoming chapter.

The Night Manager season 2 release date speculation

Currently, there is no release date for The Night Manager season 2, but we think it’ll likely return sometime in 2025. 

Back in February 2023, Deadline confirmed that the new season was in the works, but updates have been sparse since then. Filming was also meant to kick off in 2023, but the BBC hasn’t shared any production announcement, so we are pretty sure cameras won’t roll until 2024.

The good news is that we’ll likely hear some news soon on The Night Manager season 2. During an interview on the Happy Sad Podcast, Tom Hiddleston assured fans that the show hadn’t been abandoned and that there are “definitely plans.” So, with conversations actively happening and stars on board, it’s only a matter of time before things start moving.

If filming starts in 2024, a 2025 release date is extremely realistic. But this is just a speculative guess on our part until more news heads our way. Stay tuned for updates!

Who is in The Night Manager season 2 cast?

While there is no official cast list yet, Tom Hiddleston is likely set to reprise his role as Jonathan Pine as part of The Night Manager season 2 cast.

The first season was stacked high with star power, including the likes of Olivia Colman, Elizabeth Debicki, Hugh Laurie, and Tom Hollander. Considering that the first season heavily implied the death of Hugh Laurie’s Roper, it’s not certain whether the actor would reprise his role in the second season.

But this is a twisty spy story just as much as any other, so it’s worth not ruling anything out. Laurie himself seems to think that there’s a possibility since he dropped a mysterious hint to Deadline way back in 2017 as to the fate of his character, saying: “You don’t see me die…”

However, Tom Hollander almost definitely won’t be back as Lance ‘Corky’ Corkoran, since he actually did meet his end in the previous season. Sorry, Corky.

Here’s the expected The Night Manager season 2 cast list:

  • Tom Hiddleston as Jonathan Pine
  • Elizabeth Debicki as Jed Marshall
  • Olivia Coleman as Angela Burr
  • Alistair Petrie as Sandy Langbourne
  • Michael Nardone as Frisky
  • Hovik Keuchkerian as Tabby
  • Adeel Akhtar as Rob Singhal
  • Tobias Menzies as Geoffrey Dromgoole

What will happen in The Night Manager season 2 plot?

There’s no official The Night Manager season 2 plot confirmed just yet, though we can likely assume that Jonathan Pine will have to face another dangerous challenge.

According to reports, the newest season will see Pine learn of Roper’s demise (that is, of course, if it’s actually true), meaning he is set to encounter new trials and foes. The next series would also meet Pine in the present day after the first season took place in 2015.

The season 1 finale left us with a lot of character arcs coming to a close, including Roper being taken away by humiliated and dangerous buyers and Jed reuniting with her son. Whether season 2 will pick up with all the other supporting characters or see Pine starting, a new journey completely afresh with a new group of accomplices and enemies remains to be seen. But we’ll be sure to keep you updated as and when we know more.

How many episodes will The Night Manager season 2 have?

Currently, the number of episodes for The Night Manager season 2 hasn’t been confirmed yet, but we estimate there will be six.

Why, you ask? Well because season 1 had six episodes, and why mess with a formula that clearly works? Six episodes is not too long and not too short, and during an age with multiple choices and constant titles being added new on Netflix every month, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by your TV.

So, six episodes are pretty much perfect, in our opinion. But keep your eyes on this guide as we wait for a full episode confirmation.
