The Night Manager Returns To Screen After A Seven-Year Break
Tom Hiddleston’s The Night Manager returns and is set to air after a seven-year hiatus. According to reports by Deadline, Amazon Prime Video and the BBC are collaborating on the production of the second season, which is set to be filmed later this year in London and South America under the codename Steelworks. David Farr, the show’s original writer, will be penning the script for the new season. Although the show’s producers have yet to approve the second season, it has been rumored that the show will receive a two-season order.
Based on John le Carré’s novel of the same name, the first season followed the story of Jonathan Pine (played by Tom Hiddleston), the night manager of a hotel who finds himself drawn into the criminal underworld when he becomes embroiled in the world of Richard Roper (played by Hugh Laurie), an arms dealer. Recruited by intelligence operative Angela Burr (played by Olivia Colman), Pine infiltrates Roper’s crime family in an attempt to bring him down. As a standalone novel, the show’s first season fully adapted the story from the book, leaving fans curious about what the second season will hold.
The new reports suggest that Season 2 will take place in the present day and that Pine will be faced with a new set of deadly challenges. Despite rumors of a second season of The Night Manager, fans of Tom Hiddleston have had plenty of opportunities to see him on the screen in recent years. One of his most famous roles has been as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In 2021, Hiddleston reprised his role as the God of Mischief in the Disney+ series Loki. The plot of the second season is still under wraps, but fans can expect the series to return in the summer of 2023.
At the end of the first season of Loki, the character found himself in a version of the TVA where his friend Mobius (played by Owen Wilson) no longer remembers him. Loki was pushed through a time door by Sylvie (played by Sophia Di Martino) so she could kill He Who Remains (played by Jonathan Majors). Clips from the upcoming season show Loki with two identical variants of himself, dressed in 80s-style suits with glimpses of Ke Huy Quan’s mystery role. The Night Manager was first released in 2016, and fans have eagerly awaited news of a second season. The show, which starred Hiddleston, Laurie, and Colman, quickly became a global sensation, earning critical acclaim and a Golden Globe for Laurie’s performance.
With Hiddleston back on board, fans of the show can expect more gripping action, suspense, and drama in the second season. In conclusion, fans of the show can finally rejoice, knowing that the highly anticipated second season is on the way, with Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Jonathan Pine. While details of the plot are scarce, fans can expect more thrilling action and suspense from the acclaimed show. Meanwhile, fans of Hiddleston can also look forward to his return as Loki in the upcoming season of the Disney+ series, set to release in the summer of 2023.
