The Night Manager was a big success for BBC / AMC and there are talks about a second season. And that's all there is… talks. A misleading report in the British trades this week put the project into questions, but the Ink Factory, who produces the series with BBC / AMC, had to come out and make an announcement that they have nothing to announce.
"The Ink Factory, BBC and AMC are in the early stages of developing a potential second series of The Night Manager, but nothing is definite yet and we have nothing to announce."
There seems to be a desire for more after the Tom Hiddleston / Hugh Laurie Emmy and Golden Globe winning spy drama, but John le Carré, the author of The Night Manager, is known for not letting his characters go "off-book".
Stephen Garrett, executive producer, told Deadline: "There's not even a script. There's just conversations and thoughts… It's not ruled out and it's not ruled in. It's entirely possible and we'd love to do it. The official position, which is also the truth — I know that's unusual but there you go — is that we're thinking about it; we're doing a kind of feasibility study. In an ideal world we'd love there to be another one. But if we do it, we just have to make sure it's at least as good as, if not better."
There is no direct sequel to the Night Manger, though a few of the minor character appear in other of le Carré novels.
