It has been seven years since Tom Hiddleston starred as soldier-turned-hotel-manager-turned intelligence asset Jonathan Pine in John le Carré adaptation The Night Manager. He's finally headed back to that role in a new season of the show.
Yes, in the increasing trend of limited series getting new seasons, David Farr is back writing a new season, which will be a co-production of the BBC and Amazon this time (the first run was a collaboration between the Beeb and AMC in the States).
As for the story? Following British arms dealer Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie) being taken away by the Syrians at the end of Season 1, Hiddleston’s Pine is informed he is dead two years later, and he has to face up to a new, even more deadly challenge.
This may even lead to a Season 3, but for now the second will shoot later this year in London and South Africa.
