‘The Night Manager’ Season 2 Air Date, Spoilers, News Update: Tom Hiddleston Reacts On New Sequel, Brad Pitt Almost Casted
The AMC's six-episode miniseries lead had become well-received by the audience. The show, lead by Tom Hiddleston, made a lot of fans waiting if there will be a coming "The Night Manager" Season 2.
Good news from the show's producer Simon Cornwell, he revealed that the "producers" would love to have "The Night Manager" Season 2. "I think in a lot of ways we would love to do another series, it would be very exciting," he said at the Royal Television Society event -- The Night Manager: Anatomy Hit.
Simon Cornwell is the son of John le Carré, the author of the 1993 novel "The Night Manager," which the TV series is based. Cornwell shared that there is no book and there has never been a Le Carré story which has been extended beyond the confines of the novel. Hence, it would be more interesting for fans to see "The Night Manager" Season 2 knowing that it won't be based on the book, Digital Spy noted.
However, Simon Cornwell cleared that they won't plan to do "The Night Manager" Season 2 if they know that it won't stand a chance. Of course, they, too, are planning to make it even better compared to its predecessor. Tom Hiddleston, on the other hand, shared his reaction to Entertainment Weekly that it will be John le Carré's decision if there would be another sequel to come.
According to Independent, the series was then shelved until a major star came along with interest in the role of Jonathan Pine; none other than Brad Pitt, who was set both to star in and produce the film. Until Pitt's version also fell through; with Cornwell explaining, "That suffered the same fate. It's actually a solid script, but it just didn't give you the depth of character."
Then Hiddleston was chosen as the lead character. Thanks to the show, Tom Hiddleston has been in the limelight lately for being a lady charmer and people have gawked over this gentleman like no other. No words or announcement regarding the release of "The Night Manager" Season 2 as of yet.
