The Night Agent premiered on Netflix last week, and the series’ star is open to returning for a second season. Gabriel Basso spoke about the series and its possible future in an interview with Deadline.
Also starring Luciane Buchanan, Hong Chau, Sarah Desjardins, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Eve Harlow, Enrique Murciano Phoenix Raei, and DB Woodside, The Night Agent, is a political thriller created by Shawn Ryan. The story follows young FBI Agent Peter Sutherland (Basso), who guards a phone that is supposed to never ring – until one night, it does.
Basso said the following about a possible future for the Netflix series:
DEADLINE: Would you like to keep telling Peter’s stories?
BASSO: I would but I think the story in Season 1 is complete. All the loose ends are sort of tied up in a nice way. But I think that Peter has a lot more searching with what he knows now about his dad. I think yeah, it’d be interesting to see what happens to him because I almost think he would die. I almost think that you can’t have a sense of objective good in an environment where so many things are gray and lines are blurred and I think his taking a moral stance would be a detriment to him.
DEADLINE: He can’t die yet, he just got the girl!
BASSO: I don’t know if he gets her. I think getting implies that they both know their trajectory in life. And I think that kiss and those moments between them were all unique to the three days that the show was happening over. I think there’s a recognition between them as she’s watching the jet and he sort of looks back at her that this might be the last time they see each other. …
DEADLINE: So if there is a Season 2, you don’t think they’d reconnect?
BASSO: I think out of love for one another and out of respect for Rose, maybe he won’t reach back out to her. Maybe he’ll recognize that if he did that it put her life in jeopardy. Reinvolving her and the danger is sort of out of love for her you probably wouldn’t.
What do you think? Do you want to see a second season of The Night Agent series, or are you okay with a one-season story?
