‘The Night Manager’ Season 2 involves a major cast shake-up.
Though the first season covered pretty much all of le Carre’s novel, the success of ‘The Night Manager’ left viewers wanting more. Not only are the fans excited about a new season, but the enthusiasm for season 2 is also flowing among the show’s cast and crew. Shortly after the announcement regarding the development of The Night Manager season, 2 was made, the speculations around the return of the original cast members for the sequel began to surface. And looks like there’s a lot of wiggle room.
‘The Night Manager’ Season 1 featured a team of the best actors including Tom Hiddleston (Jonathan Pine), Olivia Colman (Angela Burr), Hugh Laurie (Richard Roper), Elizabeth Debicki (Jed), and Tom Hollander (Corky). But which of these mega-stars will be returning to season 2? We are sure about one but you’ll have to keep reading to find out who’s that.
Did Tom Hiddleston tease his return as the Night Manager?
Tom Hiddleston seemed to confirm his return to ‘The Night Manager Season 2’, telling Zoe Ball on the Radio 2 Breakfast Show.
“At the moment the show is in the lap of John le Carré and his sons who run The Ink Factory, the production company which produces it. They are potentially conceiving how these characters might live on: what they’re doing now given the state of the world. Which is curious given that the world is in an ‘interesting’ place’, shall we say. What’s Jonathan Pine doing? Where is he? He’s probably in a dark corner somewhere spying on someone. What shape or form might that take? I’m very curious to see what materializes, and that’s about as much as I can say”,
said Hiddleston. BBC Radio 2 shared a short clip of their talk on Twitter.
However, the crew must take into consideration the fans’ opinion and what they want because, after all, it is for the people that they are making a new season. And people would want to see Tom as the hot night manager. Let’s keep our fingers crossed to watch him on the screen as the night manager in season 2 super soon.
Who else is to be cast with Tom Hiddleston?
If and when the new season of ‘The Night Manager’ happens, you might expect to see Hugh Laurie (Richard Roper), Angela Burr (Olivia Colman), and Elizabeth Debicki (Jed Marshall) besides Tom Hiddleston (Jonathan Pine). Since these stars have busy schedules, it will be a challenge for the BBC to get everyone in the same place at the same time.
Despite the success of season 1, the sequel didn’t materialize as quickly as many people hoped. In fact, at times, it seemed it might not happen at all. Thankfully, that’s not the case. Fans have been gagging for ‘The Night Manager’ Season 2, especially to watch the return of Tom Hiddleston as the night manager. How are you holding up your excitement? Let us know in the comments.
