The Night Manager will premiere on AMC this week, and fans of the BBC hit are still wondering if a second season is possible. Tom Hiddleston said there is not a second season being planned, and now the writer of the series is making it clear that a second season is not happening either.
David Farr spoke about The Night Manager in an interview with Variety, and he made it clear that he is “done” with the project. He said the following:
“There is lots of pressure but I’m not keen. Personally, I liked the fact that the story ended where the story ended. But that’s entirely personal. Given the characters, there is a potential for something more to happen, and I’m sure someone could find the right idea. But for me it’s done. My simple feeling is that I wouldn’t be able to make the next one as good. But I would love to work with Le Carré again and we are talking about future projects.”
For The Night Manager, Farr worked closely with the author of the novel, John Le Carré, to update the story to present day.
