What’s going on with The Night Of? Recently, HBO boss Casey Bloys spoke to Variety about the future of the crime drama.
Season one of the TV series explored the intricate story of a murder case in New York City. The cast included Riz Ahmed, John Turturro, Michael Kenneth Williams, Bill Camp, and Jeannie Berlin.
In the interview, Bloys said he wants a second season of The Night Of:
Yes, absolutely. The only issue with doing another season is for them to come up with an idea that excites them. Steve [Zaillian] and Richard [Price] are talking and sharing ideas. I think it’ll be a longer process, probably. Both of them take their time and will only do something they’re really passionate and excited about. They’re not going to do another season just to do another season.”
He revealed that there are ongoing discussions for season two:
I don’t know. My guess is, it would be [one case in a season]. I think they’re talking about a lot of different variations, so at this point, all I know is that they’re talking about it. They haven’t come to us with anything. They’re just trying to get themselves excited about a take.”
And would Turturro star in season two:
That would be my hope. I think that’s what they’re thinking. But all of it is speculation at this point.”
What do you think? Did you watch season one of The Night Of? Do you want a second season?
