Based on the novel by John le Carré, the spy thriller centers on former British soldier Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston), who is recruited as an intelligence operative to investigate arms dealer Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie). The cast also includes Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander, Elizabeth Debicki, Douglas Hodge, and Antonio de la Torre.
Recently, director Susanne Bier confirmed a second season of the UK drama is “slowly being developed”:
We all very much want to do a season two, but the thing we absolutely do not want is to do something that does not live up to the level of season one. … I think it’s actually really healthy if it happens and there is a bit of time. Because you have to overcome the fear of, ‘How does it ever get as good again?’ – you have to let go of that and just go with the [new] material.
So we’d love to do it, but we don’t know when or how it will happen.”
