The six episodes that will make up the second season of the series will be directed by Georgi Banks-Davies (I Hate Suzie, Paper Girls) and will be produced by The Ink Factory (The Little Drummer Girl, The Pigeon Tunnel) together with Character 7, Demarest Films and 127 Wall.

Tom Hiddleston, in addition to being the protagonist, will also be an executive producer of the next two seasons of The Night Manager, together with his co-star from the first season Hugh Laurie. “The first series of The Night Manager was one of the most creatively fulfilling projects I've ever worked on. The depth, range, and complexity of Jonathan Pine was, and remains, a thrilling prospect. I look forward to reuniting with The Ink Factory's Simon and Stephen Cornwell, Executive Producer David Farr, and Stephen Garrett, and working with Georgi Banks-Davies to tell the next chapter of our story. I can't wait,” Hiddleston said in a brief statement.
