The Night Manager confirmed for series two

Emmy Griffiths

Get ready everyone! It has been confirmed that The Night Manager will be returning for season two, but it sounds like fans may have to wait a while! The director, Susanne Bier, has admitted that the follow-up is "slowly being developed" by a team of writers. She told Broadcast: "We all want very much 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. That would be a really bad idea."

The show will return for a second series

Tom Hiddleston, who played the lead character Jonathan Pine in the first series, has previously opened up about the prospect of doing a second series. Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, he said: "Truthfully, I think it is still in the lap of [author] Le Carré himself. I think we're all aware that there is an appetite for more, but it really lies with the author, as it should, and if he can see a way for them to continue in a framework that fits his original conception. That's all I know for now." The star clearly loved playing the role, as he continued: "Jonathan Pine was such a fascinating prospect, a highly-skilled individual with a romantic spirit and a referential and broken heart. That combination was so fascinating."

Tom recently shut down questions about his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift. After being quizzed about her in an interview with The Telegraph, he said: "I'm just thinking about this. Everyone is entitled to a private life. I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment and in my mind I don’t conflict the two. My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate."
