THE NIGHT AGENT = 3rd Highest Netflix Series Debut After WEDNESDAY & DAHMER

Update: Renewed for season 2. Political thriller The Night Agent, starring Gabriel Basso, exploded onto last week’s Netflix charts, with the third highest series debut on the global streamer, after Wednesday and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.

Netflix members worldwide watched 168.71 million hours of The Night Agent in its first four days of release. That ranks as the third best debut after Wednesday’s 341.23 million hours and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’s 196.2 million hours..

Inspired by Matthew Quirk’s novel, The Night Agent follows low-level FBI agent, Peter Sutherland (Gabriel Basso), who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings — until the night that it does, pulling him into a conspiracy that ultimately leads to the Oval Office.

Rose Larkin (Luciane Buchanan) is a young tech CEO who’s fallen on hard times and retreats to her aunt and uncle’s house to take stock of her life. When assassins come for her aunt and uncle, she quickly learns they weren’t who they seemed to be and finds herself with Peter, both of them running for their lives.

The Night Agent filmed for four months in metro Vancouver last year: from mid-February to mid-June.

Showrunner: Shawn Ryan.

Cast: Gabriel Basso, Luciane Buchanan, Hong Chau, DB Woodside, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Eve Harlow, Phoenix Raei, Enrique Murciano, Sarah Desjardins.
