BC-Filmed THE NIGHT AGENT Ends Up #5 on Netflix’s Most Popular TV List
The Night Agent ends up #5 on Netflix’s Most Popular TV (English) list at the close of its first 28 days on the global streamer.
Released on March 23rd, the filmed-in-Vancouver White House thriller stars Gabriel Basso as the Night Agent Peter Sutherland and Luciane Buchanann as Rose Larkin.
Netflix quickly renewed The Night Agent, but season 2 of the series will be a new story, set in a different part of the world than Washington, D.C. and exploring different characters except for the Night Agent himself. Will Rose come back in season 2? That’s not determined yet.
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.
