The Night Agent television series premiered on Netflix in March 2023 and turned into an instant #1 hit around the world! You can watch all ten episodes here.
The show stars Gabriel Basso as Peter Sutherland, Luciane Buchanan as Rose Larkin, and Oscar nominee Hong Chau as Diane Farr.
If you’ve only seen the series, the book will be full of surprises, with a completely different ending and new characters and twists. A special tie-in edition is now available.
The series broke records around the world with more than half a billion hours viewed and counting! It was Netflix’s third-highest TV premiere since they started sharing viewership numbers, spent three weeks as the global #1, and is on track to be Netflix’s fifth-most-viewed show of all time. All of that earned it an instant season two renewal. Thanks for watching! The story continues in 2024.
The Guardian called it “propulsive, slicker-than-slick fun, with every hairpin turn perfectly negotiated” and Variety said the series “sparks with curiosity and intrigue, a richly detailed show that propels viewers forward with a relentless pace.”
The writers, cast, and crew did a fantastic job on it. The showrunner–Shawn Ryan, who made The Shield and SWAT and a bunch of other great shows–combined the plot of the book with a story he’d been working on about the Secret Service and high political intrigue. Pretty fascinating for me to see how it all came together. It’s such a thrill to see scenes I imagined seven years ago come to life, and it was even wilder to go to the set and see all of that in person and to hang out with Peter and Rose!

Gabriel Basso and stunt actor Matt Mylrea (Gabriel is an incredible fighter, and did almost all of his own stunt work–everything they would let him!)

Some shots from the LA premiere: my wife Heather and I. (This was our first night out since we had a baby a year ago!)
The great cast and producers who made this all happen.
Eve Harlow, who is as kind as her character is evil!
Chatting with Fola Evans-Akingbola. Shawn Ryan’s Secret Service storyline and her and DB Woodside’s characters were one of my favorite parts of the show.
And this was a thrill: praise for the show from Stephen King! I read everything he wrote when I was growing up and he inspired me to become a novelist.
