The Night Manager seasons 2: Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman reportedly 'back'

Director Susanne Bier recently confirmed the show will continue 

Fans of Tom Hiddleston’s extended James Bond audition - AKA The Night Manager - have been pining for a sequel ever since the BBC show finished airing last year.

Earlier this month, director Susanne Bier confirmed a second series is "slowly being developed,” saying: "We all very much want 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.”

New reports claim Hiddleston - along with co-stars Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman - have signed up for another series, an insider telling The Daily Express they producers are “just working on the story, and then it’s down to availability.”

“It’s like a Venn diagram to bring these three actors together to film another series,” they said, coming as no surprise seeing as Hiddleston’s time is no doubt occupied with Avengers and King Kong franchises.

The insider continued: “We’re working on a new story. We always knew something would happen after Richard Roper stepped into that van.”

How valid the report is remains to be seen, but an official announcement is no doubt coming considering Bier is talking about the second series.
