While that adventure may be over, the BBC are looking to capitalise on their successful spy drama, announcing they will be adapting another John Le Carré novel, this time based on The Spy Who Came In From The Cold.
The BBC have enlisted Slumdog Millionaire and The Full Monty writer Simon Beaufoy to adapt the series while The Ink Factory, who worked on The Night Manager, will produce.
Beauty said of the project: "It’s incredibly exciting to be working on the best Cold War spy story ever written." Co-CEO of The Ink Factory, Simon Cornwell, added: "The Spy Who Came In From The Cold is an utterly gripping story, and one of the great books of the twentieth century. We are looking forward enormously to bringing it to a twenty-first century audience."
The 1962 novel - which features one of Le Carré’s most famous characters, MI6 spymaster George Smiley - was previously made into a film starring Richard Burton.
Like with The Night Manager, US viewers will be able to tune into AMC to catch the series. A cast and release date have yet to be announced.
