Feb. 5 (UPI) -- The Night Agent is back in production.

Netflix announced Monday that filming has started on Season 2 of the action thriller series.

The streaming service shared the news alongside a photo of series star Gabriel Basso holding a director's clipboard on set.

The Night Agent is based on the Matthew Quirk novel of the same name.

Season 1 follows Peter Sutherland (Basso), "a low-level FBI agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings -- until the night that it does, propelling him into a fast moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads all the way to the Oval Office."

The Season 1 cast also includes Luciane Buchanan, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Sarah Desjardins, Eve Harlow, Phoenix Raei, Enrique Murciano, D.B. Woodside and Hong Chau.

The Night Agent premiered on Netflix in March 2023, debuting at the No. 1 spot on the English-language TV list with 168.71 million hours viewed.

The series was renewed for Season 2 in March 2023 following its premiere.

The Night Agent is created and executive produced by The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, who also serves as showrunner.
