‘The Night Manager’ Season 2 Brings Back Olivia Colman, Noah Jupe and More Cast Members (EXCLUSIVE)

Olivia Colman is back for Season 2 of “The Night Manager,” reprising her Emmy-nominated role as intelligence officer Angela Burr, Variety has learned. Also returning for the new edition: Alistair Petrie (“Sex Education,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”) as Alexander “Sandy” Langbourne; Douglas Hodge (“Joker,” “Black Mirror”) as Rex Mayhew; Michael Nardone (“Traces,” “Rome”) as Frisky; and Noah Jupe (“A Quiet Place,” “Honey Boy”) as Danny Roper (who apparently now goes by “Daniel”).

The new season, which takes place eight years after the Season 1 finale, is set to air on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer in the U.K., and globally outside of the U.K. (including the U.S.) on Amazon’s Prime Video. Colman, Petrie, Hodge, Nardone and Jupe join fellow “The Night Manager” returnee Tom Hiddleston, who (as previously announced) is also back as former military officer Jonathan Pine.

Other previously announced cast include Diego Calva (“Babylon”), Camila Morrone (“Daisy Jones & The Six”, Marmalade”), Indira Varma (“Game of Thrones”), Paul Chahidi (“The Serpent Queen”) and Hayley Squires (“Beau Is Afraid”).

Story details are being kept under wraps — but the return of several cast members who were in the Season 1 orbit of villan Richard “Dicky” Roper (played by Hugh Laurie) gives hint that there is unfinished business there. That includes Jupe as Roper’s son Danny, whose life is saved early in Season 1 by Pine. Also, Nardone’s character “Frisky” was one of Roper’s henchmen, while Petrie’s Sandy played a key role in Roper’s arms dealing schemes.

Laurie is among the executive producers on Season 2 of “The Night Manager,” but so far there’s been so word on whether he’s returning. The series ended with a bit of a cliffhanger, as Roper and his team are arrested — but then the police van is taken over by arms buyers, angered by the collapse of their deal.

Series creator David Farr is also executive producing and writing the new season, which continues to be inspired by John le Carré’s novel “The Night Manager.” BAFTA-winning director Georgi Banks-Davies (“I Hate Suzie,” “Paper Girls”) is helming Season 2.

Besides Farr and Laurie, exec producers include Banks-Davies and Hiddleston; Stephen Garrett for Character 7; Joe Tsai and Arthur Wang for 127 Wall; Stephen and Simon Cornwell, Michele Wolkoff and Tessa Inkelaar for The Ink Factory; Adrián Guerra for Nostromo Pictures; William D. Johnson for Demarest Films; Nick Cornwell, Susanne Bier, Chris Rice for Fifth Season; and Gaynor Holmes for the BBC. “The Night Manager” comes from The Ink Factory in association with Character 7, Demarest Films and 127 Wall, and in co-production with Nostromo Pictures, while Fifth Season handles global distribution.

Season 1 of “The Night Manager” (which also aired on BBC One in the U.K. and on AMC in the U.S.) scored Golden Globes wins for Colman (best supporting actress), Hiddleston (best actor in a limited series or TV film) and Laurie (best supporting actor). It one of 2016’s most watched TV shows in the U.K., according to the BBC.
