Olivia Colman to reprise her role as Angela Burr in The Night Manager season two

Actor Olivia Colman will be reuniting with British star Tom Hiddleston for the second season of their critically-acclaimed show The Night Manager.

The Oscar-winning actor will reprise her role as intelligence officer Angela Burr, for which she received a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.

Hiddleston is returning to play Jonathan Pine, the handsome ex-soldier and a hotel night manager who was recruited to bring down the empire of arms dealer Richard Roper in season one, which was released in 2016 to universal praise.

Apart from Colman and Hiddleston, the cast also includes Alistair Petrie as Alexander “Sandy” Langbourne, Douglas Hodge as Rex Mayhew, Michael Nardone as Frisky and Noah Jupe as Danny Roper. Other previously announced cast members include Diego Calva, Camila Morrone, Indira Varma and Hayley Squires.

The Night Manager is a British series based on an eponymous 1993 novel by John le Carre. Season one, which was released in 2016, follows a former soldier and currently a luxury hotel manager Jonathan Pine (Hiddleston) who gets recruited by the UK's Foreign Office task force to infiltrate the circle of arms dealer Richard Roper as a part of the illegal arms trade probe. The first season starred Elizabeth Debicki, Tom Hollander, David Harewood and Hugh Laurie.

Although plot details regarding the new season are under wraps, it is known that season 2 will open eight years after the events of season 1. The BAFTA winner, George Banks-Davies will direct all six episodes of season 2 while David Farr, the series creator, will write the new seasons. With Stephen Garrett leading the production, Hugh Laurie returns to the series as the executive producer.

The series will air on BBC One and iPlayer in the U.K. and Prime Video in the rest of the world.
