Will The Night Manager return for a second series?

The BBC One drama series based on an adaptation of John le Carré's best selling novel of the same name, was a ratings hit, and some three weeks following its nail-biting finale, it is still very much missed from our screens.

The Night Manager featured a stellar cast, including Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, Elizabeth Debicki and Tom Hollander.

It was only ever billed for one series, as it is based on le Carré's one book, but the cast wouldn't mind seeing reprising their roles.

And now, Tom Hiddleston has revealed that le Carré could be up for writing a sequel.

"It's fascinating to hear that le Carré himself is up for it and considering writing new material for characters he created 25 years ago," Tom told Variety. "I think it would be the first time he's ever done that. The chance to continue the journey would be very exciting if it presented itself."

Laurie added: "We really need le Carré to write another novel, and we need it sharpish. I don't have that relationship with him. Can you tell him?"

Fingers crossed!
