According to reports, Season 2 of the much-loved British spy-thriller series The Night Manager has added Indira Varma, Paul Chahidi, and Hayley Squires to the cast.

This news comes shortly after it was revealed that Daisy Jones & The Six star Camila Morrone had joined the cast, in addition to Babylon breakout Diego Calva also signing on to play a pivotal part.

Star Tom Hiddleston, who plays Jonathan Pine, a luxury hotel manager who gets wrapped up in a crime syndicate conspiracy, is the only one confirmed to be reprising his role from the first season.

The Night Manager is based on John le Carré’s novel. It returns for two new seasons produced by BBC and Prime Video. The first season aired in 2016 and turned out to be a major success. The series was later adapted in India with Aditya Roy Kapur and Anil Kapoor playing lead parts.

Varma has several successful projects to her name, but most fans recognize her from her role as Ellaria Sand in Game of Thrones. She recently appeared opposite Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One and also plays The Duchess in the newest season of the Ncuti Gatwa-led Doctor Who.

If reports are to be believed, the new season will start filming later this year. It picks up eight years after the first season. Elizabeth Debicki played Jed Marshall in the first season but will not return for the new season.

David Farr, the series creator, will write the new seasons. Georgi Banks-Davies is onboard to direct all of Season 2. Stephen Garrett leads production, and Hugh Laurie is attached as the executive producer.

Season 2 will be available on BBC One and iPlayer in the U.K., with Prime Video holding international rights.
