Netflix is expanding its spy-thriller genre. While earlier this year the streaming giant released The Recruit, starring Noah Centino as a young spy, it’s now added another exciting addition to its catalogue. Here is what we know about Netflix’s thrilling new series The Night Agent.

Created by Shawn Ryan, The Night Agent’s story revolves around an FBI agent who gets involved in a deadly conspiracy about a mole in the White House.

Is Netflix’s ‘The Night Agent’ based on a book?

The Night Agent is based on the novel of the same name by author Matthew Quirk. Published in 2019, it is a thriller set in Washington, D.C. and follows the story of a young FBI agent named Peter Sutherland. He is assigned with investigating a suspicious case involving the death of a White House staff and soon discovers a web of corruption and conspiracies that threaten to bring down the entire government. Along the way, he must navigate dangerous alliances and confront his own personal demons, all the while trying to stay alive and uncover the truth.
