This Netflix original series The Night Agent is not your average FBI thriller.
Gabriel Basso plays FBI agent Peter Sutherland who is assigned to The Night Watch. Sutherland’s job is to answer the phone so when an agent calls, he can forward the people to the correct person or agency to help the person on the other end of the line. On one night, a non- agent calls into the Night Agent phone and FBI Peter Sutherland realizes that this is different. He learns that the person on the other line is Rose Larkin (Luciane Buchanan), a cyber security entrepreneur whose aunt and uncle were attacked, and we soon learn they were former night agents. This sets off a series of events where no one can trust anyone!

The Night Watch had intrigue, twists and turns, betrayal, mystery and of course love. It had its share of action, and the story was enough to make everything that happens believable. The ending goes into what a Season 2 would look like. Luckily, Netflix renewed The Night Agent for another season. Hopefully, we will get to see what FBI agent Peter Sutherland goes next.
