Talking about the second season, Aditya Roy said in a press statement, "The success of the first part has been truly humbling, and we are excited for audiences to see what lies ahead in the journey of Shelly and Shaan. The twists, the thrill and the tension - will all conclude. The wait for The Night Manager: Part 2 is finally over and we're looking forward to all the reactions".
Anil added, "I am overwhelmed with the love and support that our fans have shown for The Night Manager. Their enthusiasm has pushed us to work harder. I can't wait for everyone to witness the twists and turns that lie ahead. Shelly will be seen at his best."
Creator and director of the movie Sandeep Modi also narrated his thoughts on the sequel as he promises more fun to the viewers. He said, “It's overwhelming to see the response for the first part and I am grateful for the love received by everyone. The Night Manager: Part 2 is twice the action and thrill. The strong alliance between Shaan and Shelly will shake the crux of everything and spin a new web of conspiracies and deception. There is a lot more to see in the coming part and the audience will enjoy each bit of the series.”
