Tom Hiddleston says there will not be another series of 'The Night Manager' because the story is "complete"
Tom Hiddleston doesn't want to do another series of 'The Night Manager'.
The 35-year-old actor - who played spy Jonathan Pine in the BBC1 crime thriller - feels the hit programme, which is an adaptation of the John le Carré's novel of the same name, doesn't need to return for another installment.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "As it stands, Pine exists for six hours in a mini series. The story feels complete. I only ever conceived of it as an adaptation of a complete novel. We made some alterations, we updated it so it had a political resonance and we changed the ending a little bit. I know the rumours about it extending, but none of that is real."
And Tom's co-star Hugh Laurie, who played an arms dealer called Richard Roper in the series, agrees with the actor.
He said: "It's based on a novel, we've got to the end of the novel and John le Carré has yet to write another novel. So in cold practical terms, no, we're done."
While it looks unlikely there will be another outing of the popular show, it was previously reported that the author's sons held talks with production company Ink Factory for a series based on the same characters.
