While there have been rumors that that the spy television show would have another season, the lead star debunked all of them. “We made some alterations, we updated it so it had a political resonance and we changed the ending a little bit,” the 35-year-old former actor of Woody Allen’s romantic comedy “Midnight in Paris,” who played the concierge-turned-spy Jonathan Pine in the series revealed. “I know the rumours about it extending, but none of that is real.”
Tom Hiddleston further narrated that Pine’s story in “The Night Manager” is already done. “As it stands, Pine exists for six hours in a mini series. The story feels complete,” he said. “I only ever conceived of it as an adaptation of a complete novel,” he added.
Meanwhile, his co-star Hugh Laurie confirmed that their project together no longer has an extension, according to the Sunday Mirror. “We are done,” the 56-year-old “House” star pointed out.
“The Night Manager” was based on John le Carre’s novel.
While this is sad news, fans of Tom Hiddleston may need not feel sad. There are rumors that he will star in another American drama –“Sherlock” of the PBS.
The Inquisitr’s report suggested that a new character would be added in the drama series’ upcoming fourth season and this might be Hiddleston! Accordingly, the former star of “The Avengers” is set to star as the other brother of Sherlock, portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch.
While Sherrinford Holmes, the third Holmes brother, was never mentioned in the books written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the character was reportedly “invented” by a Holmes scholar.
Despite this speculation though, there has been no confirmation yet from the production team that Tom Hiddleston is joining the cast.
