Still Waiting to Hear of THE NIGHT OF Season Two

Still Waiting to Hear of THE NIGHT OF Season Two

With the way THE NIGHT OF ended its run back on 08.28 it appeared as there could be more story to tell. As of this posting it has almost been a month and there has been no official word on whether there is a Season Two. Think of the possibilities. At the very least, perhaps Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed) would always be haunted by the ordeal that one night in October and the aftermath of it all. The Khan family could also see lasting effects and you could wonder what was ahead for John Stone (John Tuturro). There is also the possibility of Helen Weiss (Jeannie Berlin) and Dennis Box going after who they believe is the real killer (Ray Halle played...

Almost every moment is more intense as we build up to the end and all sides are digging in to survive.

Now the defense tries its luck. Some damning evidence faces Nasir Khan. We still don’t know, maybe he is guilty. Maybe, the life he has settled into at Riker’s is his only reality now ad yet the good fight is still fought in his name. Part VII:...

THE NIGHT OF: “Part II: Subtle Beast” Review

  In this brutal, tight limited series we are being taken through the steps of the criminal justice system and as we watch are not we beginning to ask if it works properly? As it plays out we look at all the jobs required, all the angles that need to be analyzed for any one given crime, all the dancing around and carefully placed words.
