Fantastic reviews and strong renewal potential
The Night Of is a rare instance of a series whose viewership has significantly increased following the premiere. The first episode drew an audience of 0.774 million viewers, while the second episode saw an increase of almost 40%, with viewership remaining steadily at that level since. Zaillian has mentioned that the creators and producers are not ruling out the possibility of a second season, and if we take great viewership numbers and unanimously top-notch ratings (9.1/10 on IMDb, 90% on Metacritic, 95% on Rotten Tomatoes) into account, a cancelation seems out of the question.
