A second series of award-winning drama The Night Manager is in development for the BBC.
Director Susanne Bier said a script was “slowly being developed” for afollow-up.
“We all very much want to do a season two, but the thing we absolutely do not want is to do something that does not live up to the level of season one,” she said.
“That would be a really bad idea.”
The series was based on John le Carre’s 1993 novel – but the book does not have a sequel.
Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman starred in the UK thriller, which won Golden Globes and an Emmy Award.
Hiddleston has said he would consider making a second series.
It screened in Australia on BBC First and will get a Free to Air screening on SBS from March 22nd.
