'Tehran', an Israeli TV spy thriller drama on Apple TV+, was officially renewed for a second season on January 26, 2021, just a few weeks after the first season's opening episode aired. Tehran is a terrific thriller and drama series that has gained acclaim from viewers all around the world. The TV show is one of Apple TV+'s most well-known originals.
The first season of 'Tehran' debuted on Israel's Kan public channel in June 2020, followed by a global premiere on Apple TV+ in September of the same year. It delves into the realm of espionage, with a particular emphasis on the Israeli-Iranian conflict. Because of the popularity of several such series, major American TV networks and streaming behemoths jumped on the bandwagon of acquiring foreign TV shows created abroad. The series follows Tamar, a Mossad hacker-agent, who infiltrates the city of Tehran under a fake name to sabotage Iran's nuclear plant. Her plan, however, falls apart, and she is forced to devise a new operation, putting everyone she cares about in danger.

When will 'Tehran' Season 2 release and where can you watch it?

The first two episodes of the second season of the international Emmy Award-winning series 'Tehran' will premiere on Friday, May 6, 2022. A new episode will air every Friday during the eight-episode run.

What is 'Tehran' Season 2 all about?

The new season of Apple TV+'s espionage thriller 'Tehran' is just around the corner, and the latest teaser hints that Mossad spy Tamar Rabinyan is in even more peril. In the teaser, Glenn Close's Marjan Montazeri tells Tamar, “Now that we’re working together, my life depends on the decisions you make.” This warning is followed by visuals of explosions, shoot-outs, automobile chases, and a heated staredown with an Oscar candidate. Even though nothing is known about the narrative, the story will most likely pick up where it left off. Despite her best efforts, Tamar failed the job in the first season. We know Tamar let Faraz go because he stated he would have lived if he had been in the same predicament as her father. As a result of the mission's failure, Israel today faces a more significant issue. Tamar has no option but to return to the construction site and finish the task. Milad and Tamar will also be featured more extensively in the second season, giving us a greater knowledge of their characters. There will, however, be new characters in the program that will stir the storyline and help Tamar in her goal of destroying the Iranian nuclear power facility. We may look into the possibility that Tamar and her team must fulfill a few chores for the operation to be successful this time.

Who stars in 'Tehran' Season 2?

Niv Sultan, the show's main lead, plays Tamar, a Mossad agent. Shaun Toub plays the role of Faraz Kamali, the Revolutionary Guard investigating Tamar. Masoud Tabrizi is potrayed by Navid Negahban.

Niv Sultan plays Tamar Rabinyan, a Mossad computer hacker agent, who is entrusted with deactivating an Iranian nuclear reactor on her very first quest in Tehran, her birthplace. Jerusalem-born Sultan had always wanted to be an actor, but the global exposure from the Apple contract surprised her, given she had spent most of her career working on programs in her own country. Sultan has now inked a deal with WME, which might lead to opportunities in the United States.


Season 2 will see the return of all the original cast members. Other actors in the show include Menashe Noy and Liraz Charhi. Glenn Close is one of the famous talents we'll get to see in 'Tehran' Season 2. Close has received many Academy Award nominations and will be a series regular in the forthcoming season. According to Apple, she will portray a British woman named Marjan Montazeri who lives in Tehran. The show also stars Shaun Toub as Faraz, the chief of internal investigations for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, and Shervin Alenabi as Milad, a young Iranian dissident, and hacker who becomes entangled in Tamar's web of lies.

Who are the showrunners?

Moshe Zonder, who previously developed the blockbuster Netflix series 'Fauda', created the series, which is co-produced by Apple TV+, Cineflix, and Kan 11.
