‘Tehran’ returns for season 2 with the first two episodes of the season. Season 2 follows Tamar (Niv Sultan), a Mossad hacker-agent who infiltrates Tehran under a false identity to help destroy Iran’s nuclear reactor. But when her mission fails, Tamar must plan an operation that will place everyone dear to her in jeopardy. Two-time Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Glenn Close is joining the show, along with Shaun Toub, Shervin Alenabi, Arash Marandi, and Shila Ommi also returning.
‘Tamar has been in hiding along with her lover boyfriend Milad, who is an Iranian. She’s a Mossad agent. So we have already some new tension. Tamar is just about to leave Tehran when she’s recruited by the Mossad to do one last mission,’ EP Daniel Syrkin told HollywoodLife. ‘Of course, this mission becomes complicated as it should be in any good story. Tamar finds herself again sucked back into international espionage. This time she’s conflicted with her love interest Milad, who is a local guy, and we’re not sure that Mossad likes it very much. She has a personal vendetta, too. She gets to become, I would say, a more sophisticated spy in this season.’ See photos of ‘Tehran’ season 2 in our gallery.
