Apple TV+ has announced Tehran Season 3, with Emmy Award nominee Hugh Laurie joining the cast, and unveiled the trailer for French and English-language thriller Liaison.
Hugh Laurie‘s credits include House M.D., The Night Manager, and Roadkill. Created by Moshe Zonder, Dana Eden and Maor Kohn, and directed by Daniel Syrkin, Tehran Season 3 is now in production.
After its global debut on Apple TV+ last summer, which featured Glenn Close, the second season of Tehran was hailed as “nail-biting,” “thrilling” and “one of the most suspenseful Israeli shows ever made.” Tehran Season 3 will expand its cast with Hugh Laurie in the role of Eric Peterson, a South African nuclear inspector.
Laurie will star alongside Niv Sultan, who will reprise her widely acclaimed role as Mossad agent Tamar Rabinyan, as well as returning stars Shaun Toub and Shila Ommi, and new additions Sasson Gabai, Bahar Pars and Phoenix Raei.
Tehran follows Tamar (Sultan), a Mossad hacker-agent who infiltrates Tehran under a false identity. After going rogue at the end of season two and reeling from the loss of her closest allies, in season three, Tamar must find a way to reinvent herself and win back the Mossad’s support if she is to survive.
Tehran is created by Moshe Zonder, Dana Eden and Maor Kohn, and directed by Daniel Syrkin, who also serves as co-creator.
The executive producers are Eden and Shula Spiegel for Donna and Shula Productions, Alon Aranya for Paper Plane Productions, Julien Leroux for Paper Entertainment, Peter Emerson for Cineflix Studios, Tony Saint, Daniel Syrkin, Moshe Zonder, Dari Shai Slutzky and Tal Fraifeld for Kan.
Seasons one and two of Tehran are now streaming globally on Apple TV+.
