“Tehran ss 3”: release date, announcement
Sequel to the spy drama “Tehran” officially announced in February 2023!
The excellent ratings of previous seasons could be considered a guarantee that we would see new episodes. The premiere of season 3 is scheduled for early 2024. The exact release date is still unknown. In the new season, one of the main roles will be played by English actor Hugh Laurie.
It should be noted that the TV series “Tehran” became the first Israeli project awarded the international Emmy Award in the nomination “Best Drama Series”.
2 people accidentally get on a plane to Tehran who bought tickets at the last moment and were not too attentive when they were boarding. Being native Israelis, casual passengers become unwelcome guests in a foreign country. Relations between Tehran and Israel are known for their brutality, so passengers are scared to death, because they can be executed on the square, without being allowed to fly home.
The head of security Faraz Kamali arrives to talk to them. Seeing that there is nothing to fear, he decides to let them go back home. Soon he sees a video taken at the exit of the women’s toilet. One of the inattentive passengers, whom he dismissed after the conversation, spoke to an unfamiliar woman, considering her a former colleague in the Israeli troops.
The lady just waved off the uninvited interlocutor and went on. After carefully reviewing the recording, Faraz realizes that one woman went to the toilet, and another one came out. Since Tehran’s strict laws apply to women’s appearance, it was difficult to recognize another woman – she was fully dressed and her eyes were covered with sunglasses. Perhaps the Israeli woman really knows her?
Meanwhile, Tamar, who has changed clothes in the toilet, goes to a shabby apartment. She is waiting for a meeting with a professional hacker who can help her uncover many dark secrets of the enemy state. Everyone here knows her, but they take her for another person. This allows Tamar to easily move around the city and even enter secret buildings that can be useful to her for a mission.
One random mistake, and Faraz is on her trail. Dreaming of dealing with the enemy as harshly as possible, Kamali postpones his vacation with his wife and begins spying on Tamar. They are both experienced warriors, so the fight promises to be brutal…
The season 2 has become more dramatic, revealing Tamar from a new side for the viewer. Numerous losses, for which she blames herself, as well as the reshuffle of enemy forces, forced the agent to stay in Tehran again. But in season 3, she will have to gather her strength and put everything she has left on the line. Will the authorities allow such lawlessness on the territory of their homeland?
