Tehran is returning for a third season. Apple TV+ has renewed the spy drama and Hugh Laurie (House) is joining the series. The fate of Laurie’s previous series, Avenue 5 on HBO, is still officially up in the air but appears unlikely to be renewed for a third season.
Niv Sultan, Shaun Toub, Shila Ommi, Sasson Gabai, Bahar Pars, and Phoenix Raei star in the Tehran series which follows a Mossad agent, Tamar (Sultan), who goes undercover in Tehran. After going rogue in the second season, Tamar must find a way to reinvent herself and regain Mossad’s support. Season two, which featured Glenn Close, finished airing last June.
Apple TV+ revealed more about the renewal of the series in a press release.
Apple TV+ today announced that its international Emmy Award-winning global espionage thriller “Tehran” has been renewed for a third season, and that multi-Emmy Award nominee Hugh Laurie (“House M.D.,” “The Night Manager,” “Roadkill”) is set to join the ensemble cast. Created by Moshe Zonder, Dana Eden and Maor Kohn, and directed by Daniel Syrkin, season three of “Tehran” 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.” Season three of “Tehran” 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.
