Get ready to witness the new trailer for Tehran Season 2, which features Glenn Close as a Mossad spy.
If you enjoyed the first season of Tehran, which was full of suspense and action moments, as well as these fantastic complex characters and their story arcs that had you glued to your television screens, then there’s some good news for you. The critically acclaimed thriller espionage series is returning for yet another spectacular season this summer.
Tehran’s most outstanding achievement is its examination of the ruthless spiral of contemporary intelligence work, as well as the price paid by its practitioners. Furthermore, the cliffhanger has sparked a lot of conjecture about what will happen in the next chapter, which is something to anticipate.
Tehran was created by Moshe Zonder, Dana Eden, and Maor Kohn. Daniel Syrkin acts as director, while Omri Shenhar writes alongside Zonder. Syrkin and Shenhar are also co-creators.
Executive producers include Dana 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, and Zonder, Shenhar, Syrkin, and Eldad Koblenz for Kan 11. The thriller drama series debuted on Apple TV+ last year, with release dates in Israel on June 22, 2020, and internationally on September 25, 2020.

Tehran Season 2 Trailer
The official trailer for Tehran Season 2 has been released by Apple TV+, which fans have been anticipating for a long time.
Take a look at the official trailer below:
In the trailer, Season 1 events are recapped along with a sequence in which Glenn Close can be seen joining hands with Niv Sultan and Shaun Toub for yet another action-packed new season of Tehran, which looks very promising with the visually stunning camera angles and shots that compliments the action and the tone of the series to explore the possibilities much further for a female lead action tv series.
What can fans expect to see in Tehran Season 2?
As the series approaches its release, we still have to wait for any new information on possible significant plotlines that may be unveiled in the near future. But we have listed out some of the important takeaways for the next season that fans should be anticipating seeing in the coming episodes.
Although little is known about the plot, the story will likely continue where it left off. Tamar failed the task in the first season despite her best efforts. We know that Tamar let Faraz go because he claimed that if he had been in the same situation as her father, he would have lived.
The Israelis now face a more serious challenge as a result of the failure of the mission. Tamar has no choice but to return to the job site and finish it. It also looks like Milad and Tamar will be featured more prominently in the second season, allowing us to have a better understanding of their personalities.
However, there will be new characters in the show that will agitate the plot and aid Tamar in her objective to destroy the Iranian nuclear power plant. We might explore the fact that Tamar and her squad must complete a few tasks in order for the mission to be successful this time.

The overall plot of Tehran
According to Wikipedia, Protagonist Tamar Rabinyan, a young Jewish woman born in Iran but raised in Israel, is a Mossad agent and computer hacker on an undercover mission in the Iranian capital to disable a nuclear reactor.
Her objective is to neutralize Iranian air defenses so that the Israeli Air Force can bomb a nuclear plant and prevent Iran from obtaining an atomic bomb.
When she arrives in Iran, she switches identities with Zhila Gorbanifar, a Muslim employee of the local electric company. In Zhila’s place, she enters the electric company station and connects to the computer network.
Then she tries to cut electric power to the Iranian radar system in order to facilitate an ongoing Israeli Air Force attack. Her mission fails because her boss, who thinks she is Zhila, tries to rape her and is killed in a fight that ensues.
After escaping, Tamar has to go into hiding. Being born in Iran and having moved to Israel when she was six, Tamar now discovers her local roots, goes to see her aunt, and befriends Iranian pro-democracy activists. Meanwhile, she is hunted by Faraz Kamali, head of investigations of the Revolutionary Guards.
