A really captivating screenplay that gradually develops suspense becomes dramatic and is full of surprises.
Furthermore, as the series’ second season comes to an end, viewers are starting to wonder if this is the last time they will see the series or if Apple TV+ will renew it for more seasons. The show has received critical and audience acclaim around the world.

Is Tehran renewed for Season 3?
As of June 17, 2022, Tehran Season 3 is yet to be officially confirmed by Apple TV+. The second season ended with the finale episode, Blood Funeral, released on June 17, 2022. The episode is directed by Daniel Syrkin and written by Moshe Zonder & Omri Shenhar.
Considering that the series ended a few hours ago, any news or updates about a possible season renewal appear way too soon for any major network to make such significant remarks in such a short period of time. Fans should hold off until the network confirms and acknowledges this information. The network may evaluate the series’ performance and reception before renewing it for future seasons.
Tehran Season 3 Potential Release Date
Because the series has not been formally verified by the network, the prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, and the status is neither here nor there. But if we have to predict the potential release date of Tehran Season 3, it might happen sometime around mid-2023, just like the first and second seasons as the very first episodes aired on June 22, 2020, and May 6, 2022, respectively.
So, this is just speculation that the next season might follow the same pattern and release the season in a similar time frame for the viewers to watch the episodes if the network decides to continue and renew the series further.
Tehran Season 3 Expected Plot
There is no word on what the plot of Tehran Season 3 will entail, but several key plotlines have indicated possible scenarios and directions in which the series may go if renewed for another season. The official synopsis of Tehran Season 2 Episode 10, Blood Funeral, states, “Tamar doesn’t know who to trust. A cat-and-mouse game leads to deadly consequences.”
We’ve highlighted a few plotlines from the last episode so that readers may see how the episode continues the story. We recommend skipping the next paragraph if you haven’t seen the episode yet to avoid spoilers.
In the episode, the viewers got to see that Tamar is informed that The General is approaching and that she must depart. Tamar is fortunate in that everyone is ordered to return home, and she is free to depart. Tamar debates Peyman’s death with Milad and Marjan as Tamar, Milad, and Marjan are warned by Faraz that the truth will be revealed shortly. Despite the fact that he offers a solution, The General will be alone with Peyman’s body at the funeral.
Faraz warns Nahid that she isn’t safe at home and that she must attend Peyman’s burial. Yulia looks at CCTV footage of Tamar at the burial and attempts to contact Marjan. At the funeral, Vahid runs into Tamar. Meanwhile, Faraz hears from Hossein that a part has been discovered among the debris of the car. Vahid is booted out of the burial as a result of his behavior. To add salt to the wound, they now want Tamar to use the poison to kill Faraz.
As the episode progresses, we see that Tamar informs Faraz that it’s time for plan B. The General expresses his gratitude to Peyman and requests his forgiveness. Faraz, on the other hand, is heading to Peyman’s final resting place, where he will be carrying his personal belongings. Tamar tasers Amir and drives away with Milad after knocking him out. But, in an unexpected move, Nahid sprays the toxic perfume on Marjan’s face.
By the end, we see that the General discovers that Peyman’s automobile was equipped with a gadget. Peyman’s phone rings as he pledges revenge in his own honor. Before fleeing, Tamar laments at Milad’s death. The plot of the upcoming season, if renewed, can be picked up from this finale episode’s ending and continue to expand further and discover more likely dynamics that bring these characters and plot in a perfect unison narrative to continue with the major cliffhanger from the second season.
Tehran Season 3 Episodes
Although the precise amount of episodes for Tehran Season 3 has yet to be released, if the series is renewed, we may expect at least 8 episodes, each running approx 49 – 52 minutes, as the number of episodes may vary, which is ultimately dependent on the plot that the show intends to convey to the audience.
