STORY Tamar is a Mossad hacker who travels to Iran under a false name to damage the nuclear capacity of the country. The mission is fraught with peril, as Mossad and Mois (Iranian Intelligence Agency) agents engage in a lethal game of cat and mouse.
REVIEW When the first season of ‘Tehran’ debuted, it took some time for viewers to recognize the series’ true potential. However, the series soared to notoriety as a leading spy drama due to word of mouth. The second season begins exactly where the first left off, after a two-year hiatus. After viewing the first two episodes (which were made available via a streaming website), it is reasonable to conclude that the story elements and character additions have only improved.
At the beginning of the series, Tamar and her Iranian lover and partner, Milad, are both in hiding. Israel’s plan to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities was abandoned at the last minute in the previous season, and all but one of the pilots went home safely.
Tamar joins forces with her other spies to rescue the pilot from a hospital filled with break-ins and escapes. In the same operation, Glenn Close, disguised as a psychotherapist, is introduced as a Mossad agent. Her presence lifts the whole tone of the series to an entirely new level.
Glenn Close appears at the end of the first episode as Marjan Montazeri, who, in addition to English, knows Farsi fluently. The second episode reveals additional information about her character and establishes her as the Mossad official in charge of Iran. The eight-time Oscar nominee appears at the end of the first episode as Marjan Montazeri, a fluent Farsi speaker in addition to English.
The second episode provides greater details about her character and reveals that she is a Mossad agent in charge of Mossad activities in Iran. Her personality emanates authority and she is a perfectionist who conducts her activities with a cool, calculated strategy. The second episode has agents attempting to obtain access to Iran’s most “powerful guy” via his son, with drug dealings serving as the gateway. It would be fascinating to witness how Mossad agents bring this operation to a conclusion.
With the popularity of ‘Slow Horses’, ‘Tehran’ should now be on everyone’s radar as the season for spy dramas. This series is comparable to ‘Homeland’ in terms of pacing and the number of plot twists it has.
It is also refreshing to witness an international spy thriller instead of one set in the United States or Europe. In addition to being novel, the series’ setting and surroundings contribute to its dark and frightening atmosphere. When the content universe is rife with CIA and MI5, it is both interesting and uncommon to discover Mossad and Mois in the spotlight.
Niv Sultan, who is in good shape and has fully assimilated the part, portrays Tamar. She transforms like a chameleon, whether she is performing medical pranks or using her feminine side to defend Milad against the drug dealer Babek. In addition, Faraz is reinstated in his position, and he has also produced this season.
Because it is not influenced by an American perspective, ‘Tehran’ is an espionage series that offers something truly distinctive. Despite its outlandish premise, the realism of this spy drama appears to be very high. The series’ authors and outstanding actors deserve credit for making this believable.

How Many Episodes Will Tehran Season 2 Have?
There has been no official word on the probable amount of episodes for Season 2 of Tehran. As a result, it will be impossible to identify the actual episode count and titles for the following season.
If we must make a guess, there will be at least as many episodes as in the previous season. Unless there is a much wider tale to convey, television shows often continue the plot similarly.
