Apple TV+ has renewed Tehran for a third season – and added Hugh Laurie to the cast for good measure.
The spy thriller is created by Moshe Zonder, Dana Eden and Maor Kohn, and directed by Daniel Syrkin, who also serves as co-creator. It follows Tamar (Niv Sultan), a Mossad hacker-agent who infiltrates Tehran under a false identity. After going rogue at the end of Season 2, in Season 3, Tamar must find a way to reinvent herself and win back the Mossad’s support if she is to survive.
Season 2 saw the addition of Glenn Close to the cast and now, Hugh Laurie is joining the ensemble as 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.
Production on Season 3 is now underway.
