On Tuesday, Apple officially announced that it will premiere the Israel-Iran espionage thriller Tehran on Friday, September 25. There will be a total of eight episodes for the series, with the first three episodes landing on Friday right out of the gate. After that, new episodes will premiere every Friday. The show was written by Moshe Zonder (Fauda) and stars Niv Sultan.
Here’s how it’s described:
“Tehran” tells the thrilling story of a Mossad agent who goes deep undercover on a dangerous mission in Tehran that places her and everyone around her in dire jeopardy. The series stars young Israeli actress Niv Sultan (“Flawless,” “She Has It,” “Temporarily Dead”), critically acclaimed actor Shaun Toub (“Homeland,” “Crash”), international star Navid Negahban (“Homeland,” “Legion,” “Aladdin”), Shervin Alenabi (“Baghdad in My Shadow”), Liraz Charhi (“A Late Quartet”) and Menashe Noy (“Big Bad Wolves,” “Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem”).
Apple is serving as a co-producer alongside Israeli network Kan 11 and Cineflix Rights on this one. The series is directed by Daniel Syrkin, and Omri Shenhar is also serving as a writer on the series.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a trailer for the series just yet. However, now that we know when the show will premiere on Apple TV+, that should be fixed soon enough. What do you think of this one? Will you be checking it out when it premieres next month?
