Apple committed to a second season of its spy thriller Tehran on Tuesday. The first season drew praise from critics when it streamed on Apple TV+, and the adventures of Mossad agent Tamar Rabinyan will continue.

Critics described the series as “gripping,” “heart stopping,” and a “captivating spy thriller.” It has a 93% critics’ approval score on Rotten Tomatoes. The Cult of Mac review calls it Apple’s “best dramatic show by a mile.” And says it, “delivers stunning displays of intrigue and backstabbing.”

The head of Tehran‘s production company was already optimistic. “I can say that we are working on the second season,” said Julien Leroux, CEO and founder of Paper Entertainment told Variety in December. But there’s no word yet on when new episodes of the spy drama will premier on Apple streaming service.

Tehran goes deep undercover

The action in season one centers on Tamar Rabinyan, a young Mossad hacker-agent on a mission to neutralize Iranian radar so a nuclear reactor can be destroyed. But she fails, and must hide out with young opponents of the Iranian regime. Living in the underground, she falls in love with a pro-democracy activist. But she never gives up on her mission.

Watch the trailer:

The first 8 episodes of Tehran are available to binge now on Apple TV+. The service costs $4.99 a month, and includes over 50 series and films, either available now or coming soon. There are thrillers, crime dramas, comedies and documentaries.
