The highly-anticipated season two of Tehran is now streaming on Apple TV+.
Tehran is an espionage tale about a Mossad agent who goes on a deep undercover mission in Tehran. It stars Niv Sultan as Tamar Rabinyan who is an Iranian-born Israeli agent and computer hacker. The story circles around Tamar and her dangerous mission to the capital city of Iran, and though she was born there, she spent most of her life in Israel so her beliefs and loyalty belong to her adoptive country.
Tehran Season One Recap
Here is a recap of what went down in the first season of Tehran. (Yes, consider this your spoiler alert).
Tamar Rabinyan goes on an undercover mission to disable a nuclear reactor stored in the Iranian capital. Her objective is to neutralize the Iranian Air Defenses so the Israeli Air Force can simultaneously attack Iran’s weakened barriers. To accomplish her mission, Tamar switches identities with Zhilia Gorbanifar who is a Muslim employee of a local electric company. Through this disguise, Tamar enters the electric company where she manages to hack the computer network that is connected to the Iranian radar system. She came very close to fulfilling her mission until her boss, who assumes Tamar as Zhila, attempts to rape her and then gets killed by Tamar during a fight. Tamar ends up running away and hides from the head of the investigation of the Revolutionary Guards.
