No stranger to Hulu audiences after leading "The Handmaid’s Tale" for the better part of a decade, Elisabeth Moss takes on the role of Imogen Salter, a chameleon like MI6 agent tasked with getting close to suspected ISIS commander Adilah El Idrissi (Yumna Marwan).

Adilah holds information that could save (or destroy) thousands of lives, and in an epic globe-trotting journey that takes the pair from Syria to Paris, the two women treat secrets as currency, entering into a fragile alliance and perhaps even a burgeoning friendship. Meanwhile, both the CIA and the DGSE vie for control of the situation, commencing their own game of espionage as the outside threat increases. 

Other cast members include Dali Benssalah as Malik, Imogen’s DGSE contact, Josh Charles as Max, his CIA counterpart and "The Following" star James Purefoy as Sir Michael Althorp. Meanwhile, director Damon Thomas is familiar with taught, female led, double crossing espionage having helmed multiple episodes of "Killing Eve".

Steven Knight’s latest looks to be an absolute nail-biter, so read our guide below for how to watch "The Veil" online and from anywhere in the world.
