Cliffhangers, it's finally time to watch Tehran season 2 on Apple TV Plus — and Tamar just got the help that (we hope) she needed. After the first season saw Mossad agent and hacker Tamar Rabinyan (Niv Sultan) fail to destroy Iran's nuclear reactor, a new ally has arrived to help her try and get things right again.

Season 1 of Tehran drew positive comparisons to Homeland and 24, with double-crossing and secret operative reveals to constantly keep audiences on their toes. Things ended in a true state of chaos with the reveal that the Iranians had set her up the whole time.

And since that season concluded with Israeli pilots being shot down left and right, and Tamar and her ally Milad on the run, it's all too likely that season 2 will pick off right where season 1 ended. Tamar's likely still processing the shock of Yael's revelation that she was working against her (though Yael isn't around anymore, now that Faraz took her out). 

Hopefully she can trust Marjan Montazeri (Glenn Close), her new ally who's come to save her after the events of season 1. That is, unless Marjan is also a double-agent.

Tehran season 1 earned a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, so we're hoping season 2 gets a similarly strong reception. Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Tehran season 2 online. Plus, check out the trailer below:

Tehran season 2 trailers

The official Tehran season 2 trailer focuses on how Tamar is in a state of adaptation, following the mistakes of last season. Marjan has been sent into the fire to help her in this endeavor, and their targets are aware their lives are in danger. Tamar also warns Milad (Shervin Alenabi) that her ability to protect him could become compromised.

The below teaser trailer for Tehran season 2 shows how Tamar's new colleague Marjan is plenty intimidating. She demands complete transparency from Tamaar, as her life is now on the line.

How to watch Tehran season 2 from anywhere

If you're stuck abroad — in one of the few countries where Apple TV Plus is not available — you will likely run into geo-fenced restrictions on the platforms and services you can use. But with the help of a virtual private network (VPN), you can watch Tehran season 2 and all the other services you already pay for no matter where you are.

It also works on practically any device, starting with iOS and Android and including streaming devices such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick and Apple TV.
