It’s one of the most hotly anticipated premieres of 2017. A trailer for the second season of Fauda, the Israeli TV show that has created international buzz, emerged Tuesday night, and will have fans counting down the days until it airs.
The teaser for the show – created by Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff – and produced by Yes – features everything fans of the show will love: shooting, shouting, punching, chases and a salty mix of Hebrew and Arabic. Did I mention shooting? Yes hasn’t released an exact premiere date for the second season yet, but it is expecting to begin airing in December.
International viewers will have to wait a little longer, as Netflix would only confirm that the second season will hit the streaming service sometime in 2018.
Fauda’s first season hit Israeli airwaves in February 2015, and was added to Netflix’s lineup – with English subtitles – in December 2016.
Fauda has been such a big hit for Netflix that it signed a deal last month for two new shows from Raz and Issacharoff.
The duo will be producing two original programs for Netflix – one unnamed series and another titled Hit and Run.
The unnamed series is based on real events, and follows CIA and Mossad agents working to track down the world’s most wanted terrorist. Hit and Run, meanwhile, will see a happily married man watch his life turn upside down when his wife is killed in a mysterious hit and run accident, said Netflix.
