Fauda fever

Trailer for Sea­son 2 of Is­raeli thriller raises ex­pec­ta­tions

The Jerusalem Post - - FRONT PAGE - • By AMY SPIRO

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.


LIOR RAZ stars in the sec­ond sea­son of the Is­raeli po­lit­i­cal thriller ‘Fauda.’
