Apple’s celebrated spy drama Tehran reaches the end of the road Friday as the Apple TV+ airs its season finale.

The episode, titled “Five Hours Until the Bombing Run,” is one of three new shows on Apple TV+ this week. It means that, for the uninitiated, the entire series is now available for viewing. (Plus non-subscribers can tune in to watch the Halloween animated classic It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.)

The preview for episode eight of Tehran reads as follows:

“Season finale. With Israeli planes approaching the reactor, Tamar, Milad, and Kadosh launch an operation as Faraz closes in on them.”

Debuting with its first three episodes in late September, Tehran is one of Apple TV+’s strongest shows so far. It’s a spy series about a Mossad hacker-agent who tries to infiltrate Tehran to destroy Iran’s nuclear reactor. You can read Cult of Mac‘s effusive review here.

Unlike many other hit Apple TV+ series, it’s not clear whether Tehran will have a follow-up season. That’s because, unlike a lot of Apple TV+ shows, this was not made exclusively for Apple, but acquired elsewhere. The show was created for Israeli television, where it debuted three months prior to its Apple TV+ debut. However, Apple has now inked a deal with creator Moshe Zander. That could mean more series — or other different series within the same overall genre — in the future.

New episode of Long Way Up

In addition, there’s a new episode of Long Way Up. This travelog documentary follows Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman as they drive across South and Central America on motorbikes. Episode nine is titled “Columbia, Panama & Costa Rica.” The preview reads:

“After their plane is delayed by the fog, Ewan and Charley embark on an unforgettable boat journey along the Columbian coast in an old trawler.”

Alright, alright, alright on Apple TV+

On top of that, there’s another episode of The Oprah Conversation. It features Oprah in conversation with the Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey about his new memoir Greenlights.
