Created by Nick Mohammed, “Intelligence” is a British television sitcom starring David Schwimmer, as an NSA agent assigned to act as liaison to the cyber crimes unit in the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters, who quickly antagonized the unit’s chief with his brash style and tendency to try to take over, the first season of which was released on February 21, 2020.
SEASON 2 DETAILS:
The Second Season premiered in the UK on June 8, 2021, on Sky one, while in the US, the series aired on Thursday, June 17, 2021, on Peacock.
“At the end of the first series of Intelligence, we saw NSA agent Jerry Bernstein (David Schwimmer) narrowly avoid being extradited back to the States to face charges of treason. Indebted to his boss Christine (Sylvestra Le Touzel) for stepping in to protect him at the last minute — albeit with ulterior motives — we start Intelligence Season 2 with Jerry on the back foot.
“However when it’s revealed that the Russians have got their hands on a cyberweapon that Jerry was instrumental in developing, his intel suddenly becomes vital to national, if not international, security. Facing some demons from his past along the way, by the end of episode one, he is firmly back in his alpha male comfort zone and heralded a hero.
“Meanwhile Joseph (Nick Mohammed) has romance on the cards since sparking up an online friendship with Charlotte from the GCHQ offices in Bude. Romance blossoms and not even Jerry’s meddling nor Christine’s ban on cross-departmental relationships can get in the way. As the series progresses, however, it soon becomes clear that while the initial cyberattack has been thwarted, the Russians are able to mutate the cyberweapon and Jerry’s personal security comes under serious threat.”
