Special Ops: Lioness

The Paramount+ original series Lioness has been renewed for a second season, with production currently taking place in Texas. The renewal comes after a successful first season that debuted in July 2023 and became the streamer’s most-watched global premiere at launch.

Created by Taylor Sheridan, the creator of Yellowstone, Lioness is an espionage thriller inspired by an actual US military program. The series follows Zoe Saldaña as Joe, a CIA operative struggling to balance her personal and professional lives, who goes undercover to infiltrate a terrorist organization.

The first season garnered strong viewership and acclaim for its high-stakes narrative and stellar performances. Executive Vice President of Programming for Paramount+, Jeff Grossman, praised the show’s global appeal and the powerhouse performances of its lead actors.
