THE BUREAU, Season 5, Ep 1 (Sundance Now Exclusive Premiere)

"The French answer to Homeland, but with more subtlety and less cry face" - SBS

"Focusing on the human toll of espionage, but with enough cutting-edge gadgetry and au courant storylines to keep things provocative" - The New York Times

"A brilliant extended piece of spycraft... each episode is an immersive experience" - Vanity Fair

"The series practicing the best spycraft... Intricately plotted" - Vulture

Eight months after Malotru's alleged death at the hands of Russian separatists, Le Figaro publishes an article according to which the CIA murdered him with the consent of the DGSE. The news causes panic among DGSE agents and illegal immigrants. Cesar ("Pacemaker") continues his mission within the Russian intelligence service, the FSB. He learns of Malotru's death and, like other illegal immigrants, panics.
