Season 2

Tyrant is the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the inner workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation.

Bassam "Barry" Al-Fayeed (Adam Rayner), the youngest son of a war-torn country's controversial dictator, returns to his homeland after a self-imposed 20-year exile in America, only to be forced back into the treacherous familial and national politics of his youth.

When his brother, Jamal (Ashraf Barhom), assumes the presidency, Barry becomes a powerful force within the government, fueled by visions of bringing humanitarian freedoms to his homeland.

Upon realising that Jamal lacks any sense of justice or morality, Barry colluded with members of the U.S. government on a failed attempt at overthrowing his tyrannical reign and was arrested on charges of treason.

Having been betrayed by the West, Jamal now sets his sights on the East, developing an alliance with China that he hopes will make Abbudin a global power.

But Barry continues to be a thorn in Jamal's side, becoming a symbol of freedom for the increasingly vocal insurgency.

In the first episode of Season 2, Barry awaits punishment for leading a failed coup, while Jamal agonises over whether or not to execute him. Molly fights to secure Barry's freedom before it's too late while Ihab and Samira turn to desperate tactics.

Howard Gordon serves as Executive Producer/Showunner, along with Executive Producers Glenn Gordon Caron, Chris Kyser, Gideon Raff, Avi Nir and Hugh Fitzpatrick. Tyrant is produced by FX Productions and Fox 21 Television Studios.
