Season 3

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 hopes to introduce humanitarian freedoms to his homeland. Before long, it becomes clear that Jamal lacks any sense of morality or justice, so Barry colludes with the U.S. government to overthrow him. The plan fails and Barry narrowly escapes execution.

Determined to end the corrupt Al-Fayeed rule, Barry, under the alias "Khaled," joins the insurgency, and quickly becomes a leader, and a symbol of freedom and hope.

When the Caliphate targets Abuddin, Barry and Jamal become unlikely allies. They defeat the invaders but just as Jamal prepares to make a triumphant address to his people, he is shot. Jamal's fate is unclear and the future of Abuddin is once again in Barry's hands.

The series stars Adam Rayner, Jennifer Finnigan, Moran Atias, Ashraf Barhom, Noah Silver, Alexander Karim, Cameron Gharaee, Melia Kreiling and Chris Noth.

Tyrant is executive produced by Howard Gordon, Chris Keyser, Gideon Raff and Avi Nir. The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
