The Bureau Seasons 1- 5






Garnering critical acclaim across the globe and winning awards galore, French spy thriller THE BUREAU is probably one of the greatest TV series you've never heard of...But that's about to change as Sundance Now UK, the AMC Networks' streaming service available as an Amazon Prime add on, is set to air the exclusive UK premiere of THE BUREAU, Season 5. This exclusive Sundance Now series arrives in full on September 17, 2020.

Seasons 1 and 2 arrive exclusively on the streaming service from August 27, 2020 to join seasons 3 and 4, so viewers can binge ahead of the season 5 premiere. THE BUREAU, Complete 1 - 5 Seasons will be available exclusively on Sundance Now.

Hailed as 'the smartest and most authentic-feeling procedural espionage series anywhere in the world' by The New York Times, the suspense filled series, from creator and showrunner Eric Rochant (Mafiosa, The Patriots) takes us into the undercover world of French agents at the DGSE, France's leading intelligence centre.

Within the DGSE (Directorate General of External Security), the 'Office of Legends' operate the most valuable members of the French intelligence services: secret agents. Spending prolonged amounts of time immersed in hostile countries, these operatives are tasked with identifying potential sources of intelligence among the people they come into contact with. Operating under a fabricated identity, they live for years in a permanent state of double identity, between an apparently normal life and their covert intelligence activity.

The thrilling first series begins with one of the top agents, Malotru, (Mathieu Kassovitz - Amelie, The Fifth Element) recalled from a lengthy undercover mission in Damascus. Although lauded as a hero by the Bureau, can he settle back into his old life after six years as someone else? And what about the Syrian girlfriend he left behind...is she who she says she is, or could she be his downfall?

The highly anticipated 10-part fifth season features two episodes directed by renowned award-winning director Jacques Audiard (Rust and Bone, A Prophet).
