AMC Networks’ streaming service Sundance Now features the Exclusive North American premiere of the critically acclaimed French spy thriller The Bureau’s Season 5 on Thursday, June 18, 2020. A new episode added every Thursday after. This highly anticipated 10-part new season features two episodes directed by renowned award-winning director Jacques Audiard. 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.
Mathieu Amalric plays JJA, the Director of Internal Security. He has taken over managing the office. Meanwhile, Marie-Jeanne, played by Florence Loiret Caille, has opted to get out of the office and test her fieldwork skills on the ground in Egypt. The DGSE will be shaken up by rumors published about Malotru’s (Mathieu Kassovitz) fate: is he dead or alive? What role did DGSE and the CIA play? The leaks bring back old demons for JJA, increasing his paranoia and worrying his closest collaborators, Sisteron (Jonathan Zaccaï) and Ellenstein (Jules Sagot). His obsessions are joined by a new agent, Mille Sabordsm played by Louis Garrel, who tries to approach the Saudi secret services while investigating the sacrificial victim Paul Lefebvre. Another collateral victim of Malotru’s disappearance: César (Stefan Crepon), the genius geek, who infiltrated the best cyber-attackers of the FSB who are now preparing a large-scale operation. Check out its release June 18th, 2020 on Sundance Now!
