In July 2018, AT&T's AUDIENCE Network officially confirmed that the conspiracy thriller Condor had been renewed for Season 2. Such a positive resolution on renewal was entirely expected because of the positive statistics of the debut season.
Nonetheless, AUDIENCE Network has yet to announce the exact release date for the upcoming premiere. It would be logical that Condor Season 2 is set to premiere this June due to the schedule of the 1st installment. But no news has been announced on the subject so far.
As mentioned above, Condor has received the universal acclaim among both critics and viewers. On Rotten Tomatoes, the conspiracy thriller holds a score of 6.67/10 and a 85% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated the 1st installment of the show at 4.3/5, and have given a 89% approval rating. On Metacritic, the statistics were impressive as well, 66/100 and 6.3/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. An overall score of the spy drama on IMDb is 7.8/10 based on about 6,200 votes.

Condor Season 2 Release Date
AUDIENCE Network is keeping silence on the subject of the upcoming premiere. Yet, we tend to think that the network isn't going to change the schedule, and thereby the premiere would likely take place this summer, in June 2019. However, in any case, we will have to wait for the official announcement. As soon as DIRECTV reveals a specific release date for Condor Season 2, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates.
Condor is not a kind of show, which is, as a rule, airing on ABC or CBS. The spy thriller is targeted for more demanding audience, which is tired of soaps. The series has its roots in a series of eponymous novels by James Grady.
The storyline focuses on a mysterious case, which happened to a CIA analyst named Joe Turner, who one day discovered all his office mates were killed by two hitmen. No one managed to survive during the presumably terroristic attack, excepting Joe. He was the only CIA analyst, managed to escape. To his luck, Turner has a patron in the agency, who could point him out what to do in such a situation. However, looks like Joe can't trust anyone.
Over the course of time, Turner gradually begins to realize that he is plunged into a vast conspiracy, where the highest governmental officials are involved. Besides, all the media claim that Turner is guilty in a series of terroristic attacks. Now it's time for Joe to remember all the skills he obtained during his entire life and work with the CIA since he is the only whom he can trust. Having made a series of mistakes, Joe has learned that even those whom he regarded as friends are, in fact, the enemies. At every turn, Turner becomes closer to the mystery, which stands behind the governmental structures of the higher echelons.
