Don't miss season 1 of Condor - streaming online on Showmax.
In this tense spy thriller, CIA analyst Joe Turner (Max Irons) goes on the run after his entire team is assassinated. He soon learns that those he thought were his enemies might be his only allies.
A new episode of Condor airs every Monday on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) at 21:00. Here’s the kicker ... you don’t have to wait a week to watch the next episode - it will be available immediately to watch on Showmax the very same night!
The streaming service is available to DStv Premium customers at no extra cost, plus all previous episodes of the series will be available to binge-watch from the very beginning on Showmax.
The series is a modern take on the 1970’s film Three Days of the Condor, which was itself based on the spy novels Six Days of the Condor by James Grady. Expect twists and turns as Joe Turner uncovers what’s really going on at the CIA after his work gets his colleagues killed and he’s blamed for the crime. In this fast-paced series, he must work quickly to find out who is behind a frightening plan that threatens millions of lives.
In an interview with Collider, Max Irons revealed how deep the conspiracy goes: “It’s very far-reaching. He starts to put it together, but it takes him awhile. Joe’s initial responsibility is just to survive and evaluate the immediate landscape around him. That’s the best that he can do. As the show progress, especially in the later episodes, he starts to get a sense of what’s what, but even then, it’s very hard. When you throw a stone into a well, you never know quite how deep the well is. There’s no real way to come to a concrete answer with these things, as far as who’s behind what. The priority for him is pure survival, in the beginning.”
