‘The Bureau’ is a French political thriller, created by Éric Rochant, that airs on Canal+ in its home country. It is centered around the lives of agents, employed in the DGSE (General Directorate of External Security), the nation’s main external security service. Praised for its performances, plot, and a real take on events, the fictional spy drama has won several awards.
This top-rated show has become a brand in France, has led to the development of an interactive experience at the science museum Cite des Sciences et de l’Industrie in Paris, and inspired a podcast titled ‘Espion, Une Vie sous Légende’. For the US audience, the series airs on Sundance Now. And since its fifth edition has already concluded in France, here’s when ‘The Bureau’ season 5 releases in the United States.
