The official trailer has been revealed for COBRA: CYBERWAR, an action-packed and suspenseful Sky Original drama coming to our screens next month. The series looks at what happens when cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure and fake news are used to subvert democracy.
The show’s second series sees Robert Carlyle return as Prime Minster Robert Sutherland and Victoria Hamilton is also back as his Chief of Staff Anna Marshall. Other returning cast include Richard Dormer as Fraser Walker, Head of Civil Contingencies, David Haig as Archie Glover-Morgan, Marsha Thomason as Francine Bridge, Director of Policy. Richard Pepple is joining the cast as Joseph Obasi, Home Secretary.
In the aftermath of both solar and political storms, Prime Minister Robert Sutherland attempts to steer the country on a more even course. He is assisted, as ever, by his loyal Chief of Staff Anna Marshall alongside a team of dedicated advisers.
An assassination on British soil, however, unleashes a chain of events that threatens to develop into a crisis even more serious than the one from which the country has recently emerged. An invisible global enemy, not playing by the rules and operating outside national boundaries, appears to be bent on our destruction, leaving an entire country unsure as to who is friend and who is foe.
