A new season of the award-winning Israeli series, following the exploits of four students who dropped out of their prestigious Yeshiva and are searching for their place in the world. In this season they’ll open a yeshiva on a central, non-religious street in Jerusalem – to the chagrin of the neighbors – and not only that, but right across the street from a co-ed secular seminary. Disagreements and differences will crop up soon enough, but there’ll also be moments of harmony and bridge-building between the two worlds.

The soldiers, disguised as Palestinians, blend into the Arab community and carry out anti-terror operations. “Fauda” (Arabic for ‘Chaos’) shows the story of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On one hand Doron and his team are hunting the Hamas activist Abu-Ahmed. On the other hand one sees the tragic life of Abu-Ahmed and his family and the reasons for their escalating hatred towards Israel. The series starts when Doron, who is working as a wine-maker, learns that the most wanted Arab terrorist, whom he had caught and was presumed to be dead, is in fact alive and well and planning the next suicide bombings. From there until the end of the 12th episode, one can barely blink.
