A synopsis shares: "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."

The first season of COBRA achieved a cumulative launch audience of 2.2 million, making it one of Sky One’s most successful drama series in recent years as well as being one of Sky's most rapidly binged box-sets.

COBRA: CYBERWAR is coming to Sky One and streaming service NOW this autumn.
