Covert Affairs Season 2 on DIVA Universal (Astro channel 702)
Premieres 21 February, Every Tuesday @ 9pm
Sassy undercover agent Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) returns to the field, using her exceptional linguistic skills on missions across the globe, in a brand new season of Covert Affairs. Last season, Annie was unexpectedly promoted to field operative and thrust into a world where routine assignments can turn deadly in a split second. With limited training, Annie relies on her uncanny instincts, persistence, and Auggie’s (Christopher Gorham) guidance to get the job done.
Spy work is as tough as it sounds, and Annie still manages to kick ass while taking down mobsters, transporting delicate assets in hostile situations, and of course, exposing corrupt CIA operatives. Her job’s not boring for sure!
New Developments: Annie finally comes clean to her sister that she’s an undercover at the CIA. Meanwhile, Auggie is still her right-hand man at the office – but could there be more to their relationship than meets the eye?
