Now that she’s been officially declared dead, Annie has a new name, a new look, and a new mission: travel to Geneva and get close to Henry Wilcox’s ex-wife, Sana, in the hopes that she can help take Henry down. 

Meanwhile, things are swiftly changing at Langley. Eric Brathwaite and his new consultant Henry Wilcox are seemingly running the show, while Joan and Auggie have been exiled to low clearance level jobs. But that won’t stop them from continuing their work trying to nail Henry. As Joan, who believes Annie to be dead, uses what’s left of her Agency access to look into Henry’s finances, Auggie and Calder—the only people who know the truth about Annie—keep up a charade of hating each other while working together in secret to drive Henry and Eric apart. 

As her friends mourn and move forward with their missions, Annie makes progress of her own. She gets close to Sana though a grief support group, and soon lands a job at the investment firm run by Sana’s fiancé, David. But an encounter with one of Henry’s henchmen throws a wrench in Annie’s plan. Now, she’s got to deal with a dangerous prisoner and convince Sana that the only way for either of them to stay safe is to team up against Henry. 

About Covert Affairs

The critically acclaimed original, COVERT AFFAIRS, follows the pursuits of CIA operative Annie Walker, whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct take her on dangerous top-secret assignments around the globe. Last season, Annie traveled to Russia in pursuit of her former boss turned double agent Lena Smith (guest star Sarah Clarke), who shot her twice in the chest and killed Simon (guest star Richard Coyle), an asset and the man Annie was falling in love with. Thanks to a dramatic rescue led by Auggie (Christopher Gorham), Annie escaped her Russian prison cell and returned home. Back in the States, Auggie made a dramatic, long-awaited move when he finally kissed Annie resulting in the reveal of their romantic feelings for one another. 

Season four picks up with even more complications at the agency, when Annie aligns with the infamous former head of the Department of Clandestine Services, Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin), in a dangerous, undercover mission that puts those closest to her in jeopardy. Hill Harper will play Calder Michaels, an ambitious CIA station chief based in Latin America.  Intelligent, charismatic and a bit cocky, Michaels ascended to a very high position at a relatively young age and is plotting his way into a bigger position back in Washington. In his journey for greater power, he will attempt to make Annie and Auggie his allies, but his questionable actions will cause them to doubt his intentions.  Recurring guest stars this season will include Latin telenovela star Manolo Cardona (“Beverly Hills Chihuahua”) and Michelle Ryan (“Bionic Woman”). COVERT AFFAIRS is shot on location in Toronto, ON, and international shooting locations this season include Medellín, Columbia; Lyon, France; Rome, Italy; Vienna, Austria; Frankfurt, Germany; Copenhagen, Denmark and Taipei, Taiwan.
