There has been a lot of buzz going around Taylor Sheridan’s new series Special Ops: Lioness. This new Paramount+ series boasts some big stars like Nicole Kidman, Zoe Saldaña, and Morgan Freeman. However, this is a unique story with a lot of suspense and action that promises to entertain fans.

What is this new series all about?

Yellowstone fans may be waiting for Taylor Sheridan to write the final series episodes, and perhaps mend fences with Kevin Costner. However, these same fans who love this series may want to check out Special Ops: Lioness. Here is a series that promises great storytelling and a lot of action. What is it all about?

According to Vanity Fair, this series is based on the real-life CIA program called Lioness. Women infiltrate terrorist organizations by getting close to family members of their top targets.

Nicole Kidman succinctly explained why this show is different. “There’s power in having a female identity. They have access in a different way than a lot of men who are working undercover do.”

This means that one day, the women on this team wear combat gear while doing their drills and military duties. Then, at night, they are out clubbing in heels and tight clothes.

Yet, in no way is this series about women being better than men. Saldaña explained, “Not a single episode talks about women versus men and how women do it better.” Men and women work together on a common goal. They want to stop terrorist organizations.
