Morgan Freeman was notably absent from the Special Ops: Lioness press trip to the United Kingdom, leaving his co-stars Zoe Saldana and Nicole Kidman to handle the Paramount+ series’ promotion on their own.

His absence was attributed to developing a fever before the trip, and his physicians advised against his attendance due to a potentially contagious infection.

Special Ops: Lioness is inspired by a real-life CIA program and revolves around Marine Joe (portrayed by Zoe), who navigates her personal and professional life as a pivotal figure in the CIA’s efforts against terrorism.

In the series, Kidman portrays senior CIA supervisor Kaitlyn Meade, who teams up with Marine Raider Cruz (played by De Oliveira) on an undercover mission to prevent another 9/11.

Renowned for his contributions to the Yellowstone universe, such as the historical series like 1883 and 1923, creator Taylor Sheridan ventures into new territory with Special Ops: Lioness. This fresh offering promises a departure from his previous works and is certainly worth tuning in for.

The series is set to debut on the streaming platform Paramount+ on July 23, with episodes scheduled for weekly release throughout the season. Our thoughts are with Morgan Freeman, and we wish him a speedy recovery from any health issues he may be facing.
