Plot Synopsis

Based on the series of TRANSPORTER theatrical films, this one-hour action series centers on Frank Martin, a professional transporter and former Special Forces operative, who is paid to pick up and deliver people or cargo from anywhere in the world. Frank is the very best at what he does and handles only the most difficult dangerous and assignments. Whether he's getting incriminating information against a dirty CIA agent for an army buddy or fending off hired thugs from a fuel company while he races to deliver an engine prototype, Frank follows three simple rules:
1. Never change the deal.
2. No names.
3. Never open the package.
TNT aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back episodes. On Saturday, November 22, 2014 from 9-11pm ET/PT, TNT debuted the final two episodes of Season 1. In the night's first episode, "Give the Guy a Hand," Frank finds himself on the wrong side of the law in one final North American job, as he's jailed for a murder he didn't commit. But after a series of extremely odd coincidences, Frank realizes he's been framed, and that his time in jail was part of an elaborate plot to smuggle a bizarre symbol of power from out of the prison walls. Once out, Frank must find the men who set him up, and prevent an imminent gang war. Then, in the season ender, "Cherchez La Femme," Frank must deliver a million euros to the south of France in a race against two elite couriers: the client whose Transporter wins will get a valuable missile contract. Other gangs learn about this race, and try to steal all the money for themselves, and Frank has to prove his skills as the only real Transporter in the business. As the chaos mounts, Frank's shadowed by the mysterious Juliette, who wants to know a great deal about the world of the Transporter. One week after it's first season finale, TNT aired the U.S. premiere of Season 2 of TRANSPORTER: THE SERIES. In the season opener, "2B or Not 2B," Frank tries to protect a 12-year-old boy who witnessed the murder of his father, an Italian judge, and safely deliver the boy to court to testify.
On Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 9-11pm ET/PT, TNT aired the Season 2 finale of TRANSPORTER: THE SERIES, showing back-to-back episodes. In the night's first episode, "Beacon of Hope," Frank and Caterina are hired to rescue a wounded aid worker from a warlord in Mauritania. Caterina actually has a history with the aid worker, so this mission is particularly personal for her. As the warlord and his men try to hunt the group down, Frank must use all his skills and resourcefulness to get them safely to the Moroccan border. Then, in the season ender, "End Game," in order to save the life of Zara (guest star Elyse Levesque), a woman he once loved, Frank is coerced into trying to procure a cyber bomb powerful enough to destroy an entire country's infrastructure. Certain they're being set up, Caterina refuses to go along with the job and quits in protest. But as Frank prepares once again to face off against the deadly Bernard Dassin (guest star Dhaffer L'Abidine), Caterina makes a discovery that could potentially to turn Frank's world upside down.
