Enigma was the third film in the Jane Bond series, and the first of a two-part film event to conclude the first story arc. The franchise takes the place of the long-standing James Bond series.
Gillian Anderson plays the leading character, Agent Jane Bond 007 of MI6. She has no relation to the character James Bond as he does not exist in this franchise's universe.
Enigma was confirmed to be a two-part film event in the post-credits sequence of the previous film. Sofia Coppola was confirmed as returning to direct after Lynne Ramsay declined the opportunity. It was confirmed that Shonda Rhimes would also return to work alongside Jane Goldman on the script.
Betrayed, disgraced and traumatised, Jane Bond lives in seclusion with her husband in the English countryside, haunted by her past. But with Enigma looming, she is called back into action by her old friend Moneypenny, determined to take down Katriana and her army once and for all.
