According to the official press release from EPIX, this is the synopsis for the show’s second season:

"Season two of Condor finds Joe Turner still wandering around Europe, careful not to stay in any one place long enough to put down roots or be a danger to anyone he meets. But while Joe is busy avoiding his past, it catches up with him in the form of a mysterious Russian intelligence officer who claims to be an asset working for Joe’s Uncle Bob.The officer’s life is in danger and he’s willing to trade the identity of a Russian mole in the CIA for safe passage. Joe is reluctant to help –he wants nothing to do with the CIA –but events back home compel Joe to take action and force him to face the life he thought he’d left behind."
