Showtime’s Homeland pivots into yet another soft reboot in Season 5, this time taking Carrie to Germany via time-jump, and out of the CIA altogether. She certainly won’t be alone however, as the network has cast four new major characters for the season, including a Lord of the Rings alum and a new love interest for Carrie.
Apart from ending on a whimper, few would argue of Homeland’s fourth season that a rebooted focus on Carrie as an international intelligence officer revitalized the Emmy-winner out of its Brody boredom, but will the same hold true of Season 5? The Showtime drama’s producers are apparently planning a major time-jump for the next run, along with literal and figurative changes to Carrie’s landscape.
Showtime's 'Homeland' has been chugging along in its fourth season sans Brody (well, almost), just as critics have continually raved about adultery drama 'The Affair,' and fans of either should have a bright and sunny 2015. Showtime has officially renewed Carrie Mathison and co. to return for a fifth season next year, continuing its illicit 'Affair' for a second season as well.
Now that 'Masters of Sex' and 'Ray Donovan' are winding down their second seasons (don't worry, they'll be back next year), all eyes are on 'Homeland' season 4 to reboot itself and return to Emmy-winning roots with an all-new story. Yet another, even more in-depth trailer for season 4 has arrived, begging the question, can't Corey Stoll be in everything?
Beloved teen angst fest (and starting point for such big time talents as Claire Danes and Jared Leto) 'My So-Called Life' might have been cut short -- like, way short, the series was cancelled after only 19 episodes -- but that hasn't stopped it from enduring as a modern classic that kids still relate to (and, hey, adults do, too). The series turned twenty years old just a few weeks ago, and star Danes didn't let the day go by on unmarked. Well, sort of.
20 years ago, 'My So-Called Life' thrashed and pouted its way onto television screens -- an antidote for the deadly case of the warm and fuzzies we were collectively suffering from all those family sitcoms and all those pleasant lessons they taught us in 30-minute spurts each week. It was a show for everyone: for the angst-ridden and misunderstood teens, for the tweens emerging into what we now call "all of the feels," and for the parents trying to reconcile their struggles with the struggles of their own children. It was the first series to portray teenage life with such brilliant, shaded honesty, that showed us that our youth wasn't disaffected, but deeply, terribly affected. 20 years later, 'My So-Called Life' still resonates; whether you're 28 or 15, you can see yourself painfully reflected in Angela Chase's insecurities and heartaches.
'Homeland' will undergo something of a metamorphosis in its fourth season, shifting from the story of Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) and Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) to a more generalized tale of an intelligence officer in a foreign country. We've seen one trailer to date, but the newest look at 'Homeland' season 4 gives off a much better look at the ensemble, promising a two-hour premiere to remember.
'Homeland' season 4 has a dangerous task ahead of it, and we're not just talking about Carrie's new mission through Afghanistan and Pakistan. This October will see the premiere of Showtime's Emmy-winning drama as it moves beyond the Brody story of seasons 1 through 3, so have a look with the first full trailer, premiere date, and a brand-new poster!
Whether or not you believe Showtime Emmy-winner 'Homeland' lost sight of itself over the last two years, this September will see the Claire Danes counter-terrorism drama back for a fourth season with an all-new conflict. The first tense teaser for 'Homeland' season 4 has arrived, along with a new photo and details on where the cast picks up with a dangerous new threat!
And lo, 'Homeland' season 3 has come to pass, bringing its three-act magic trick to a close with Sunday's "The Star," and finally delivering a long-awaited character death that paves the way for a major reinvention in season 4. Executive producer Alex Gansa made the rounds to confirm Carrie Mathison's season 4 shakeup, including which characters we might see again, and why season 3 finally took its roping plunge.
