Sweet merciful death, may you never again darken TV’s door. Earlier this week we learned that Showtime’s Homeland would chronicle the tender time between presidencies during its tenure in New York, though questions loomed as to that big, bedridden cliffhanger from last year. Fear not, friends, for Homeland Season 6 will indeed have a Friend in Quinn, alive and well.
It’s been some time since Showtime’s Homeland left us on a vague Season 5 end, and promised to return to the United States in Season 6. Fall 2016 itself may be a charged time for the country, and it seems Carrie Mathison will get right back in the middle, as Season 6 eyes the vulnerable time between our elected and outgoing President.
Homeland Season 5 deliberately left us on an ambiguous note regarding Rupert Friend’s fan-favorite Quinn, and news that Carrie would relocate to New York for Season 6 kept up our curiosity. Showtime offered a few cryptic teases, yes, but now seemingly confirms that Rupert Friend will be back for Season 6.
Since leaving behind the Brodys, Showtime seems to have set Homeland on a yearly reboot schedule, first moving to Islamabad, and most recently relocating Carrie to Germany, so where will the international terror drama set up shop in Season 6? Domestically, it turns out, living up to the Homeland name with a move to New York City, and an eye on “many more seasons to come.”
More than ever in 2015, TV deaths fell under tremendous scrutiny from every angle, fans always looking for anything less than an explicit, often gory end. Homeland Season 5 added another late entry to the field with Sunday’s Season finale “A False Glimmer,” pointing one way with a major character’s death, and then seemingly offering some wiggle room, so what really happened?
Whether or not you dedicate your Sunday viewings to Homeland and The Affair, it shouldn’t surprise that Seasons 5 and 2 won’t be the last for either. Showtime has officially renewed both its long-running counter-terrorism drama and the extramarital mind-bender for new 2016 orders.
There’s little skirting the fact that Showtime’s Homeland would occasionally portray various foreign powers in a villainous light, earning potential ire from said countries in the real world. That outrage seems to have spurred some crafty on-set graffiti artists, who managed to sneak in some accusations of racism into the Showtime drama’s latest episode.
The 2015 Emmy Awards have reached their biggest award of the night, and only one can win the statue. Game of Thrones has officially taken home the statue for Outstanding Drama Series, and very surprisingly so.
