Showtime’s Homeland has an intriguing pattern of reinventing itself year after year, and now has at least two more years to do it. In addition to confirming a January premiere for the New York-set Season 6, Showtime officially announces Homeland has been renewed through Season 8.
The fine folk at Honest Trailers rarely get into the TV game (even less often double-dipping), but suffice to say, certain series might take years to make the rotation. No longer, as all the major Emmy 2016 contenders, from The Americans to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt get their own mini trailer parodies!
When Netflix passes, go to Showtime? If Elizabeth Marvel can’t win the presidency on House of Cards, it appears as if Homeland will give her a shot. The actor has officially been called to play the first female President (elect) for Homeland Season 6, depicting the delicate transition of power.
Gee, isn't it nice to not have to wake up at 5:30 A.M. for the 2016 Emmy nominations? Either way, the big announcement is finally here, as presented by black-ish star Anthony Anderson and Gilmore Girls returnee Lauren Graham, so let’s find out what we're all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
Homeland Season 6 had already felt notably topical by the focus on a new President-elect, enough that at least a few topical inclusions were expected. The Showtime drama isn’t looking to make direct commentary, but perhaps not-so-coincidentally will feature a female President-elect, one with a unique relationship to Carrie.
Just when we’d gotten excited for Homeland Season 6 to move to New York City in the fall, Showtime has good and bad news. The sixth run of Claire Danes’ counter-terrorism thriller has been moved to 2017, though a Season 7 and 8 renewal is nearly official.
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.”
