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.
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.
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.
The success of Homeland Season 4's ostensible reboot has us eager to learn if Showtime can pull it off a second time this fall, and the first full trailer for Carrie’s new private life in Germany doesn’t disappoint. There’s explosions, intrigue ,and all-kinds of black-bagging the latest look at Homeland Season 5, and no one is safe.
Agent 47 is a perfect assassin, designed in a lab to kill with ruthless efficiency and accuracy. Mad scientists tweaked his genetics to enhance his toughness and diminish his emotions, because emotions make people weak. In his line of work — murdering people, all day, everyday, for money — it is better not to feel.
The fourth season of Homeland distinctly earned back some of the credit from its first three years of Brody-driven shenanigans, and Season 5's relocation to Eastern Europe similarly seems to shake things up for the better. A new preview for the season offers our most footage yet, while showrunners promise to touch on Putin, ISIS, Charlie Hebdo and more.
When last we saw of Homeland, Carrie Mathison seemed ready to leave the CIA lifestyle behind and concentrate on raising her daughter, but you know what happens to those who think they’re out, right? A new trailer for Homeland Season 5 pulls Carrie right back in, and hands her a sniper rifle, why not?
