Like a great many series, Homeland found itself unexpectedly topical in Season 6 with homegrown insurgency and the challenges facing a female President. Now, Season 7 has three new regulars to play with, including Season 6’s Alex Jones analogue.
It’s a brave new world for the 2017 Emmy awards with Game of Thrones and others sitting this year out. The big announcement is finally here, as presented by Veep star Anna Chlumsky and Criminal Minds veteran Shemar Moore, so let’s find out what we’re all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
Showtime’s Homeland smartly moved beyond the Brody years with a string of international settings, but may be staying put once more. After a New York homecoming in Season 6, Season 7 is confirmed to move to Virginia, also announcing its return cast.
Homeland came to a quieter close than usual this year (kind of hard to top the real-life political circus), but with it, the Showtime drama seemingly said goodbye to one of its own … again. This time around, said star at least confirms the character gave their life, and reflects on the big shakeup in Season 6.
Even as Homeland largely sat out 2016, the series’ future is at least assured through Season 8; likely 2019 overall. There’s no telling what political landscape the series might have to reflect by then, but showrunner Alex Gansa thinks the next two seasons will likely prove the final, getting Carrie back to work as an Intelligence offer.
Homeland fans with Showtime subscriptions have likely checked out the Season 6 premiere, in which a certain character’s fate is rather quickly revealed. Now, ahead of the official premiere, showrunners and stars explain why [SPOILER] is still kicking, and what it means for the series overall.
Homeland made waves with the news that Season 6 would bypass 2016 altogether, but it seems Carrie & co. found a way to sneak us some early intel. Watch the full January premiere right now, find out what happened to Quinn, and see what brings Homeland Season 6 to New York City!
Showtime’s Homeland has always drawn from real-world events to inform its counter-terrorism narrative, though Season 5's efforts to shift focus from Middle-Eastern countries to Europe grew especially topical in the wake of 2015's Paris attacks. Now, Season 6 producers explain that the New York relocation will shy away from terrorist acts or cells altogether, instead focusing on “do-it-yourself” threats.
If ever you thought that Homeland Season 6 might prove less topical by its election of a female President, think again. The delicate transition of power is on full display in the first full trailer, featuring the threat of homegrown terrorism and our first hint of Quinn in the new footage.
