Hot on the heels of launching its stand-alone streaming service, SHOWTIME is giving viewers a first look at the upcoming fifth season of the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning drama series HOMELAND.
Premiering this fall, the series will pick up two years after Carrie Mathison’s (Emmy®, Screen Actors Guild® and Golden Globe® Award winner Claire Danes) ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the “war on terror,” Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working as the head of security for a German philanthropist.
HOMELAND is currently in production in Berlin, and is the first American TV series to shoot entirely in Germany. Season five also stars Emmy nominee Rupert Friend, Oscar® winner F. Murray Abraham, Sebastian Koch, Screen Actors Guild winner Miranda Otto, Alexander Fehling, Sarah Sokolovic, and Emmy and Tony® winner Mandy Patinkin.
Like most teasers, Homeland’s first for season five doesn’t offer us much to go on except that Saul and Carrie have an argument, which isn’t really new for them, but Saul says what most people have been thinking about Carrie, “You’re being naive and stupid.” Now with Carrie out of the CIA, there’s a lot more story available, but I really hope they let that whole Carrie/Quinn relationship fall to the wayside.
The Homeland first look will debut on Sunday July 12th, during the premieres of Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex.
