Homeland Season 6 Featurette and Poster
Showtime has released a new Homeland Season 6 featurette, in which the cast discusses filming in New York and what’s in store for their characters in the all-new episodes. Check it out below along with a new poster in the gallery, and don’t miss new episodes starting Sunday January 15 at 9pm ET/PT.
Season 6 is currently in production in New York, after spending the last two seasons shooting abroad in South Africa and Berlin. Homeland stars Emmy, Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes, Emmy nominee Rupert Friend, Oscar winner and Emmy nominee F. Murray Abraham, acclaimed stage and screen actress Elizabeth Marvel and Emmy and Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin.
After she thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, season six picks up several months later and finds Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) back on American soil, living in Brooklyn, New York. She has begun working at a foundation whose efforts are to provide aid to Muslims living in the U.S. Season six will tackle the after effects of the U.S. presidential election, with the entire season taking place between election day and the inauguration. It’s a strange, transitional time in the halls of government filled with anxiety and different competing interests, where a very fragile and complex transfer of power takes place between the outgoing president and the incoming president-elect.
Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, Homeland was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and is based on the original Israeli series Prisoners of War by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa and Gordon, the executive producers for season six will be Chip Johannessen, Lesli Linka Glatter, Michael Klick, Patrick Harbinson, Claire Danes, Gideon Raff, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.
