Amazon debuts Homecoming teaser starring Julia Roberts
The Amazon Prime Video showcase at San Diego Comic-Con is delivering fresh looks at new and upcoming series for the streaming service and they’ve debuted the first look at Homecoming, the new series from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. Check it out below!
Heidi Bergman is a caseworker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, a Geist Group facility helping soldiers transition back to civilian life. Walter Cruz (Stephan James) is one of these soldiers, eager to begin the next phase of his life. Overseeing Heidi and the facility is Colin Belfast (Bobby Cannavale), an ambitious company man whose manic demands point to questionable motives.
Four years later, Heidi has started a new life, living with her mother (Sissy Spacek) and working as a small-town waitress, when a Department of Defense auditor (Shea Whigham) comes to her with questions about why she left the Homecoming facility. Heidi begins to realize that there’s a whole other story behind the story she’s been telling herself.
Julia Roberts stars in the series alongside Jeremy Allen White, Alex Karpovsky, Dermot Mulroney, Hong Chau, and Sydney Poitier co-star in the series, with Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Brooke Bloom, Ayden Mayeri and Jacob Pitts recurring.
Homecoming premieres on November 2 on Prime Video. The series has already been picked up for a second season.
