Showtime has announced that it is bringing back one of its drama series for another season, Deadline.com reports. Coming back for season two is the international thriller "Homeland."
The show, which stars Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, has been a critical success and is Showtime’s highest-rated new series. It was created by "24" veterans Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, the report notes.
The show has had only four airings so far, with 4.4 million viewers watching the premiere on various platforms, according to the piece.
In a statement, Showtime’s entertainment President David Nevins said: “’Homeland’ is just getting started. Clearly, the overall audience growth from week one to week four demonstrates that this show is hitting a nerve in the cultural zeitgeist. Alex and Howard have created a psychological thriller that holds special relevance in the post-9/11 world.”
Production on season two is set to begin in spring.
