Showtime today released a video clip containing the first footage from season six of its acclaimed drama series “Homeland,” which is set to premiere Sunday, Jan. 15.
“Season six is currently in production in New York, after spending the last two seasons shooting abroad in South Africa and Berlin,” Showtime noted in its announcement.
The series stars Emmy, Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes, Emmy nominee Rupert Friend, acclaimed stage and screen actress Elizabeth Marvel, Oscar winner and Emmy nominee F. Murray Abraham, and Emmy and Tony Award winner Mandy Patinkin.
Showtime adds: “After she thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, season six picks up several months later and finds Carrie Mathison (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.”
