We don't have to wait to see what sort of trouble Claire Danes' Carrie gets into on HOMELAND's season 6 because Showtime has made the first episode available online. The HOMELAND premiere is set for Sunday, January 15 but Showtime subscribers can get it first on streaming and on-demand platforms. Happy New Year to us.
Carrie is back, and out of the espionage business, but she's seeking out trouble protecting American Muslims against the United States government. It's several months after thwarting a terrorist attack in Berlin. Carrie and her daughter are living in New York where she's working to provide aid to Muslims living in the U.S. Returning favorites include F. Murray Abraham, Mandy Patinkin who seems to be kidnapped once again and Rupert Friend as Quinn who seems to be alive after all hope is lost after seeing him in a vegetative state last season.
Season 6 looks to be ripe with social commentary on the current political state of affairs but sadly we don't have a female president as the show will reflect this year, but we do know the incoming U.S. President (Elizabeth Marvel) will be causing trouble for the CIA.
I, for one, can't wait until January 15 so the first thing I'll do on New Years Day will be streaming the HOMELAND season 6 premiere, and catching up on THE AFFAIR.
