Homeland will return to the United States and it looks like the show is sticking around for at least 3 more seasons but don’t expect new episodes this year….
Carrie Mathison is coming home and then she’s sticking around for quite some time.
Showtime recently announced that they are nearing a renewal for Homeland for seasons 7 and season 8 ahead of the sixth season, which was already renewed earlier this year.
The popular series has enjoyed a surge of storytelling and popularity over the last two years and now Homeland will look to expand even further with at least three more seasons on the books at Showtime.
Now the only downside of the two season renewal is that Showtime is shifting Homeland to debut in January 2017 instead of the normal fall slot when the show typically would premiere around September or October.
When Homeland does return, the show will once again be set in the United States — this time taking place in New York just after the election of a new president, but before the new Commander in Chief takes office.
“There is this strange period in America where there are 72 days when it’s not exactly clear who’s in charge, and there is a new president that needs to be educated on what it means to be president,” executive producer Alex Gansa recently said.
“That is a very complex transfer of power filled with all kinds of anxiety and different competing interests. It’s a dangerous time in our democracy.”
Homeland was based in Germany last season with a huge cliffhanger involving Quinn’s fate at the end of the season and now it appears fans of the show will have to wait until at least January to find out what happened.
But the good news is Homeland will be sticking around for several more seasons now that Showtime has renewed the series ahead of the season six debut.
