The fifth season of Showtime’s mystery/drama Homeland is slated to premiere on Sunday, October 4th At 9 p.m. ET/PT. The show, produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, is based on the original Israeli series “Prisoners of War” by writer/producer Gideon Raff. The series stars Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin, and Rupert Friend, and has been awarded five Golden Globes.
“Homeland season five will pick up two years after Carrie Mathison’s (played by Claire Danes) ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the “war on terror,” Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working as the head of security for a German philanthropist.”
Showtime also recently announced the second season of The Affair will premiere following Homeland at 10 p.m. ET/PT on October 4th.
Earlier this month, Showtime launched their over-the-top SHOWTIME service that streams programming to any subscriber with broadband. The service costs $10.99 per month on Apple TV, Roku, and PlayStation Vue, or $8.99 per month with a Hulu Plus subscription.
