(from Showtime's press release, February 2017) Season six of the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning hit drama series HOMELAND, returns to U.S. soil after spending the last two seasons shooting abroad in South Africa and Berlin. Set in New York, HOMELAND stars Emmy, Screen Actors Guild(R) and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes, Emmy nominee Rupert Friend, acclaimed stage and screen actress Elizabeth Marvel, Oscar(R)-winner with Emmy nominee F. Murray Abraham, and Emmy and Tony(R) Award winner Mandy Patinkin. After she thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, season six picks up several months later and finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) 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. Guest stars this season include Hill Harper (Limitless), Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Patrick Sabongui (The Flash) and Dominic Fumusa (NURSE JACKIE). Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, HOMELAND was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and is based on the original Israeli series Prisoners of War by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa and Gordon, the executive producers for Season 6 include Chip Johannessen, Lesli Linka Glatter, Michael Klick, Patrick Harbinson, Claire Danes, Avi Nir, Gideon Raff, and Ran Telem. Renewed through season eight and ranked as the network's No. 1 drama, HOMELAND averaged six million total viewers across platforms in its fifth season.
