SHOWTIME(R) RELEASES FIRST LOOK AT THE NEW SEASON OF "HOMELAND"
Highly-Anticipated Fifth Season Returns This Fall On Linear, On Demand And Over The Internet
NEW YORK, NY - July 9, 2015 - Hot on the heels of launching its stand-alone streaming service, SHOWTIME is giving viewers a first look at the upcoming fifth season of the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R)-winning drama series HOMELAND. Premiering this fall, the series will pick up two years after Carrie Mathison's (Emmy(R), Screen Actors Guild(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award winner 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. HOMELAND is currently in production in Berlin, and is the first American TV series to shoot entirely in Germany. Season five also stars Emmy nominee Rupert Friend, Oscar(R) winner F. Murray Abraham, Sebastian Koch, Screen Actors Guild winner Miranda Otto, Alexander Fehling, Sarah Sokolovic, and Emmy and Tony(R) winner Mandy Patinkin.
The first look tease for HOMELAND season five will debut on air on SHOWTIME this Sunday, July 12th, during the third season premieres of the critically-acclaimed, hit series RAY DONOVAN and MASTERS OF SEX. To watch and share, go to:
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.
