‘Homeland’ Shifts Premiere Date, Locale for Season Six

Showtime’s award-winning Homeland will go from a fall to a winter premiere when season six debuts in January 2017.

The hit drama is scheduled to begin production in New York this August, marking the series’ stateside return after having shot season sour in South Africa and season five in Berlin. Claire Danes, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham and Mandy Patinkin will reprise their starring roles.

Season aix picks up several months after Carrie Mathison (Danes) helped thwart a terrorist attack in Berlin. She now lives in Brooklyn, NY, working for a foundation that provides aid to Muslims living in the United States. Season six will deal with the ramifications of the U.S. presidential election, including the complicated transfer of presidential power. The entire season occurs between election day and the inauguration.
