Is Peter Quinn going to die? Is Carrie going to settle for Billionaire paradise? Is Saul still technically a good guy? Are we even done with Germany?
The fifth season of Homeland aired on October 4, 2015 and the debut alone drew over 1.6 million viewers. The final episode aired on the 20th of December 2015 and we got news that Showtime had renewed the TV show for a sixth season which was initially slated for fall 2016. However, weeks ago, Showtime confirmed that the show which always comes alive during the fall season is going to undergo a rescheduling and starting from the sixth season, will begin to air winter.
That sucks but if it makes you feel better, Showtime is nearing a renewal for the seventh and eighth season.
Considering how brilliant the previous season was, this came as a shock to me and if you take a look at the ratings which reflected accurately the brilliance in the fifth season, this tectonic shift isn’t the way to go now. According to IMDB, Homeland has a score of 8.4/10 based on over 224,600 user votes, 265 reviews from viewers, and 115 reviews from critics. According to Metacritic, the fifth season of the drama series has a score of 76 out of 100 based on 17 reviews from critics, whereas the audience rated the fifth series at 7.5 out of 10 basing on 98 user ratings. According to Rotten Tomatoes, “Homeland” illustrates the same indicators. “Homeland” Season 5 has an average score of 8 out of 10 and 87% approval rating based on 33 reviews from critics, while the viewers rated the fifth season at 4.2 out of 5 with a 87% approval rating based on 426 votes.
According to announcements from Claire Danes, Season 6 will begin January 2017 and will cover the transitional period between Election Day and the inauguration, and will lead to a female president been declared winner. Claire said that she does not hint at Hillary Clinton but C’mon.... Everyone wants to see that.
