This political thriller series, based on Israeli Keshet format Prisoners of War, has won six Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series, and is returning to Ten with a fourth season.
The series began in 2011 with Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison, a CIA Intelligence Officer with bipolar disorder who suspects that returned veteran Nicholas Brody, who was previously held captive by al-Qaeda, now poses a threat to the United States. It progresses over the seasons with Brody (played by Emmy winner Damian Lewis) recruited as a double agent and paranoia constantly building around political espionage. At the end of Season 3 Brody is sentenced to a public hanging, and Mathison is now pregnant with his child.
Season 4 is set in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Other characters, including Carrie’s mentor and Middle East Division Chief Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin) are expected to be around more, with Brody family members taking a back seat.
Homeland airs in Australia on Network Ten on Monday 6th October at 9.30pm.
