Homeland Season 4

On September 23, 2014

By Jessica Leafe

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.
