Season 6 of CIA drama “Homeland” will air in September this year, according to IMDB. It will also be set in the US, in New York city, as noted by Entertainment Weekly (EW) after Season 5 saw the characters chasing terrorists in Berlin, Germany. Earlier, there have been entire missions to the Middle East, specifically in Pakistan. So, a return to US soil seems refreshing.
Showtime President David Nevins told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena last year that Homeland “will be set domestically. It will be set primarily in the New York area, but not exclusively.”
Nevins told EW “[After setting the show in] Afghanistan, Pakistan and Europe, [we] wanted to do another America story. Also, I think the actors will be happy to be back in the US for a year. I don’t think it’s necessarily going to stay there forever, but there was a strong interest in doing a domestic story from the creative team.”
As reported by EW, Showtime producer Gary Levine talked about Carrie’s (Claire Danes) colleague and former love interest, Quinn (Rupert Friend). “Quinn is severely damaged. There is no question about it. The life or death question remains. But if he should live, it will not be in any way, shape or form the way he has lived to date,” Levine said. So Quinn, even if he returns to Season 6 of “Homeland,” he will not be the same person anymore.
Ecumenical News says that Carrie Mathison may find herself working with the daughter of Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis), Dana (Morgan Frances Saylor). This possibility was teased by “Homeland” co-creator Alex Gansa in an interview with Los Angeles Times (LA Times).
“You know, I don’t think about Dana, but I think about Morgan Saylor a lot. I wonder what she’s up to because she’s a great actress. I’m still interested in the Brody family, though. I know they caused grimaces across the Internet … What if she became a CIA officer, right? That would be so interesting,” Gansa told LA Times. However, it’s just a speculation at this point since nothing of that nature has been confirmed yet.
