Homeland and Billions will both return to Showtime in the winter!
The Claire Danes thriller is set to return for a sixth season on January 15 while the Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti series will have its season two premiere on February 19.
Here is the official synopsis for season six of Homeland: “After she thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, season 6 picks up several months later and finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) back on American soil, living in Brooklyn, New York. She has begun working at a foundation whose efforts are to provide aid to Muslims living in the U.S. Season six will tackle the after effects of the U.S. presidential election, with the entire season taking place between election day and the inauguration. It’s a strange, transitional time in the halls of government filled with anxiety and different competing interests, where a very fragile and complex transfer of power takes place between the outgoing president and the incoming president-elect.”
Billions‘ second season has a much shorter synopsis: “Season two finds the characters vying for control in a changing world that presents an existential threat. For all of them, it’s a choice between evolution and extinction.”
