“We are proud that HOMELAND has been so consistently recognized for its excellence with awards and critical acclaim, but we are in awe of how the series fearlessly mines the geopolitics of our complicated world and translates that into compelling human drama,” David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc, said. “Under Alex Gansa’s brilliant leadership, HOMELAND has shown an uncanny ability to reinvent itself which makes us supremely confident that this show will remain as distinctive, relevant and cutting edge as anything on television for as long as these producers want to continue.”
