It looks like the coming "Homeland" Season 6 will be action packed featuring a lot of intense episodes with its new female president played by Elizabeth Marvel. Showtime dropped the show's new trailer and gave a glimpse of the imminent battle of power between the newly elected POTUS and the CIA.
The fight between the most influential bodies in the U.S. might affect the return of Carrie (Claire Danes) in the country to help the Muslim-American community in "Homeland" Season 6. According to NY Daily News, she aims to help a young man who ends up in jail after he is politically charged for posting YouTube videos.
"Homeland" Season 6 will also feature the spreading home-grown terrorism in New York City. It is, too, going to cover the happenings between the U.S. election in November and the inauguration in January. Fans will also witness Saul (Mandy Patinkin) and Dar (F. Murray Abraham) going head-to-head displaying their power of intelligence. Of course, the fan favorite Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) back on his feet in "Homeland" Season 6.
Meanwhile, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the show's showrunner Alex Gansa teased that "Homeland" Season 6 is about to change its gears, focus and will tell a different kind of story. He, too, cleared that the program has a responsibility not to show wider terrorist plots that are not true.
Gansa further noted that they wanted to avoid overdramatizing any threats that don't in the U.S. and New York specifically. Further explaining that theme of "Homeland" Season 6, the showrunner said that won't make it look like there are terrorist communities in the country since their intelligence officers have said that there are none. Gansa also promised that the new season won't feature apocalyptic terrorist attacks that will scare a lot of people. "Homeland" Season 6 is about to launch on Jan. 15 at 9:00 p.m. on Showtime.
