    The 6th season begins on Sunday January 15.



    Register or to view Spoiler content!

    Basic plot of the upcoming season: Season 6 picks up several months after Carrie Mathison thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin and is back in the U.S., living in Brooklyn. She has begun working at a foundation whose efforts are to provide aid to Muslims living in the U.S. In a real-life parallel, the sixth season 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 competing interests, where a very fragile and complex transfer of power takes place between the outgoing president and the incoming president-elect.

    Guest stars this season include Hill Harper (Limitless), Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Patrick Sabongui (The Flash) and Dominic Fumusa (Nurse Jackie).

    This looks awesome. I can't wait for the new season to begin. But I will probably collect the episodes this time, I can't watch just 1 ep. per week, it's too hard!

    A bit of a lack lustre series for me and Carrie is quite annoying at times

    Didnt like the ending, RIP Peter Quinn, you will be missed, still loving Saul and Dar Adal

    I see Claire Danes is now an Exec producer, not a good thing in my book, (Larry Hagman and Power in Dallas as my example! - it went downhill)

    I liked most of the season with the conspiracy within. The season ending was heartbreaking.

    But as long as Saul is still around.... he brings the heart to the show.

    oh I agree, he is such a charismatic actor, id love to see him on Broadway stage

    Carrie /Claire over acts and hams it up at times, her chin trembling when looking at Quinns photos reminded me of eyes a rollin, lips a tremblin early Sue Ellen on Dallas lol

    not quite sure what game madam president is playing at the end!

    I watched the whole season over the Easter weekend. Loved it all. I suspect this season plays better watching it all together rather than week by week. Danes was as mesmerising as ever. Carrie going through Quinn's pictures nearly killed me. A great pay off to the last 3 seasons which have been the show's best IMO.

    this is the first season Ive watched in real time so to speak ie an epiosde a week
    I bought the box sets before and binge watched which i think i preferred with Homeland
    I see the box set isnt out here til ?? July according to Amazon

    I still think its lacks something wthout Damien Lewis - have really enjoyed S1, 2, 4 and 5
    3 and 6 less so but will definitely watch S6 again - but as a binge watch

    I must say that I honestly don't miss Brody (Damien Lewis) one bit on Homeland. I don't think the show could have lasted successfully this long if they didn't move to different locations and brought in new cast members for one season only.
    Something about Homeland that feels like they only need Carrie and Saul - and guest appearances by people like Max and Dar Adal.

    PS: Still annoyed that Mandy Patinkin wasn't Emmy nominated for season 4 (when Saul was kidnapped by terrorists and wanted to die).

    I bingewatched the sixth season last week and while it wasn't bad at all, I must say, I didn't enjoy it as much as the previous two (but those were outstanding, so it's hard to come up with something like that again). It was just all a little bit too tedious at times and I didn't like the whole Franny stuff very much and I hated that fake news guy. The politics surrounding the new President and Iran/Israel was very interesting though and Mandy Patinkin was yet again incredible. He's by far the best part of the show.

    It's strange how Homeland seems to tell us that Carrie is a good mother. Cause from what I've seen, I don't think she is. She's far too egoistic and borderline sociopath. Obsessed with her work, and I don't know how many times by now that Franny has been in danger or shoved away to the nanny. :lol:

    It would have been better if Carrie had given up the kid to her sister. Both for the kid - but also for the TV series.

    New season, same setting. The President seems like a real witch, I find myself suddenly rooting for O'Keefe the vlog guy. Or?

    I better keep on rooting for Saul and Max. Too bad there's no Peter.

    Im looking forwards to the start of this in UK although I dont know when it starts to be honest

    I am so sorry Peter Quinn will not be in it, I really liked him. And didnt Saul end up in Prison at end of last series?

    I hope Carrie is less annoying this season and less mouth a quivering, lips a tremblin school of acting

    I could watch Mandy Patinkin read out of the phone book and love F Murray Abraham too

    We get the new episodes 18 hours after they are broadcasted in the US. I love it. :D

    I think and hope that Mandy Patinkin will be on until the series finale. Last season will be the one after this current one. He just seem too important to let go. It's him & Claire Danes.
