‘Homeland’ Sets Season 6 Premiere Date, Schedules ‘Billions’ Season 2 Return

Homeland” will return to Showtime for Season 6 on Sunday, January 15 at 9 p.m., Showtime announced during their presentation at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Showtime President and CEO David Nevins also confirmed that “Homeland” had officially been renewed for Season 7 and Season 8, after previously telling reporters that the premium cabler was near a deal for a multi-season renewal in June.

Season 2 of “Billions” will premiere Sunday, February 19 at 10 p.m. Both series are currently in production in New York, marking “Homeland’s” return to the U.S. after two seasons filming on location in South Africa and Berlin.

“Homeland” stars Claire Danes, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham and Mandy Patinkin. 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. Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, “Homeland” was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and is based on the original Israeli series “Prisoners of War” by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa and Gordon, the executive producers for Season 6 will be Chip Johannessen, Patrick Harbinson, Lesli Linka Glatter, Danes, Michael Klick, Raff, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.

Billions” stars Paul Giamatti and Emmy and Damian Lewis as they scorch the earth in a costly war for personal domination. It’s law versus money, with power, sex, and the soul of New York in the balance, as hard-charging U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) squares off against billionaire hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Lewis). Maggie Siff stars as Wendy Rhoades, Chuck’s estranged wife and the top performance coach in the hedge fund world. Malin Akerman plays Lara Axelrod, Axe’s fiercely loyal and street-smart wife. Season 2 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. Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star. “Billions” is created, written and executive produced by showrunners Brian Koppelman and David Levien. The series is also created and executive produced by Andrew Ross Sorkin.
