FIRST LOOKS

Showtime has released the official trailer for the eighth and final season of Homeland. The new season of the Claire Danes-led drama opens to find her character Carrie Mathison recovering from months of brutal confinement in a Russian gulag, which left her suffering from memory loss — which is a problem for Saul (Mandy Patinkin), now National Security Advisor to the newly ascendant President Warner (Beau Bridges). The top priority of Warner’s young administration is an end to the “forever war” in Afghanistan, and Saul has been dispatched to engage the Taliban in peace negotiations. But Kabul teems with warlords and mercenaries, zealots and spies — and Saul needs the relationships and expertise that only his protégé can provide. Against medical advice, Saul asks Carrie to walk with him into the lion’s den one more time. Maury Sterling, Linus Roache, Costa Ronin, Nimrat Kaur and Numan Acara are also featured among the final season’s cast. “Homeland” will return on Feb. 9.

Hulu has unveiled the official trailer for Season 2 of “Shrill.” The eight-episode second season follows Annie (Aidy Bryant), who after conquering her demons (internal and external), begins to feel pretty good with boyfriend Ryan (Luka Jones) by her side. That is, until she realizes that hastily quitting her job and jumping into a relationship with someone who is, well, a little less career-focused may not have been the best idea.  Executive produced by Lorne Michaels, Elizabeth Banks, Bryant, showrunner Ali Rushfield, Lindy West, Andrew Singer and Max Handelman, “Shrill” Season 2 will premiere on Jan. 24.
