Fall TV Preview
Homeland Season 5 Premiere Date

Homeland Season 5, Affair Season 2 Get October Premiere Date

Showtime has set a Sunday, Oct. 4 premiere date for the new seasons of Homeland and The Affair.

Homeland‘s Season 5 opener will air at 9/8c, leading into The Affair‘s sophomore premiere at 10.

Homeland will pick up two years after Carrie Mathison’s ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the “war on terror,” Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working as the head of security for a German philanthropist.

In addition to frontwoman Claire Danes, Season 5 stars Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham, Sebastian Koch, Miranda Otto, Alexander Fehling, Sarah Sokolovic and Mandy Patinkin.

The Affair meanwhile will continue to explore the emotional and psychological effects of an indiscretion that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. This season, the drama will be told separately from four different perspectives, revealing four distinct truths.

    Oh come on. As if it didn’t get old halfway through season 1 we now have to suffer through 4 viewpoints?

    Will they even explain what’s going on with the conflicting memories this time around?

    Jesus Christ, four viewpoints?

    wouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be the last season of homeland, a lot of viewers might have jumped ship after last year’s terrible finale.
