Homeland officially returns on January 15 with season six of the intelligence thriller, but fans were delighted to learn that they can watch the premiere online, ahead of its scheduled premiere. I’m not a fan of spoilers, in this day and age, we watch tv (or consume content to be technical) on our own schedules, but based on the widely watched trailer, here are a few thoughts
What we know about Season 6 from the trailer:
1. The show was set Stateside for the first time (as opposed to only featuring the CIA in suburban Washington DC
2. Quinn lives.
3. Carey’s mission has changed, but she’s still a save- the-world, change the system from the inside, passionate yet stubborn former Agency employee we’ve known, loved, and despised over the last few years.
4. The show doesn’t have a shortage of bad-guys or perceived ones at that. Perspective is one thing, but there’s plenty of real world events on which to base material.
5. There’s a new boss in town, she’s got ominous motives and may have mislead voters, she’s not wildly popular with the intelligence community, she’s a she. Two out of three characteristics sound very familiar.
