Tv Season Info

The game has changed for Carrie Mathison. Out of the CIA and living in Berlin, Carrie is trying to start a new life but realizes now she’s the one with a target on her back. As the danger intensifies, and without Saul and Quinn to rely on, one thing becomes clear – she’s never been at greater risk or with more to lose. -- (C) SHOWTIME

Season 5, which picks up more than two years after last season's boom-clap climax and measured denouement, offers neither the candy-hued crazy of Season 3 nor the tightly plotted thrills of Season 4, but rather something more ruminative and sedate.

What gives Homeland its unsettling edge is the sense that it's pitching you into the dark corners of an endless secret war liable to erupt into bloody chaos at any moment, on a battlefield which is beyond anybody's control.
