News & Interviews for Homeland: Season 5
But for now, at least, Homeland is back with a surprising show of force.
Considering the payoff and potential within these first three episodes, it's time to embrace both Carrie and Homeland like we did at the start.
After some credibility problems in past seasons, Homeland hits the reset button Sunday on Showtime - and it works.
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.
