Critic Reviews for Homeland Season 6

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (17)

The end result was a patchy and incoherent story that was salvaged by Lesli Linka Glatter's taut direction of the suspenseful finale.

Apr 11, 2017 | Full Review…

Yup, it's my own fault for getting on board in the first place back in January. Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in, then put me to sleep.

Mar 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The setting suits the downscaled ambitions of the once indispensable, now reliably watchable Showtime series.

Top Critic

The first two episodes promise a contemplative sixth as opposed to a shock-and-awe one. Carrie - I think we can all agree - deserves the breather.

Top Critic

It's a solid enough re-start to a series that Showtime already has renewed for two more seasons beyond this one.

Jan 12, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…
Top Critic

Season six may work as escapism if nothing else.

Dec 28, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Obama's political struggles give way to the debauchery of the Trump era. To a White House that looks more Veep than Homeland. Stranger than fiction. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

This season was so on the money and of the moment one wondered if it had been written by clairvoyants.

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Still, I enjoy the slow scene-setting and anticipate that Homeland's tales of a terror-besieged state will be necessary escapism as we succumb to the coming darkness. It's the calm before the stupid, basically.

Mar 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Suddenly the show's vision of the intelligence community and the administration it answers to looks like something out of 'The West Wing.'

Feb 1, 2017 | Full Review…

When Abraham and Patinkin are having dark conspiratorial discussions about history and doom, count me in. Otherwise, my mind is wandering.

Jan 31, 2017 | Full Review…

Unlike previous seasons, there is a sense that the characters have begun to reap what they have sown.

Audience Reviews for Homeland: Season 6

  • Nov 01, 2020
    I'm definitely not okay with the finale, which they could make it way more reasonable and impressive. I'm especially not okay with how they decided the storyline of peter quinn. It's hurtful and egregious and will not make up for their poorly-developed plot.
  • Nov 01, 2020
    Nicht alle Aspekte des Deals mit diesem Unternehmen sind ideal
  • Sep 21, 2020
    Homeland was excellent being about spies, it turned into a poor man's House of Card, poorly written.
  • Jul 03, 2020
    Love the show, but this season was awful.
  • May 06, 2020
    Underrated season- one of Homeland's best
  • May 05, 2020
    Homeland is one of those shows that makes people think about everything that goes on around the world, related not only to CIA, GRU, ISI, but most importantly it teaches you to put things into perspective and not judge people directly. Everyone has their reasons and their causes for behaving in certain ways, but the most important thing is being able to realize that people think differently for many reasons. It is not the worst, it's what makes us human in the first place. This show is about putting yourself in someone else's shoes. It sounds cliché, but it might save the day, the month, the year or the world! Regarding the show, the actors are amazing. Don't stop watching after season 3.
  • Apr 29, 2020
    Not perfect but still a very good show
  • Apr 26, 2020
    typical series about cia/fbi stuff between us vs russia
  • Apr 25, 2020
    Watchable but lackluster. Always in the shadow of that spectacular first season.
  • Apr 07, 2020
    Definitely a difference from the previous seasons, writing is now average. Same tired, retread plotlines that populate network TV.
