After exploring the storyline in various other countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan and Europe, the sixth season of political thriller series “Homeland” will be set in New York, US.
As the show is known for taking inspiration from real life events that changed the world, several fans are speculating that Season 6 will be influenced by the events of 9/11 since it is based in US this time.
Though the attack happened years ago, there is a significant chance that the series will deal with issues regarding the incident.
Entertainment Weekly has reported that since Season 6 will be set in New York and there will be a major change in the plot as the previous seasons were set in foreign countries.
At the Television Critics Association press tour, David Nevins, executive producer of the series, talked about the details regarding new setting.
“Homeland will be shot next year in New York City, in and around New York. It will be set domestically. It will be set primarily in the New York area, but not exclusively,” he said.
On the question of why he decided to choose New York as the next setting, Nevins said: “After setting the show in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Europe, we wanted to do another America story. Also, I think the actors will be happy to be back in the U.S. for a year. I don’t think it’s necessarily going to stay there forever, but there was a strong interest in doing a domestic story from the creative team.”
One thing that fans are really looking forward for in Season 6 is the fate of Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend). In the finale of Season 5, Quinn supposedly died. However, it was not made clear whether he had died for sure or not.
Hence, viewers are hoping to see Quinn returning back to the show with next season. Though there has been no such official confirmation, there is undoubtedly a significant possibility of it.
“Homeland” Season 6 will most likely be aired this October on Showtime.
