Homeland renewed for fifth season!

2014-11-12 19:00

Los Angeles - TV spy thriller Homeland has been renewed for a fifth season, premium cable broadcaster Showtime said on Monday, while also announcing a second season for extramarital drama The Affair.

The renewal for Homeland comes despite some lukewarm reactions to the latest series of the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning show, starring Claire Danes as CIA Islamabad station chief Carrie Mathison.

The Affair on the other hand has already won early praise for its portrayal of both sides of an extramarital relationship, with each episode split into parts looking from both perspectives.

Showtime boss David Nevins said the current fourth season of Homeland has "brilliantly reinvented itself," and "continues to capture the attention of a devoted fan base.

The 21:00 show, which is followed on Sunday evenings by The Affair at 22:00 at least for those watching live has "provided an enviable platform for the successful launch of The Affair," he added.

"With thought-provoking, relevant and addictive storylines, both series have been embraced, dissected and much debated week after week."
