It is indeed a happy New Year for the Showtime subscribers as they got an exclusive early access to the premiere of Homeland Season 6 before its official airing on Jan. 15. In fact, two of the show's episodes are now sent to the critics to see the fate of Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend), Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) and the rest of the cast.
The first two episodes of the political thriller television series seem taking away its focus from its alleged terrorist attack-theme and cliffhangers. According to the Hollywood Reporter, it is like leaving its 24-like idea making it have a combination of HBO's acclaimed mini-series, The Night Of. However, as its revealed couple of chapter may look a little moderate compared to its previous episodes, this is because the show is only starting.
Moreover, Homeland Season 6 will be seen to pick up the events from the last season after Carrie prevented the planned terrorist attack in Berlin. She will be now seen living in Brooklyn and working at a foundation that helps the Muslims living in the United States.
Aside from that, the show will also feature the aftermath of the recent U.S. presidential election presenting a new woman president. Its entire 12 episodes are going to highlight the events of the recent Election Day to the inauguration and the happenings of the government's transition. It will also show the anxiety, personal interests, conflicts, influence and conversion of power from the outgoing leader to the new POTUS.
Meanwhile, Variety reported that Showtime has been known for giving its subscribers the first access to its season openers. It is now available the network's streaming service, Showtime on Demand and Showtime Anytime. It also gives its viewers an occasional treat before the show's official launch on YouTube.
However, if they didn't catch the first view, Homeland Season 6 could be watched on its official release on Jan. 15 at 9:00 p.m.
