Creating a compelling narrative from real-world parallels has always been a specialty of the Showtime drama, but this year feels particularly aggressive. Everyone is on edge. Politics have invaded every sphere of society, including the home life, and what really resonates after the first hour
Last season ended in an ominous, cataclysmic fashion, with Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) sacrificing himself to save then president-elect Elizabeth Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) — who then went on an all-out mission to protect herself and root out her would-be assassins. That meant her former ally Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) was frozen out of her White House access, and Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), among others, was behind bars.
When the new season picks up, it’s nearly two months later, and the situation is ever more dire with Keane increasingly paranoid.
Gansa says he was inspired by the headlines coming out of Washington, D.C. and the election of Donald Trump.
“I’m just addicted to MSNBC, Fox and CNN every night,” he says. “Donald Trump didn’t win an Emmy for ‘The Apprentice,’ but

Homeland season 7 release date
Season 7 of Homeland began on Channel 4 on Sunday 18th February. Episodes will now arrive weekly.
In other news, it sounds like season 8 is also a go. Last June came the first reports that the show was given a two-season renewal that is expected to conclude the series' run.
The drama series starring Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin will begin lensing in the Richmond area in the fall for a 2018 debut, Showtime and Fox 21 Television Studios said Tuesday.
“Homeland” showrunner Alex Gansa gave no hints about the storyline for upcoming season in announcing the decision to stay in the U.S., following the New York City setting for Season 6.
“Homeland” revolves around Washington, D.C.-based CIA operatives and alumni engaged in counterterrorism and national security operations. The Virginia setting suggests the show’s storylines will be staying close to home again for the coming season. Season 4 was shot in South Africa while the fifth season was lensed and set in Berlin. The show’s first three seasons were largely shot in North Carolina, which doubled for the D.C. and environs.
