Clear your Friday night schedules. From Friday 16 February, SBS will exclusively premiere season seven of Homeland in Australia with the series available on SBS and to watch anytime on SBS On Demand.
Starring Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Claire Danes and Emmy® and Tony® winner Mandy Patinkin, the series also stars returning actors Elizabeth Marvel, Linus Roache, Maury Sterling and Jake Weber, and joining the cast this season is acclaimed actor Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire).
Danes stars as CIA officer Carrie Mathison, top in her field despite being bipolar, which makes her volatile and unpredictable. With the help of her long-time mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), Carrie fearlessly risks everything, including her personal well-being and sanity, at every turn.
At the end of season six, following an assassination attempt on her life, President Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) broke her promise to Carrie by arresting 200 members of the intelligence community without bringing charges against them, including Saul Berenson.
In season seven, Carrie has moved back to D.C. to take on the Keane administration and secure the release of the 200 and prove that not all conspiracies are theories.
Homeland is based on the original Israeli series Prisoners of War, which previously aired in Australia on SBS in 2013.
SBS Director of Television and Online Content, Marshall Heald said:
“SBS audiences were captivated by the gripping, emotional Israeli drama that inspired Homeland, so we’re thrilled to bring the penultimate season of this US hit drama to Australian audiences.
“Homeland explores geopolitics, international intrigue and espionage and is a compelling human drama.”
Homeland premieres Friday 16 February at 8.30pm on SBS. Episodes will be available after broadcast anytime, anywhere via SBS On Demand.
