Homeland Renewed To Season 8, Billions Season 2, Ray Donovan Season 5
Showtime today announced at it TCA panel that Homeland has been renewed for 2 more seasons on top of the upcoming season 6, as well as announcing Ray Donovan would be returning for Season 5.
Homeland Season 6 sees a return to the US for Carrie, and picks up several months after the attack in Berlin. Now living in Brooklyn, New York, and working for a foundation which provides aid to Muslims living in America. Never one to shy away from the current news cycle, the show will follow the aftermath of a US Presidential election, with the entire season playing out between the election and inauguration.
Homeland will air a little later this time around, moving from October to mid-January 2017 in the US. The show usually runs very close to it’s US air date on Channel 4 in the UK, so we expect to see it in January 2017 here too.
Ray Donovan has also been renewed, meaning it will get a 5th season, which is no great surprise given it’s up for 4 Emmy awards next month. Season 4 of the show, which stars Liev Schreiber as a Hollywood ‘fixer’, is currently airing on Sky Atlantic in the UK on Monday nights at 9pm.
Showtime also announced that Billions Season 2, which see the return of Damian Lewis as hedge fund billionaire Bobby Axelrod, and Paul Giamatti as his nemesis, U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades, would be airing in February 2017, so expect that on Sky Atlantic around the same time as the US (if not simulcast).
