Showtime has announced today that new series The Affair was renewed for a second season, while its Golden Globe®-winning hit series Homeland was renewed for a fifth.
Homeland stars Emmy, SAG and Golden Globe Award winner Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison, who continues to fight the war on terror on the front lines while working as Chief of Station at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan, while The Affair is a provocative drama that explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The story (starring Golden Globe nominee Ruth Wilson,SAG Award® nominee Joshua Jackson, Golden Globe nominee Dominic West and Emmy nominee Maura Tierney) is told separately from the male and female perspective and uses distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue.
The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President of Showtime Networks Inc. who said,“In its fourth season, Homeland has brilliantly reinvented itself. It continues to capture the attention of a devoted fan base, and has provided an enviable platform for the successful launch of The Affair,” said Nevins. “With thought-provoking, relevant and addictive storylines, both series have been embraced, dissected and much debated week after week. We’re excited to see more from these complex shows in 2015.”
