“The last time they tried to overthrow the goverment was never.”
Homeland Season 7 finally has a UK TV air date, and Carrie and co. are returning to our screens sooner than you might think. That’s not the only thing surprising about Showtime’s spy thriller, which follows the efforts of CIA agents Carrie (Claire Danes) and Saul (Mandy Patinkin) to protect the USA from threats foreign and domestic. As Donald Trump enters his second year in office as President, you might think that the political drama would struggle to keep up with events, but Season 6 was a resounding reminder of how sharp the series’ writing can be.
“Gripping, provocative and deceptively topical, Homeland’s sixth season is as relevant and entertaining as ever,” we wrote in our review of the sixth run, which is now available on Netflix UK to catch up.
Season 7 picks up after the shocking end to Season 6, as President Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) continues her imperious reign in the White House. Carrie, meanwhile, has left her job and moved back to D.C. and is living with her sister, Maggie (Amy Hargreaves), but she is wasting no time in working to take on the Keane administration and secure the release of several hundred prisoners.
Season 7 kicks off on Channel 4 at 9pm on Sunday 18th February, with new episodes then arriving weekly. Episodes will be available on All 4 to catch up following their broadcast for 30 days.
