Although it wobbled a bit in its third season, Homeland managed to improve on its phenomenal first two seasons with even better fourth and fifth seasons. Now with season six set to debut on January 17th, we have our first look at what’s happening on the show in this trailer from Showtime.
After going across the Atlantic and setting much of the season in Germany, Homeland has returned home and features Carrie Mathison living in Brooklyn, New York. She’s still out of the CIA, this time working for a foundation that helps Muslims living in the US. But there wouldn’t be much of a show if she didn’t end up getting dragged into another massive terrorist web that also has her former colleagues throwing not so vague threats her way.
Homeland becomes the latest trailer to use a slowed down melodramatic cover of a classic song to make their show look more intense. We’ve seen it in Game Of Thrones with “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” by Tears For Fears and 50 Shades Of Grey with “Crazy In Love” by Beyonce. Now it’s “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collins getting the treatment — as if that song wasn’t already dark and brooding enough.
We don’t know what’s in the air tonight for the cast of Homeland, but based on all the pensive eyebrow furrowing and concerned face rubbing going on in the trailer, we’re sure it’s not good.
