Star World & HD to air s6 of 'Homeland' with U.S. release

MUMBAI: The current geopolitical issues have everyone at the edge of their seats. And even as the world watches with bated breath as events unfold, the brand new season of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning series Homeland brings to life these very events on television. Set to air on Star World and Star World HD from 16 January onwards on the same day as the U.S., Homeland is back with season 6 as it follows Carrie Mathison?s adventures in New York City.

Developed by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, the political thriller is based on the original Israeli series Prisoners of War by Gideon Raff. The show stars Claire Danes, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham, Elizabeth Marvel and Mandy Patinkin among others.

"We were not going to tell a story about a terrorist attack on New York City," said Gansa, "Instead, the season plays with psychological reverberations of the war on terror in the United States. We deal with the threat itself. ?How real is it? How scary is it? How existential is it? Have we overreacted since 9/11? What are we doing, how much are we spending, and what kind of an industry have we built up over domestic counter-terrorism?"

Season 6 picks up several months after Carrie has thwarted the terrorist attack in Berlin and has moved to New York City to provide aid to mistreated Muslims living in the U.S. The sixth season is set during a post-election period with a woman president-elect who seduces the press, spars with the C.I.A. and stirs international political dramas before she even takes office.

Danes added, ?Carrie will always be in the middle. The pace isn?t going to get any slower; the questions aren?t going to get any simpler and the characters aren?t going to get any less complex.?
