Emmy-Award-winning US thriller Homeland is hugely popular - when its first series aired on US channel Showtime in 2011, it became the channel's highest-rated drama premiere in eight years.
Based on the Israeli series Prisoners of War, the crime drama follows Carrie Mathison, a CIA officer with bipolar disorder who believes that US Marine Corps Sniper Nicholas Brody is a spy for al-Qaeda. The drama has progressed a lot since that original premise over six series. And there’s more in store for the thriller. The seventh series will air in 2018.
