AceShowbiz - Now fans know when "Homeland" will return for season 7. The Emmy-winning series is set to premiere its highly-anticipated season 7 on February 11, 2018, at 8 P.M. on Showtime. Stars Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin, Elizabeth Marvel and Linus Roache are among the returning cast members.
Alongside the premiere date announcement, Showtime has dropped the first trailer of the upcoming season of the thriller series. The trailer shows the aftermath of the last season, which featured an assassination attempt on President Keane (Marvel).
It's revealed that the president breaks her promise to Carrie Mathison (Danes) by arresting 200 members of the intelligence community. As the season begins, Carrie has left her job in the White House and moved back to D.C. and is living with her sister Maggie (Amy Hargreaves) to take on the Keane administration and secure the release of the 200.
Brett O'Keefe (Jake Weber), meanwhile, is seen aiming a pistol at a poster of the civil rights-abusing president's face. "The founding fathers foresaw the dark day when we would face a president like her," he warns. "Anyone who takes a stand for what they believe, people are gonna say they're crazy. They've been calling me that for years."
Elsewhere in trailer, Mathison is surprised by the fact that Saul Berenson (Patinkin) has been tapped as National Security Advisor. Keane, meanwhile, finds herself under investigation, saying, "How is that they tried to assassinate me and I'm the one under investigation?"
Newcomer Morgan Spector joins the cast for the upcoming season. "Homeland" is based on the original Israeli series "Prisoners of War" by Gideon Raff, with the American version being developed by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon. Chip Johannessen, Lesli Linka Glatter, Patrick Harbinson, Claire Danes, Michael Klick, Ron Nyswaner, Gideon Raff, Avi Nir and Ran Telem executive produce alongside Gansa and Gordon, while Fox 21 Television Studios produces.
