Homeland Season 5 trailer

The first full-length trailer for Homeland Season 5 begins with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in a good place. She’s got a cushy private job in Berlin, she’s dating a handsome new fellow, and she finally seems to have taken to motherhood. Most importantly, she’s left behind the CIA, the source of her greatest triumphs and tribulations over the years.

… Or so she thought. This is still Homeland we’re talking about, after all. It’s not long before Carrie gets sucked back into a web of international intrigue involving shady government organizations, hackers, black-ops agents, and a rather pissed off Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin). Watch the Homeland Season 5 trailer after the jump.

Showtime premiered the Homeland Season 5 trailer on YouTube.

Homeland Season 5 kicks off Sunday, October 4 at 9PM on Showtime.

Also returning are F. Murray Abraham as Dar Adal and Rupert Friend as Peter Quinn. New characters include Sebastian Koch as Carrie’s billionaire philanthropist boss; Miranda Otto as the CIA’s Berlin station chief; Alexander Fehling as Carrie’s co-worker / boyfriend (who probably has no idea what he’s signed up for, poor fellow); and Sarah Sokolovic as another of Carrie’s colleagues.

HOMELAND season five will pick up two years after Carrie Mathison’s (Claire Danes) ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the “war on terror,” Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working as the head of security for a German philanthropist. Recently nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Drama series, HOMELAND stars Emmy, Screen Actors Guild® and Golden Globe® Award winner Claire Danes, Emmy nominee Rupert Friend, Oscar® winner and Emmy nominee F. Murray Abraham, Sebastian Koch, Screen Actors Guild winner Miranda Otto, Alexander Fehling, Sarah Sokolovic, and Emmy and Tony® winner Mandy Patinkin.
