Homeland

Loyalty has always been a major theme on Homeland. The entire premise of Season 1 was Carrie (Claire Danes) and Saul (Mandy Patinkin) trying to suss out just whom Brody (Damian Lewis) was working for. Things got more complicated still for Brody in Season 2, what with all the double- and triple-crossing. Now, in Season 3, it may be Carrie’s turn to pick a side once and for all.

Showtime has revealed another teaser and a new set of posters from the next season of Homeland. The new tagline, “Pledge Allegiance,” suggests that our main characters will have to take a stand — and, judging by the somber expressions on their faces, that it won’t be easy for any of them. Hit the jump to check them out. (Spoilers for Season 2 ahead.)

‘Homeland’ Season 3 Trailer: Everybody Hurts

Homeland Season 3

The very first teaser for Homeland‘s third season hinted at a gritty thriller, as cryptic radio signals offered clues to Nicholas Brody’s current situation. The first full-length trailer for the show, however, gets far more emotional. And yes, there’s actual footage this time around, if still not a whole lot of dialogue. Check it out after the jump. (Obviously, there are major spoilers for Season 2 up ahead.)

Masters of Sex

Into a TV landscape littered with antiheroic morality tales and Scandinavian crime dramas, Showtime is introducing something a little different with Masters of Sex.

Michael Sheen stars as William Masters, a real-life sex researcher whose pioneering work still serves as the basis for much of what we know about sex today. Lizzy Caplan stars as Virginia Johnson, his partner in science and, eventually, love. That cast alone is enough to get me to sit up and pay attention, but the first trailer also makes the show look like a hell of a lot of fun. Hit the jump to check it out.

Be warned that while the trailer is technically SFW — there’s no nudity or even cursing — there’s enough risqué material in here that perhaps you shouldn’t be watching it at work. Unless your office is as open-minded as Masters’, perhaps.

‘Dexter’ Could Spawn a Spin-Off Series

Dexter (07)

Briefly: Showtime’s hit series Dexter is winding down; this season will be the show’s last. My own interest in the show ran out a long time ago, but there’s still an audience for the murderous antics and strange family machinations of Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall). The Season 8 episodes to air so far are getting great ratings.

While Dexter is ending, Showtime just signed producer/showrunner Scott Buck to a two-year contract. When asked about the possibility of a Dexter spin-off, Showtime Entertainment President David Nevins referred to that deal and said “draw your own conclusions.” He added more later, according to EW, saying “we are really not dealing with it at all until we are through with this season and maybe a while thereafter.”

So while there’s not a lot to go on there, that answer is not a “no.” While it’s too early to guess how this season will end, and who’ll be left alive, place your bets on what character(s) might be the focus of a spin-off below.

Girl Meets World (1)

I suppose 32-year-old Ben Savage is technically old enough to have a 13-year-old daughter, but it still feels weird to see him playing the proud dad instead of the confused kid on Girl Meets World, doesn’t it? Also after the jump:

  • Guillermo del Toro has guest directed something on The Simpsons

Ray Donovan

As antiheroes go, it’s tough to find one more “anti” than Dexter Morgan. He’s a serial killer, for God’s sake. But he can’t stick around Showtime forever, so this summer, he’ll help usher another shady character into the channel’s lineup.

Following Dexter on Sunday nights this month will be Ray Donovan, starring Liev Schreiber as a fixer of problems who — wait for it — can’t seem to fix his own problems. The drama isn’t set to premiere until June, but Showtime’s getting a head start on the buzz by debuting the first episode online for free, almost two weeks early. Check it out after the jump.
