Showtime announces premiere dates of ‘Homeland’ season 6, ‘Billions’ season 2

Homeland season 7
Terrorist activity and white-collar crime will be returning to Showtime when Homeland season 6 and Billions season 2 premiere. We’re still months away from the next installments in the two series, but there is light at the end of the tunnel: The premium network announced during its Television Critics Association summer press tour event Thursday that the shows will return in early 2017, reports Variety.

Showtime previously broke the news that the return of Homeland would be later than usual, with the series arriving in January instead of in late September or early October as it has in the past. Thursday’s announcement revealed the exact time and date: 9 p.m. ET/PT on January 15. The espionage series will pick up months after the events of season 5 and follow Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) as she returns to the U.S. and the country transitions from one president to another.

Homeland is currently in production in New York, which is another change from recent years. Seasons 4 and 5 were filmed on location in South Africa and Germany. The series continue to be produced by Fox 21 Television Studios. Danes, Alex Gansa, Gideon Raff, Howard Gordon, Chip Johannessen, Patrick Harbinson, Lesli Linka Glatter, Michael Klick, Avi Nir, and Ran Telem executive produce.

The second season of Billions will hit Showtime at 10 p.m. ET/PT on February 19. Also in production in New York, the series centers on tension between U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and hedge fund billionaire Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis). Season 2 will bring a battle for control as characters adjust to a changing world.

The show’s cast also includes Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile, and Condola Rashad. Billions comes from creators and executive producers Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin; Koppelman and Levien also serve as writers and showrunners.
