Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) is all geared up to return as the CIA agent and go on new missions in the sixth season of Showtime's drama-thriller series, "Homeland."
In the previous season, Carrie was working as a security specialist in one of Berlin's private institution against the will of his boss in the U.S., Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).
Saul was under the impression that Carrie was committing treason by providing information of crucial importance to foreigners. However, it seems that Carrie was working on a secret mission that might be explored in the upcoming season.
According to Ecumenical News, Carrie will reunite with old friends in the CIA once she will be back in the U.S. She got into a relationship in Season 5 and tried her best to start a normal life. However, things didn't go as she had expected and they had to separate as both belonged to different professions. Eventually, she decided to return to the U.S.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Alex Gansa, executive producer of the series, said that giving Carrie a break that she deserved was not a unanimous decision and it was done so she could live a normal life outside her job as a CIA agent.
"We've taken her through so much sturm and drang over the last few years that we thought it would be nice to give her a little domestic bliss — which, by the way, was not something everybody wanted to do or everyone wanted to see on our staff. It was nice to see her in a completely different environment doing something completely different from that work but using her old skill set to do so," Gansa said.
Deadline has reported that in Season 6, Carrie and CIA will be mostly fighting terrorism in the U.S. and the story of the series will be more realistic than the previous ones as they will be based on real life events.
Screen Rant has reported that Homeland Season 6 is expected to air in October 2016 on Showtime.
