The lovely fall weather will now be aided by popular shows, "Homeland" and "The Affair". Showtime has announced that the two shows will be televised later this year.

Season 5 of "Homeland" and Season 2 of "The Affair" will be aired on Sunday, 4 October. The TV channel has slotted the Emmy winning Claire Danes' show at 9pm, which will segue into "The Affair" at 10pm.

Both series -- recipients of Emmy awards and the Golden Globe Awards -- have witnessed a rise in viewership. "According to Nielsen estimates, the regular-time slot airing of "Homeland" averaged a season-best 1.66 million viewers. First-year drama "The Affair" also delivered its most-watched episode of the season with 778,000 viewers at 10 p.m., up 16% from last week and 53% higher than the series premiere," reported Variety.

"Homeland", which has been nominated for four Emmy awards this year, will return to Carrie Mathison's (Claire Danes) story, albeit the storyline will be slightly different from how it ended in season 4. The new season's plot will explore Carrie's exile in Berlin after a failed stint as CIA's Islamabad station chief. The new season will also delve into Carrie's estranged relationship with the CIA, and it will focus on her current job as head of security for a German philanthropist, reported Entertainment Weekly.

The production of the new season is ongoing, and as Variety reported, it will be the first American series to be fully shot in Germany.

"The Affair", a televised series that involves story-telling from different points of view will most probably produce another season of multiple and layered story that will keep the audience guessing. Season 1 ended with the arrest of Noah Solloway (Dominic West), suspected of murdering his daughter's older lover.
