While fans are eagerly waiting for any updates regarding Season 6 of Showtime's political thriller series "Homeland" from any of the network's officials or show's creators, here are the recent updates revealed for the upcoming season by some of the cast members of the series.

During last month's People's Choice Awards, Mandy Patinkin, who portrays the character of Saul Berenson in the show, talked about his hopes and expectations for the upcoming episodes of "Homeland."

"I hope it goes somewhere that makes a profound statement about something broken in this world that in our fictional viewpoint, we might have a suggestion on how to set it right," Patinkin said.

Patinkin said he wishes that the upcoming season of "Homeland" emphasises on more real life incidents and revolve the story of the series around these events.

Previously, Showtime president David Nevins had revealed at the Television Critics Association press tour that most of the episodes of Season 6 will be set in New York. However, he confirmed that the entire series won't be shot in New York.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Nevins said: "I think the actors will be happy to be back in the U.S. For a year, I don't think it's necessarily going to stay there forever, but there was a strong interest in doing a domestic story from the creative team."

When asked whether the upcoming season will tackle the topic of Donald Trump and his controversial speeches regarding immigrants, Nevins said that even though the writers don't tend to tell stories about real people, the themes of the story are drawn or are inspired from real accounts.

"Homeland" Season 6 is scheduled to air in September on Showtime, though there has been no official release date announced by the channel or show-runners.
