Season 6 of Showtime's political thriller series "Homeland" is all set to premiere in October this year. Though the network hasn't revealed the plot of the upcoming season, series co-creator Alex Gansa has teased that Peter Quinn (Rupert Friend) will return as the assassin.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Gansa has said that Peter will be back as the ruthless assassin and the audience will get to see a whole new side of him. The website has also reported that Peter might finally tie the knot with the protagonist Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes).

"How Peter Quinn's character is gonna be dramatised this year is going to surprise people, and it may not be what you think," Gansa said.

He also talked about Peter's relationship with Carrie, saying that both the characters are emotionally damaged and if they get together, it will undoubtedly jeopardise the ongoing mission.

"They're both very damaged people and I think that they have a similar attraction to high voltage, high adrenaline situations that tend to have an incredible benefit but more likely to have a very catastrophic end."

In an interview with Sioux City Journal, Gansa also revealed that Nicolas Brody's (Damian Lewis) daughter Dana (Morgan Saylor) might return in the upcoming season as a new CIA agent.

Talking with the website, Gansa said: "I'm still interested in the Brody family, though. I know they caused grimaces across the Internet...What if she (Dana) became a CIA officer, right? That would be so interesting."

Blasting News has reported that if Dana returns to Season 6, there is a significant possibility that she will assist Peter in one way or the other. This will allow Peter to recover and ultimately, bring him closer to Carrie that might end up with their wedding.
