‘Homeland’ and ‘The Affair’ Renewed For New Seasons

By December 9, 2015

Two of TV’s best shows have officially found new life.

Today, Showtime has officially renewed two of their most successful dramas. The Affair has been picked up for a third season next year,Homeland has also received the green light for its sixth season, as both series approach their respective season finales in just a few short weeks.

After Homeland had been on a bit of a creative dry spell following its incredible, critically-acclaimed first season, one of Showtime’s staple TV shows finally experienced a return-to-form last year with its fourth season. Now, the spy series is in the midst of one of its best seasons to date, mixing some new espionage elements with the matured, character relationships that have been established over the past few seasons. For fans of the series too, season five has been a non-stop flow of intellectual tension, reminding them of the writing that made them fall in love with Homeland in the first place.

After making a splash as one of the best and most unique shows on television last year, The Affair has come back sinking home runs consistently throughout its second season. After adding two new perspectives to its unique format as well, The Affair could have been biting off more than it could chew, but has quickly become one of the premiere TV dramas airing right now, and the third season renewal just drives that point home even further.

In terms of renewals, neither of these come as much of a surprise considering the critical-acclaim that they both bring to Showtime, and the awards attention that they bring every new year. As both The Affair and Homeland continue to function perfectly on every level too, this was probably the best decision that Showtime could have made.

Both Homeland and The Affair air every Sunday night on Showtime.
