With the shock departure of Brody (Damian Lewis) in Homeland's third season, Showtime's CIA-focused series went through a revamp in the fourth season, finding Carrie (Claire Danes) as the station chief of the CIA's base of operations in Islamabad.
Things quickly went from bad to worse for Carrie and the bureau, leading to a flurry of intense and exciting episodes that the fifth season will have to work hard to live up to.
According to Showtime, it seems as if the fifth season could be going through another narrative reboot.
The synopsis reads: "The series will pick up two years after Carrie Mathison's ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the "war on terror," Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working as the head of security for a German philanthropist."
Carrie seems to be in a bit of a strange mood in the new teaser, unsure on what it is she's actually doing, at least from Saul's perspective, who tells her she is being "naive and stupid. Something you never were before."
Shot entirely on location in Germany and becoming the first American series to do so for an entire season, Homeland will premiere in the fall on Showtime in the US.
