The fifth season of popular TV series Homeland, that returns this October, will deal with sensitive issues of Charlie Hebdo, Edward Snowden and ISIS. Presiedent of Showtime (the channel that airs Homeland) David Nevins, told reporters at a press meet that Homeland will "face the threat of Muslim extremist group ISIS".
Homeland season 5 will deal with interesting and sensitive issues like Charlie Hebdo.
"It deals with ISIS. I feel like this story is a very fresh story. Its themes, I think, will resonate with people. Charlie Hebdo. (Edward) Snowden. There's interesting elements to this season, and it brings a lot of things together. And as long as they keep it fresh, it's a show that's never the same season after season, and those kinds of shows are the shows that can run," Nevins told TV Critics as part of an annual summer press tour.
Season five picks up two years from the finale. Claire Danes' Carrie Mathison has left the CIA and is in Berlin, where privacy laws are very strict. "The first episode's going to really deal with Russia, being right next to Russia, what's Putin up to? What's going on with this tricky relationship there?" Nevins said.
