TV Tonight reporting via the weekly newsletter that SBS have picked up the rights to Homeland from Ten.

It’ll commence airing next month.


That’s good news, odd not seeing it on a commercial now. I gave up on it. Loved the first few seasons.

The new season starts on Feb 11 in the US. Will SBS commence screening the show from the latest season?

The first six seasons on Ten did not get good ratings. Hopefully it will perform better on SBS. The eighth and final season is due next year.

It won’t rate higher on SBS than what it got on Ten, that’s for sure.

Btw, Season 1 did alright.

Homeland Season 7 premieres exclusively on SBS

Clear your Friday night schedules. From Friday 16 February, SBS will exclusively premiere season seven of Homeland in Australia with the series available on SBS and to watch anytime on SBS On Demand.

Starring Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Claire Danes and Emmy® and Tony® winner Mandy Patinkin, the series also stars returning actors Elizabeth Marvel, Linus Roache, Maury Sterling and Jake Weber, and joining the cast this season is acclaimed actor Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire).

Danes stars as CIA officer Carrie Mathison, top in her field despite being bipolar, which makes her volatile and unpredictable. With the help of her long-time mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), Carrie fearlessly risks everything, including her personal well-being and sanity, at every turn.

At the end of season six, following an assassination attempt on her life, President Keane (Elizabeth Marvel) broke her promise to Carrie by arresting 200 members of the intelligence community without bringing charges against them, including Saul Berenson.

In season seven, Carrie has moved back to D.C. to take on the Keane administration and secure the release of the 200 and prove that not all conspiracies are theories.

Homeland is based on the original Israeli series Prisoners of War, which previously aired in Australia on SBS in 2013.

SBS Director of Television and Online Content, Marshall Heald said:

“SBS audiences were captivated by the gripping, emotional Israeli drama that inspired Homeland, so we’re thrilled to bring the penultimate season of this US hit drama to Australian audiences.

“Homeland explores geopolitics, international intrigue and espionage and is a compelling human drama.”

The show has been bumped to 10.55pm this Friday (April 20) due to low ratings.

Shame because this season is excellent. Anyway I dont see the point in moving the show when there are only 3 episodes left.

Claire Danes said on The Howard Stern Show that the upcoming eighth season would be the show’s last.
