Homeland season 6 focuses on the aftermath of a U.S. presidential election and the transition between Election Day and the inauguration ceremony held for the president-elect. The upcoming season will open some romance possibility between the star-crossed lovers, Carrie and Quinn, according to showrunner Alex Gansa.
He told TV Line, "We really thought that Carrie was going to kill him at the end of the season. And then when we got there, we just couldn't do it. There was the whole business about her faith and this newfound Catholicism, and we were like, 'I just don't think she is going to kill him at the end.'"
Gansa even has some good news for Carrie and Quinn fans and shared, "The Quinn you're going to see this season is not the Quinn you've seen before and that's going to actually open up possibilities between him and Carrie."
The official synopsis for season 6 reads as follows:
After she thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, season six picks up several months later and finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) living in Brooklyn, New York. She has begun working at a foundation whose efforts are to provide aid to Muslims living in the U.S. Season six will tackle the after effects of the U.S. presidential election, with the entire season taking place between election day and the inauguration. It's a strange, transitional time in the halls of government filled with anxiety and different competing interests, where a very fragile and complex transfer of power takes place between the outgoing president and the incoming president-elect.
