Showtime has renewed both Homeland and The Affair, EW has learned.

Homeland, which was picked up for a 12-episode fifth season, has been averaging 6 million weekly viewers, while The Affair—which will return with a 10-episode sophomore run—draws 3.9 million weekly viewers.

“In its fourth season, Homeland has brilliantly reinvented itself,” Showtime President David Nevins says. “It continues to capture the attention of a devoted fan base, and has provided an enviable platform for the successful launch of The Affair. With thought-provoking, relevant and addictive storylines, both series have been embraced, dissected and much debated week after week. We’re excited to see more from these complex shows in 2015.”

Homeland and The Affair air Sundays starting at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
