The return of Homeland is lurking just around the corner and on Thursday, Showtime teased more of the action by rolling an explosive new trailer for the spy thriller across the floor in our direction. Season 5 — which takes place in Germany two years after the madness of season 4 — finds Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) working as the head of security in the private sector … until the CIA comes looking for its gifted but troubled ex-employee of the decade when an espionage situation sprials out of control.
“Maybe I knew some day the past would catch up with me,” intones Carrie in the trailer. Click on the video to preview this season’s events, which includeH whackings, bombs, creepy masks, infiltrations, fleeings through forests, double-crosses, sexy times, stranglings, kidnappings, and, for those needing a lighter moment, Carrie playing with doggie-shaped balloons and children.
Homeland returns Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime.
