Showtime has announced renewals for both “Homeland” and “The Affair” for new seasons.
“Homeland” was picked up for Season 6, and “The Affair” for Season 3. While premiere dates have not been set, both are expected to return with their new seasons in 2016.
The renewals come as no surprise. The pickups were expected, as the dramas rank as the top two highest-rated premium cable series for this quarter, in addition to bringing much critical acclaim and award recognition to Showtime.
Paired together on Sunday nights, both “Homeland” and “Affair” opened stronger this fall than their respective previous seasons and have held steady through their current runs. Both will have their season finales on December 20.
