Watch: Claire Danes Navigates A Violent Pakistan In First ‘Homeland’ Season 4 Trailer

Watch: Claire Danes Navigates A Violent Pakistan In First 'Homeland' Season 4 Trailer

It’s quite the big day for ShowTime’s Emmy and Golden Globe-winning “Homeland,” which is gearing up for an internal reboot after last season’s shocking season finale dramatically shook up the groundwork of the hit series. Following in the footsteps of the new Season 4 poster is the political thriller’s debut trailer.

The clip provides fans with their first look at the new season, which relocates the adventures of CIA officer and new mom Carrie Mathison (Emmy winner Claire Danes, a nominee again this year for her work last season) to a violent Pakistan. With tons of fast-paced explosions and political intrigue, the trailer hopes to reroute fans back to the series after two uneven seasons. Will it work? Potentially, especially with old favorites Mandy Patinkin and Rupert Friend returning and new cast additions such as Corey Stroll filling in the absences from last season. 

The new season of “Homeland” premieres Sunday, October 6 at 9pm.

Terrible poster and, by the looks of the trailer, it will be equally horrific in its inaccurate depiction of Islamabad and Pakistan- which makes sense since they are using South Africa to stand in for Islamabad. I lived in Islamabad for 23 years and it happens to be a charming and beautiful little town that still acts as the nation's capital. And no, the entire population (or even the majority of it) does not wear burkas.

I am filming a project with two Pakistani characters in New York these days and its already better than this Emmy winning drama just because its more accurate.
