The official synopses read: “Homeland Season 5 will
pick up two years after Carrie Mathison’s (Claire Danes) ill-fated tenure as
Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment
with years of working on the front lines in the ‘war on terror,’ Carrie finds
herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working
as the head of security for a German philanthropist.”

“Season 2 of ‘The Affair’ explores the emotional and
psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime
that brings these individuals back together. This season, the provocative drama
will be told separately from four different perspectives, revealing four
distinct truths.”
