Showtime Officially Renews “Homeland” and “The Affair”

One is its highest-profile (albeit not most-watched) drama. One is its buzzworthy new series. Both will be back next season.

Showtime announced Monday that dramas “Homeland” and “The Affair,” which currently air on Sundays, will return next year.

Per the premium network’s announcement, “Homeland” will receive a twelve-episode fifth season, while “The Affair” will enjoy a ten-episode sophomore run. Both new seasons will premiere in 2015.

“In its fourth season, HOMELAND has brilliantly reinvented itself. It continues to capture the attention of a devoted fan base, and has provided an enviable platform for the successful launch of THE AFFAIR,” said Showtime’s David Nevins. “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.”
