Showtime Renews Homeland For Season 5, The Affair Gets Season 2

Yesterday, Showtime announced that a couple of its 2014 hits are coming back.

While there was fear about a Homeland without Brody, the absence of Brody (not including this past Sunday’s episode) has actually reinvigorated the series to the point where the pay cabler has already announced that it will return for a fifth season.

In addition, Showtime’s newest hit, The Affair will be rewarded with a sophomore follow-up.

“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,” Showtime president David Nevins said in a statement. “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.”
