Homeland Season 6 Plot Synopsis
After she thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin, season six picks up several months later and finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) back on American soil, living in Brooklyn, New York. She has begun working at a foundation that was created for the purpose of providing aid to Muslims living in the U.S. Season six will tackle the after-effects of the U.S. presidential election, with the entire season taking place between election day and the inauguration.
