Showtime Day at Winter TCA’s. As a good optimist that I am, I expected some answers about the future of Rupert’s character in Homeland. Well, we got some answers… vague answers, that certainly don’t clarify at all what can happen in the sixth season with Quinn.
The first thing Showtime’s CEO, David Nevins, clarified about Homeland is that the Season 6 will shoot in NYC. The new season will primarily be set domestically in the U.S. According to Gary Levine, president of programming at Showtime, Alex Gansa “sees many seasons to come”.
And focusing on Quinn’s fate, this is what we heard on social networks about what they said.
David Nevins on Quinn:
I know and have seen exactly as much as you guys have seen. There is no definitive answer given.
The writers are very carefully in what they show & how they tell the story. No definitive answer about Quinn’s fate.
It’s a show that, more than those other shows, attempts to live in the real world. With Homeland, it’s not about playing games, it’s not a supernatural show, there will be no supernatural solution — if he should live.”
Gary Levine on Quinn:
In terms of its reality, Quinn is severely damaged. There is no question about it. The life-or-death question remains. But if he should live, it will not be in any way, shape or form the way he has lived to date.
What do you think? Good news, bad news?
I’m on the side of those who prefer to think that he is still alive, mainly by the fact that the new situation that Quinn could face in season 6, could bring him an excellent interpretive possibilities, a new way to show us Quinn, totally reinvented… Just thinking about it makes me want to happen!!
All these headlines were obtained through the tweets of those attending Showtime’s panel at TCA16. Take a look to all of them through #Homeland’s hashtag via this link.
