THE MAKERS of TV drama Homeland have announced that the next series will make the leap to being set in the real world.
Season six of the US spy drama will surprise regular viewers by featuring “believable characters” in “true-to-life situations”.
Producer Emma Bradford said: “Homeland fans have journeyed with Carrie from the merely implausible to the outer realms of insanity, so we decided to bring this one back down to earth.
“She’ll be working in an office, tracking terrorists by going through phone records, occasionally popping out to shoot someone but no more than one at a time.
“It might be difficult for regular viewers to unsuspend their disbelief, but for them it’ll be just as shocking to see characters remain alive through a whole series instead of alive-dead-alive again-dead again-alive again as a final twist.”
Fan Martin Bishop said: “The real world? No, I don’t think I’m ready for that.”
