This week, Showtime released a new two-minute trailer for the upcoming fourth season of its Emmy-winning spy drama Homeland. In addition to Claire Danes in a headscarf, a gloriously bearded Mandy Patinkin, and one seriously ginger baby, the clip features Corey Stoll taking a break from his role—and his awful wig—on FX’s The Strain to play a much-less-hirsute possible double agent.
Stoll, of course, also played the manipulable, alcoholic congressman Peter Russo on House of Cards’ first season. (The actor is having a big year; in addition to these high-profile roles, he also appeared in Ryan Murphy’s made-for TV movie The Normal Heart alongside Mark Ruffalo and Julia Roberts.)
While much has been said about Homeland’s decline in quality after its inaugural season—including in our WashingTelevision coverage—perhaps the return of Saul and Stoll’s always welcome presence will mark the show’s triumphant renaissance. The season-four premiere airs Sunday, October 5, at 9 PM.
Check out the trailer below.
