'Homeland' and 'The Affair' Renewed By Showtime

Showtime has ordered a fifth season of the political thriller Homeland and a second season of the drama The Affair.

Although perhaps not the buzz generator it once was, the Emmy-winning Homeland is averaging 6 million weekly viewers in its rebooted fourth season as Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) continues her fight against terrorism following the execution of Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis).

Exploring the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship, The Affair stars Dominic West and Ruth Wilson as a teacher and waitress who meet in a resort town on Long Island. Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson play their spouses.
