Here are a few notes on upcoming renewals and fall premieres for some high profile and Emmy-nominated Showtime and Starz! series. The biggest news thus far is the confirmation that Homeland will indeed sit out the 2016 television season. Needing additional time in the conceptual stage, Showtime’s former Drama Series Emmy winner will debut in January 2107. The sixth season will reportedly focus on the aftermath of a U.S. Presidential election. It will also be renewed for a seventh and eighth season under show runner Alex Gansa and star Claire Danes.
Also in the renewals and fall premieres category are the premiere dates for Showtime’s big fall tv series. Masters of Sex season four will debut September 11. Shameless season seven will premiere October 2. Finally, The Affair will return for a third season on November 20 after Masters of Sex wraps up.
Over on Starz!, the beloved costume drama Outlander has been renewed for seasons three and four. Season two aired this spring and was broadly embraced by critics, receiving a 98% percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Season three will center around Diana Gabaldon’s Voyager with season four based on Drums of Autumn.
