Mumbai- April 28, 2015 – Seeing the growing need for uninterrupted entertainment, Star World has launched Amazon.in presents Star World Weekend Binge last week, to give viewers a chance to watch the complete seasons of the most popular shows at one go.

This weekend the channel will air for the very first time the complete season 4 of Homeland at one go!
Showtime and Fox 21 Television Studios have announced today that season five of the Emmy® and Golden Globe® award winning series HOMELAND will shoot on location in Germany, becoming the first American television series to shoot a full season entirely in Germany. Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, season five of HOMELAND picks up two years after Carrie Mathison’s (Emmy®, SAG and Golden Globe Award® winner Claire Danes) ill-fated tenure as Islamabad station chief. Struggling to reconcile her guilt and disillusionment with years of working on the front lines in the “war on terror,” Carrie finds herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, estranged from the CIA and working for a private security firm.
Developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, HOMELAND is based on the original Israeli series "Prisoners of War" by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa, Gordon and Raff, the executive producers for season five are Alexander Cary, Chip Johannessen, Meredith Stiehm, Patrick Harbinson, Lesli Linka Glatter, Avi Nir and Ran Telem. In India, the series is set to premiere season five this fall on the premium English general entertainment channel, Star World Premiere HD, at the same time as its US premiere.
