Season 6 picks up several months after Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) thwarted a terrorist attack in Berlin and is back in the U.S., living in Brooklyn. She has begun working at a foundation whose efforts are to provide aid to Muslims living in the U.S. In a real-life parallel, the sixth season will tackle the after effects of the U.S. presidential election, with the entire season taking place between election day and the inauguration. It’s a strange, transitional time in the halls of government filled with anxiety and competing interests, where a very fragile and complex transfer of power takes place between the outgoing president and the incoming president-elect. Guest stars this season include Hill Harper (Limitless), Robert Knepper (Prison Break), Patrick Sabongui (The Flash) and Dominic Fumusa (Nurse Jackie).
Executive producers for season six will be Chip Johannessen, Lesli Linka Glatter, Michael Klick, Patrick Harbinson, Claire Danes, Gideon Raff, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.
