Two of Showtime’s most successful and critically-acclaimed premium cable shows have both been given the green light for further programming next year.

Sarah Treem & Hagai Levi’s endlessly sublime drama The Affair will enter it’s third season, whilst Howard Gordon & Alex Gansa’s broodingly brilliant CIA saga Homeland will be gearing up for a sixth round.

The Affair stars Ruth Wilson, Dominic West, Joshua Jackson & Maura Tierney. Homeland stars Claire Danes, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham & Mandy Patinkin.
