The upcoming television series will be based on the podcast of the same name, Homecoming. Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg created the podcast. This show can be labelled as a venture or an expedition to a new professional world as Heidi is seen to use an experimental method to treat soldiers coming home from war. On the other plane, it can also be considered as a conspiracy thriller. Sam Esmail is supposed to direct this series. The television series is also his brainchild.

Stephan James appears as Walter Cruz, who is a young military veteran as well as a client of the Homecoming facility. He is very eager to rejoin civilian life. Bobby Cannavale has been cast as Colin Belfast, Heidi’s supervisor. Shea Whigham stars as Thomas Carrasco. The Department of Defense has hired her as a bureaucrat investigating the Homecoming Transitional Support Center. Alex Karpovsky is cast as Craig who is also an employee at the Homecoming facility. The other side roles will be played by Dermot Mulroney, Hong Chau, Jeremy Allen White, Sidney Poitier, Brooke Bloom, Jacob Pitts, and Sissy Spacek playing the roles of Anthony, Heidi’s boyfriend, Audrey Temple, working as an assistant at the Geist Emergent Group which is Homecoming’s parent company.

Lydia plays Colin’s wife, Pam plays Carrasco’s boss at the Department of Defense, and AJ has been cast as an explorer of several new business ventures.
