The world of spies has always been a fascinating subject for the audience. Everyone loves to watch a secret agent, working in dangerous circumstances, trying to save the country, sometimes the world, from one thing or another. ‘Homeland’ is one of the best shows in the spy genre. It has generated acclaim since its first season and has a faithful audience that waits for it, one season after another. At the centre of its story is Carrie Mathison, a CIA operative who believes that the war-hero who has returned home after years of captivity is now an enemy. After seven seasons of the run, the plotline of ‘Homeland’ has evolved miles ahead from where it started. And with the eighth season, next year, it is going to end Carrie’s story.
If you are one of the fans of the show, you could binge watch on the first seven seasons before the eighth airs. Or you can choose from this list of TV shows similar to Homeland that are our recommendations. You can stream some of these TV series like Homeland on Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime.
