Homeland Home at Last

Sky’s SoHo channel is ditching a season of HBO documentaries to screen season three of Homeland from February 5 (8.30 Wednesdays).

SoHo had slated Mondays at Racine, Life According to Sam and Questioning Sam for this slot next month but these will now screen later in the year.

Homeland should have gone to air in September on TV3 but became a casualty of MediaWorks renegotiating its 20th Century Fox deal.

The broadcaster opted to forego Homeland in its new pact with the distributor, along with the latest season of another top spy drama, The Americans.

SoHo also has picked up this series, along with American Horror Story, but there’s no word on when they will air.

The Americans resumes late next month on US TV, so hopefully it will be early March at the latest, unless SoHo uses it to succeed Homeland in mid-April.

Chances are SoHo won’t screen season three of American Horror Story until after it broadcasts seasons one and two.

They’ve already aired on Four, but not in HD, and the channel may use all three to create a year-long AHS slot, as it did with Justified (season three of which at last will have its NZ premiere on January 14).

There’s still no sign of another highly regarded horror series, Universal’s Psycho spin-off, Bates Motel.

Meanwhile, TV3 is promoting The Blacklist as coming soon, so that should be on air by early February (the James Spader drama begins the second half of its season-one US run on January 20).

  1. The Blacklist looks like a darn good show, hope it rates well for TV3 🙂
