Raise a large glass of white wine and drink up, Homeland Fanatics.

Showtime has announced the premiere date for Season 4, along with a nice surprise for fans:

Carrie Matheson will return to our lives with back-to-back episodes on Sunday, October 5.

["T]here is such strong anticipation for the start of Season 4 that we wanted to give Homeland fans an extra generous helping of Carrie and company,” said Showtime EVP Gary Levine said in a statement. “Once we decided to premiere Homeland with a double episode, it made sense to use the momentum of that event to launch our newest series, The Affair, the very next week.”

Indeed, The Affair — an upcoming relationship drama starring Dominic West (The Wire), Ruth Wilson (Luther), Maura Tierney (ER) and Joshua Jackson (Fringe) — will now debut on Sunday, October 12, at 10/9c.

Homeland Season 4, meanwhile, will be filmed on location in South Africa and Carrie assigned to one of the most volatile and dangerous CIA stations in the Middle East.
