'Homeland' Season 6 Trailer: Carrie Prepares for Battle Back in the U.S.

The new season premieres in January on Showtime.

Carrie Mathison is back in America on the upcoming sixth season of Homeland, but she's not exactly getting a warm welcome home.

On Friday, Showtime revealed the first footage from the new season of the Emmy-winning drama, which returns Jan. 15 after an extended hiatus.

The footage offers glimpses at several new faces, but it's the confrontations between Carrie (Claire Danes) and Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) that pack the biggest punch.

"I don't think you understand how vulnerable you are," he tells her in the teaser. "I don't think you do," she quickly responds.

The upcoming season, which was shot in New York, picks up months after the events of season five, with Carrie now living in Brooklyn. Season six will tackle the aftermath of the U.S. presidential election, with the entire season spanning the time between Election Day and the inauguration.The halls of government are filled with anxiety and conflicting interests, as a very fragile and complicated transfer of power takes place between the outgoing president and the incoming president-elect.

Homeland returns Sunday, Jan. 15, at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
