The parody of Showtime’s Emmy-award winning drama will open the 25th season premiere of the Fox animated series
“The Simpsons” is taking on Showtime series “Homeland” in the 25th season premiere episode on Sunday.
Fox’s animated staple will open with a credit sequence spoofing the opening to “Homeland,” an Emmy-winning drama starring Claire Danes as a CIA officer with bipolar disorder who believes a U.S. Marine (Damien Lewis) was “turned” while being held captive by al-Qaeda, and now threatens the United States.
“The Simpsons” season premiere episode is titled “Homerland,” as Lisa suspects Homer may have been “turned” when he returns a changed man from a nuclear power plant operating convention.
“Saturday Night Live” alum Kristen Wiig guest stars as an intense FBI agent that helps Lisa unravel the truth about her father.
