At the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con panel, Amazon unveiled the trailer for their upcoming thriller series Homecoming. The series is based on the popular podcast of the same name created by Micah Bloomberg and Eli Horowitz.
Homecoming features Julia Roberts in the lead role of Heidi Bergman, a caseworker at a facility which helps soldiers transition back to civilian life. After four years, Heidi starts working in another route as a waitress, with her mother. However, she is later confronted by the thought of why she actually left the facility. It is her own journey of self realization about why she actually took the different step, what Homecoming is about.
The series is a major step up for Amazon’s original programming, with an A-list movie star like Roberts leading the way. Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail will be in charge of the direction. Homecoming will premiere Friday, November 2nd on Amazon Prime Video, and also stars Stephan James, Bobby Cannavale, Sissy Spacek, Shea Whigham, Jeremy Allen White, Alex Karpovsky, and Dermot Mulroney.
