The COVID-19 continues to give us bad news. With the alarm state tax since already several days ago, many sectors have had to stop in the dry, including the audiovisual. The last to be affected is ‘Homeland’, the original series of HBO Spain, which has announced that it will not be ready in time for its release date initial.
Fiction, based on the best-selling novel by Fernando Aramburu, had set its release for may 17. But as has been announced by HBO on Twitter, have decided to delay their arrival to the platform “to ensure the safety of the teams in postproduction”. That is to say, still missing the last legs to finish the series but have preferred to send the teams home until they lift the quarantine.
We were very excited to debut and share #PatriaHBO with you but, due to circumstances that we cannot control and to ensure the safety of the equipment and post-production, we are forced to postpone the release date.

‘Homeland’ is the umpteenth project that remains in limbo because of the pandemic of the coronavirus. But from what we have seen already (just watch the trailer), the wait will be worth it. When it comes to HBO Spain will also to 60 other countries.
The series, like the book, follows two families and their respective matriarchs played by Elena Irureta and Ane Gabarain. The families, before very united, they will be separated by ETA and by a tragic murder. José Ramón Soroiz, Mikel Laskurain, Iñigo Arambarri, Susana Abaitua, Jon olive Groves, Loreto Mauleón and Eneko Sagardoy complete the cast of this series that, although it will take a little longer than expected to arrive, we still have many, many eager to see.
