Homecoming is an American psychological thriller web series. The show is an adaptation of the podcast Homecoming. Horowitz and Bloomberg are the writers as well as executive producers of the show. Homecoming premiered on Amazon Prime Videos on November 2, 2018. The first season of the show received positive reviews from the critics. It scored 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, the second season did not receive the recognition as its predecessor.
The second season deviated from Horowitz’s original podcasts. Maybe, this is why it scored 56% on Rotten Tomatoes. In totality, the show is a hit. But, will it be coming for season 3? Read on to catch all the details.
The Plot of the Show:
The show revolves around Heidi Bergman. She is a social worker who helps people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Heidi works for Homecoming Transitional Support Centre. It is a facility run by Geist Group. The strange thing is that Geist Group produces household items. So, what can be the motive behind running this facility? The support centre works towards bringing back war effected soldiers to live normal lives. She develops a special bond with one of her patients, Walter Cruz.
After two years, she drops the facility and starts working as a hostess. The issue is that she gets a hard time remembering her time in Homecoming Transitional Support Centre. She gets under the radar of U.S. Department of Defense, as they begin to question her quitting the job. As she tries to recall the motive of her former job, she discovers that Geist Group is hiding something.
Homecoming Season 3 updates:
The second season of the show released recently on May 22, 2020. The show failed to capture the appreciation as the first season. However, questions are coming up if season 3 will release or not! There is no official confirmation on the 3rd instalment. The producers indicated that they are already planning for the third season. Looking at the trend of the season releasing every year, we can assume the season to release in 2021.
