What happened In Homecoming Season 1?
The season 1 revolves around Heidi Bergman, a social worker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, a live-in facility run by the geist group. The facility apparently helped soldiers conversion to civilian life.
However, later it discovered that the Homecoming facility isn’t really helping the soldiers, it is being run by a shady pharmaceutical agency called Geist which is pumping them with a dr*g that claims to treat PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) but is actually deleting their memories so that the government can’t transfer them.
Homecoming Season 2
The makers of the season 1, managed to tie all loose ends while solving the problems. However, it opened the door for so many more questions about Homecoming season 2.
Did Walter remember Heidi?
Walter, having been handed a double dosage of the memory-erasing medication during the last days of his stay at Homecoming, apparently does not remember Heidi. However, Heidi tried hard but Walter’s mother, Gloria, told her that Walter was happy now and that she shouldn’t disturb him by digging up their past.
Later, they met coincidentally in a dinner somewhere in California and speaks to Heidi as if she’s a stranger. She decides to bring up their memories which they shared. But as he walks out the door, she notices that he has positioned her fork at an angle, much as he did with her pen during their final session in her office four years previously.
Is this him letting her know that he remembers everything from the past but doesn’t want others to know?
What can the podcast tells about the Season 2
The original Homecoming podcast did run for season 2 (12 episodes), but writers Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg changed the latter half of the story quite a bit.
In the podcast, Heidi teamed up with the former employers of Geist just to track down Walter but doesn’t manage to do so by the season 2 end.

The season was premiered on Amazon in November 2019. And the good news is that the makers of the series have started the production of Homecoming 2.
The second season will be directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez. It will star Stephan James as Walter, Bobby Cannavale as Heidi’s boss Colin Belfast, Shea Whigham as Thomas Carrasco from the Department of Defence, Alex Karpovsky as Homecoming employee Craig, Sissy Spacek as Heidi’s mother Ellen Bergman, Marianne Jean-Baptiste as Walter’s mother Gloria Cruz, Dermot Mulroney as Heidi’s on-off boyfriend Anthony, Hong Chau as Geist employee Audrey Temple and Jeremy Allen White as veteran Shrier.
I am sure that after knowing so much about the season, the audience can’t wait to watch and our hunch is it will premier on Amazon by the end of the year 2020.
