third season finally has a screening date locked in for New Zealand.

The series, which follows CIA operations against potential terrorists and stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, is scheduled to air on Sky TV's Soho channel on February 5 at 8.30pm.

The previous two seasons aired on TV3, but the network lost rights to screen the third season after going into receivership.


The third season received mixed reviews and the show's stars and creators were snubbed from next Monday's Golden Globe awards.

But it promises plenty of action as it picks up where season two left off, after a terror attacked decimated the US intelligence agency and resulted in more than 200 deaths.
