Netflix brings Homeland and American Horror Story to the UK

Netflix customers in the UK can now stream the first two seasons of Homeland and American Horror Story

Both of the hit US shows will be available exclusively for members in the UK and Ireland to watch instantly from 13 March 2014. 

The critically acclaimed drama Homeland stars Claire Danes, who received a Golden Globe and Emmy Award for her performance as CIA agent Carrie Mathieson and Damian Lewis, also a Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner for his role as American soldier Nicholas Brody. 

Damian Lewis comes home to the UK following Netflix’s latest deal with Fox

The series follows Brody’s transformation from war hero to suspected sleeper cell operative planning a terrorist atrocity after he returns home from 10 years capture in Iraq. 

American Horror Story is the award-winning hit anthology series from creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulchuck. The first American Horror Story explores a subversive modern horror tale via the story of the Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish.

Starring Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott and Oscar and Emmy award winning actress Jessica Lange, the series also includes Kate Mara, star of Netflix Original series House of Cards. Series two, American Horror Story: Asylum, is set in a Church-run haven for the criminally insane in 1964, ruled with an iron fist by a nun with a troubled past, Sister Jude, played by Jessica Lange. The series also stars Sarah Paulson, Joseph Fiennes and Zachary Quinto.

“We are excited to bring both of these brilliant series, Homeland and American Horror Story, to our members in the UK & Ireland,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. “These global smash series are two of the most talked about shows in entertainment, and we think that our members are going to love these latest additions.”

Homeland and American Horror Story are the latest Twentieth Century Fox shows to arrive on Netflix in the UK and Ireland. Other hit shows already available to members include Sons of Anarchy, White Collar, The Killing, 24, Prison Break and cult comedies The League, Arrested Development and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
