The trailer shows that the series is about a woman who’s working for a Government program, that’s a safe place for soldiers who have gone through war. As expected, the web series is a psychological thriller and the trailer promises a great experience for the audience. The series will stream in November.

This is a new aspect for Julia also, who’s mostly known for her lovey-dovey image. Of course, she’s won an Oscar for Erin Brokovich, which changed the way audiences looked at her, but this one is far out different from anything that she’s done.

Homecoming promises to be a benchmark in psychological thrillers. The trailer itself has an eerie, creepy feel to it that engages the audience along with the way and keeps them connected with the story.


Homecoming is a mind-bending psychological thriller starring Julia Roberts and directed by Sam Esmail (creator of MR. ROBOT). Heidi Bergman (Roberts) is a caseworker at the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, a Geist Group facility helping soldiers transition back to civilian life. Walter Cruz (Stephan James) is one of these soldiers, eager to begin the next phase of his life. Overseeing Heidi and the facility is Colin Belfast (Bobby Cannavale), an ambitious company man whose manic demands point to questionable motives.
Four years later, Heidi has started a new life, living with her mother (Sissy Spacek) and working as a small-town waitress, when a Department of Defense auditor (Shea Whigham) comes to her with questions about why she left the Homecoming facility. Heidi begins to realize that there’s a whole other story behind the story she’s been telling herself.

Based on the popular podcast of the same name, HomeComing is created by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg.  The cast also includes Jeremy Allen White, Alex Karpovsky, Dermot Mulroney, among others. HomeComing will debut exclusively on Amazon Prime Video November 2, 2018.
