The return of the popular series also sparked resurgence in popularity of the Homeland Season one DVD which shot to the top of the Film & Bestseller chart at Amazon.co.uk last night.
“As one of the most highly-anticipated TV series this autumn Homeland didn’t disappoint when it returned to the screen last night, immediately triggering a huge surge in people pre-ordering the DVD and Blu-ray of Season 2,” said John Boumphrey, Music, DVD and MP3 director at Amazon.co.uk Ltd.
“Season 1 has been selling well due to big wins at the recent Emmy Awards but now that people have started watching Season 2 the first season has shot to the top of the bestseller chart and we predict it could be a contender for one of the most popular box sets this Christmas.” He added.
The site says that demand for the DVD for series two had increased 750% while Blu-ray saw an uplift of 450%.
Homeland is currently airing in the UK on Channel 4
