Homeland season 6 production delayed after Rupert Friend's injury

After inhaling a near-fatal amount of sarin gas and subsequently fighting for his life at the tail end of Homeland’s fifth season, it seems as if Peter Quinn can’t catch a break, and the same can be said for the actor who’s played the CIA operative on the show since 2012.
