Homeland Recap: Peace Is Hazardous to Your Health - Is [Spoiler] Dead?

The Afghan peace process got rocked by tragedy this week on Homeland — and things are about to get much less peaceful. Carrie gets hauled away by military police and driven to the airport, but she’s not being shipped out of Kabul. Saul is there to greet her, and tells her President Warner is on his way to announce the peace treaty deal. Warner arrives and sincerely thanks Carrie for the sacrifices she made in that Russian prison, and Carrie is clearly touched. Not everyon... more Comments

'Homeland': Why Carrie Mathison Had to Become Nicholas Brody in Final Season

For “Homeland” to do what it does best, Carrie Mathison had to become Nicholas Brody in the show’s eighth and final season. Alex Gansa, co-creator and showrunner of the Showtime drama series, realized the storytelling path for the swan-song year as they were filming the closing scenes of Season 7. Claire Danes’ intrepid, bipolar CIA agent would come full circle by finding herself under suspicion of having become a brainwashed double-agent turned by the enemy — in this case... more Comments

'Homeland' Review: Season 8 Brings the Showtime Drama Full Circle

There’s a symmetry to the final season of “Homeland” that speaks louder than any of its international rabble-rousing and high-octane action scenes. Carrie Mathison, the CIA officer with bipolar disorder who Claire Danes has squinted, screamed, sweated, and shaken her way into becoming over seven intense seasons, is now a former P.O.W. suspected of turning on her country. To Carrie, such an accusation is as ludicrous as it ... more Comments

Homeland EPs on Season 8 Delays and How Carrie's Struggle Connects to Brody - Plus, Is This Really the End?

Carrie Mathison’s last mission is about to begin: Homeland kicks off its eighth and final season this week… but the choice to end the Showtime spy thriller was actually made years ago. “The decision to end it after the eighth season happened after the fifth season,” back when Showtime renewed it for multiple seasons, executive producer Alex Gansa tells TVLine. There was “a huge financial incentive to keep the show going,” he adds. “The show ... more Comments

Claire Danes Says Homeland's Final Season 'Fuses Carrie With Brody'

Homeland‘s forthcoming final season will bring Carrie and Brody back together, cosmically at least. At the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour, showrunner Alex Gansa teased that Season 8 — which picks up several months after Carrie’s release from Russian captivity  — harkens back to the Showtime drama’s inaugural season, when Carrie was unsure if Brody was friend or foe.
