Showtime’s Homeland returns in February for Season 8, and the network released an official trailer on Friday to tease the new episodes. If you want to set a reminder, Homeland Season 8 premieres on Showtime on February 9th.
I should also mention that Season 8 is the final final season of the Emmy and Golden Globe winning drama. The popular series stars Emmy, Screen Actors Guild, and Golden Globe winner Claire Danes. and Emmy and Tony winner Mandy Patinkin. Along with Danes and Patinkin, the final season stars Maury Sterling, Linus Roache and Costa Ronin, with Nimrat Kaur and Numan Acar also returning from season four in series regular roles. Fans will get 12 episodes in the final season, which looks like it might be the best one yet.
The network’s official Homeland Season 8 description reads, “The final season of HOMELAND finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) recovering from months of brutal confinement in a Russian gulag. Her body is healing, but her memory remains fractured – which is a problem for Saul (Patinkin), now National Security Advisor to the newly ascendant President Warner (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Beau Bridges). The top priority of Warner’s young administration is an end to the “forever war” in Afghanistan, and Saul has been dispatched to engage the Taliban in peace negotiations. But Kabul teems with warlords and mercenaries, zealots and spies – and Saul needs the relationships and expertise that only his protégé can provide. Against medical advice, Saul asks Carrie to walk with him into the lion’s den – one last time.”
Homeland is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios for Showtime, and was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon. The show is based on the original Israeli series Prisoners of War by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa and Gordon, executive producers for season eight include Chip Johannessen, Debora Cahn, Lesli Linka Glatter, Patrick Harbinson, Claire Danes, Michael Klick, Avi Nir, Ran Telem and Gideon Raff.
