Homeland Is Meeting Its End
The Showtime embarks another explosive season with everything in transition. The bad news is that it is expected to be the final season of Homeland as it is meeting its climax on 9 February 2020.
Homeland is an American television drama starring Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison and Mandy Patinkin as Saul Berenson. The supporting cast is F. Murray Abraham as Dar Adal (behind bars, but still very much alive), Elizabeth Marvel as Elizabeth Keane, Maury Sterling as Max Piotrowski, Linus Roache as David Wellington (White House Chief of Staff), and Jake Weber as right-wing media personality Brett O’Keefe. Homeland is of high standing for its political thriller, drama, crime fiction, spy fiction, mystery, and psychological thriller.
What can we expect?
In the last season, we saw Yevgeny Gromov, Russian general, held Carrie captive and released after seven months in exchange for a prisoner. Carrie looks pathetic and weak as she is not even following her regimen. Moreover, she also refused to acknowledge Saul.
While the last season persisted in the home. Homeland is expected to touch overseas for the finale.”We get to play this last season in DC with the intention of taking us overseas for one last chapter,” Gansa said. “Season eight will be overseas somewhere.
“We get to play a story with larger national stakes in season 7, and we’ll go back to a smaller intelligence-based season in 8. We get to pull out all the stops this year and then get to the emotional heart of things in season 8.”
Is Season 8 the beginning of the END?
When asked Gansa about season 8 to be the conclusion of Homeland, he said
“It’s going to be my last year, I can’t speak for Claire [Danes] or Mandy [Patinkin], but it will be my final year, and it will be designed to be the end of an eight-season story.
“If Showtime, Fox, Claire, and Mandy want to take the show further, that’s their decision, and we would leave some room for that to happen – if there’s an appetite.”
Well, at least there’s little hope for fans.
