If, like us, you’re dying to see the final season of Homeland, the next piece of news is going to leave you severely disappointed.
The last installment of the series, based on the Israeli drama Hatufim, will see Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) embark on one final mission.
The longline from Showtime states:
“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 (Mandy Patinkin), now National Security Advisor to the newly ascendant President Warner (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.”
Danes, Patinkin, and Bridges will be reprising their roles in the eighth season, alongside Maury Sterling, Linus Roache and Costa Ronin, Nimrat Kaur, Numan Acar, and Hugh Dancy.
Fans will have a while to wait, however, as the final season is only scheduled to premiere on February 9th, 2020.
