Homeland is one of the most unpredictable shows. It is very difficult to predict what is going to happen in the next season. The show has been renewed for an eighth season. In the finale of the seventh season, we saw Carrie being captured by Russian national Yevgeny Gromov. She was then released as a part of a prisoner exchange after seven months. She was not in good condition as she was unable to get her medication.
The eighth season was supposed to be released in the summer of 2019. However, there has been a change of plans. Gary Levine announced that there would be a change in the release date of the show. In a statement, he revealed, “We previously announced a June premiere but because of [international] production demands… we’re moving the final season premiere back to the fall.” So, we will have to wait for a longer time to watch the eighth season.
The first five seasons were all released in and around September-October. The last two seasons, however, were released pretty early on. The eighth season was slated to arrive in early 2019 but, due to some issues, it was pushed back to late 2019.
The showrunner Alex Gansa had previously said that Homeland’s seventh and eighth season was planned to be tied closely. There will be a time jump between the seventh and eighth seasons of the show. This will be the final season of the show, and this was teased all the way back in 2016. Gansa had insisted that Homeland would be finished after the eighth season.
Moving on to the cast of the show. The main cast of the show will be returning along with certain other possibilities. Here is the cast for the eighth season of Homeland:
Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison
Mandy Patinkin as Saul Berenson
F. Murray Abraham as Dar Adal
Elizabeth Marvel as Elizabeth Keane
Maury Sterling as Max Piotrowski
Linus Roache as David Wellington
Jake Weber as Brett O’Keefe.
