Showtime Pulls the Plug on Signature Series

Aug 7, 2018  •  Post A Comment

A drama series that has had a wildly successful run on Showtime, raking in awards and becoming one of the pay-cable channel’s signature series, will wrap with one final season. Showtime today announced plans to bring “Homeland” to a conclusion with an eighth and final season, to premiere in June 2019.

Showtime noted that production on the final 12-episode season will begin in early 2019, with the location still to be determined.

David Nevins, President and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc., made the announcement Monday at the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour.

“‘Homeland’ has been a game-changing series for Showtime, as provocative about the world we live in as it is prescient,” Nevins said. “This project, arriving right at the beginning of my Showtime tenure thanks to Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and brought to life by a remarkable cast led by Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, is a richly written character study that is now ready for its natural conclusion. Viewers will be rewarded by the way Alex brings ‘Homeland’ home.”

  1. The best programs are the ones that know when to shut down. This program has done a great job of taking itself in a completely new direction twice during the course of the series without ever losing its edge. Great writing doen’t get enough credit and this series had some of the best writing on television.
