Showtime said Friday that production is under way on what will be the final season of one of its signature dramas, “Homeland.” The show’s eighth and final season will premiere on Feb. 9, 2020, and will consist of 12 episodes.
“Former CIA agent Carrie struggled last season to uncover an international conspiracy to harm America’s democratic institutions,” the AP reports. “The final season will open with Carrie, played by Claire Danes, recovering physically and mentally from her imprisonment in a Russian gulag. She’s enlisted to help co-star Mandy Patinkin’s Saul in a bid for peace in Afghanistan.”
Other cast members include Beau Bridges, Maury Sterling and Linus Roache.
