Happily, Homeland was renewed for a third season more than a week ago. There were tons of news reports announcing that.

I love Homeland and it should definitely keep going. If this show belonged to one of the non-cable networks, it would probably have higher viewership numbers. The 2nd season for me has been better than the 1st (discounting the flashback scenes).

The 2nd season is better than the 1st??? I loved the first season of this show but I am quickly becoming disillusioned with the 2nd. When Carrie was a rouge agent I understood what she was doing and why, but now the CIA is letting her run the investigation? The CIA may be many things but stupid isn’t one of them.
