What’s in store for Homeland‘s last season? Recently, showrunner Alex Gansa spoke with EW about his plans for the Showtime TV show’s eighth and final season.
Earlier this week, star Claire Danes confirmed the next season of the political drama will be the last. The Showtime series also stars includes Mandy Patinkin, Elizabeth Marvel, Linus Roache, Maury Sterling, and Jake Weber.
Speaking to EW, Gansa revealed the final season of Homeland will take place overseas:
“[Season 7 arranges] all the pieces on the chessboard to make that a proper finale for the story we’ve been telling. We get to play this last season in D.C with the intention of taking us overseas for one last chapter. Season 8 will be overseas somewhere. We get to play a story with larger national stakes in season 7 and we’ll go back to a smaller intelligence-based season in 8. We get to pull out all the stops this year and then get to the emotional heart of things in season 8.”
And what’s Carrie doing? Gansa says there will be a time jump between seasons seven and eight:
We’re going to start fresh in season 8 and probably do a fairly big time jump between 7 and 8 and put any Trump parallels behind us. We’ll tell a very contained story, hopefully in Israel.”
What do you think? Do you watch Homeland? How do you hope the series ends?
