What’s This TV Show About?
A Showtime political spy thriller, Homeland stars Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin, Elizabeth Marvel, Linus Roache, Maury Sterling, and Jake Weber. Morgan Spector joins the cast as a series regular this year. After an assassination attempt, last season ended with President Keane (Marvel) breaking her promise to Carrie (Danes) and arresting 200 members of the intelligence community – among them, Saul Berenson (Patinkin). When season seven kicks off, Carrie has exited her White House job and is living with her sister Maggie (Amy Hargreaves) in DC. Now, she plans to take on the administration and fight for the release of the 200.
Season Seven Ratings
The seventh season of Homeland is averaging a 0.29 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.18 million viewers. Compared to season six, that’s down by 32% and 7%, respectively. Learn how Homeland stacks up against the other Showtime TV shows.
Since Homeland is already renewed through season eight, and is one of Showtime’s best ratings performers, there is no worried that it will be cancelled during this season. Showrunner Alex Ganza is working toward ending it with the eighth season, though. If this season proves a huge success and the network backs up the money truck, that could change. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and the trades and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Homeland cancellation and renewal alerts.
