First Trailer Arrives For ‘Homeland’ Season 8
US network Showtime has released the first trailer for ‘Homeland‘ Season 8, which returns in 2020.
‘Homeland’ stars Claire Danes as bipolar ex-CIA officer Carrie Mathison who, with the help of her long-time mentor and former boss Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin), fearlessly risks everything, including her personal well-being and even sanity, at every turn in an effort to keep her country safe.
The final season of Homeland finds Carrie recovering from months of brutal confinement in a Russian gulag. Her body is healing, but her memory remains fractured – which is a problem for Saul, now National Security Advisor to the newly ascendant President Warner (Beau Bridges). The top priority of Warner’s young administration is an end to the “forever war” in Afghanistan, and Saul has been dispatched to engage the Taliban in peace negotiations. But Kabul teems with warlords and mercenaries, zealots and spies – and Saul needs the relationships and expertise that only his protégé can provide. Against medical advice, Saul asks Carrie to walk with him into the lion’s den – one last time.
Alongside Danes and Patinkin, the final season will see a bunch for familiar faces returning including Maury Sterling as Max; Linus Roache as David Wellington, who was White House Chief of Staff to President Keane; Costa Ronin as Russian Yevgeny Gromov; Nimrat Kaur as ISI Agent Tasneem Qureshi; And Numan Acar as terrorist Haissam Haqqani.
The series took quite a large break for its final season, due to some the production shooting in multiple countries at times and in places. The 8th Season was originally supposed to air in June this year, then got bumped to Autumn (or “Fall” for the Americans reading this) 2019. Now, the premiere has been bumped back again to February 2020 in the US.
‘Homeland‘ Season 8 premieres February 09, 2020 at 9pm on Showtime in the US, and is expected to air on Channel 4 not long after that in the UK, but we’ll let you know when we have a confirmed date.
