Mandy Patinkin, Claire Danes, and Lesli Linka Glatter at the National Press Club for Homeland at the Hayden Center: Espionage in Popular Culture [x]
That is the deal we make, in the work we do.
Hello! We missed this, from a few days ago. AG says:
[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. 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.
Showtime not confirming that season 8 is the last one is giving me horror flashbacks to the earlier days of this blog when we’d all wait anxiously for renewal news. MY HOW TABLES TURN.
(Also re: above this sorta changes my opinion that Carrie is gonna be “captured” by the Russians in the finale because that doesn’t really seem like something you’d do a big time jump away from. But this super duper confirms my belief that we saw the last Carrie/Franny scene in “Clarity.”)
Here’s Claire speaking at last night’s panel about Carrie.
