Exclusive: Watch the teaser trailer for the final season of ‘Homeland’:

Entertainment Weekly has the first teaser of season 8!

The first teaser trailer for the final season of Showtime’s Homeland is here.

CIA intelligence officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) is back in action in the first promo for the long-awaited eighth season of the Emmy-winning espionage drama, which returns early next year for its first episodes since 2018.

In the new season, Mathison is recovering from months of brutal confinement in a Russian gulag when she’s called into action to help end the “forever war” in Afghanistan, where National Security Advisor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin) has been dispatched to engage the Taliban in peace negotiations.

But Mathison’s memory is fractured and, as you’ll see in the above promo, her past actions and loyalty are called into question. According to Showtime’s official description, “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.”

Along with Danes and Patinkin, the final season stars Beau Bridges (as the country’s newly elected President Warner), along with Maury Sterling, Linus Roache, and Costa Ronin. In addition, Nimrat Kaur and Numan Acar return from season 4 in series-regular roles.

Homeland premieres Sunday, Feb. 9, at 9 p.m. ET.

Amy Hargreaves On Showtime’s ‘Homeland’:

Amy talks about having a good time on Homeland set and the Maggie/Carrie relationship which obviously makes her emotional. 😉 

“When I went back last season it’s like coming back home again to like a really great group of people. And ultimately the play with Claire, you know that we were able to share the scenes with her, is so special. She’s so fantastic and so talented and a lovely person. It’s just, I was thrilled. […]
I’m gonna cry, it makes me so upset. I don’t know. It’s hard for me to talk about it. It’s just, it’s a complex relationship. I have siblings. So I know a messy family, like a good messy family. But like a big family. I don’t know, I just don’t know how I’m able to put my finger on it but you know Maggie, the sister who is no fun, is the person who just always has to come in… Our mother, kind of bailed a long time ago, dad was kind of like a little bit manic… and then there is Claire’s character of Carrie who shares his kind of bipolar kind of stuff, so Maggie is the only kind of holding the back in the family. She always had to be the responsible one and it weighs on her. And it’s a lot.”

Homeland Season 8 Trailer:

We’re getting a bit impatient for the final season to start next February, so we decided to make up our own storyline! …


Claire talks around 5:30 about her favorite Halloween costume, which was her son’s, the year he went as a (good) germ. (Astute viewers will note it was the same year Claire went as a light bulb or “germ” of an idea, and her husband Hugh went as a German.)

Director/EP Lesli Linka Glatter on working with the main cast of “Homeland”:

New(ish) video. Lesli talks about her experiences working with Claire, Mandy, and Rupert. 

Lesli did a full interview (like, 90-minute interview) with the TV Academy, talking about different career highlights (including Homeland), which you can watch on YouTube here. The breakdown of the interview is here


Homeland – Zombie

Spoilers for Seasons 1 – 7!

Part IV of my ongoing life’s work that is the “Carrie Mathison: Wordsmith” series is live! This was a real labor of love, and I hope you all have as much fun watching as I did making it.* 

We are a few days posting this, but wanted to share this great video from FOTB @karin97rn (who also made the incredible “That Time Homeland Was Funny” video which, surprise surprise, remains hilarious).

Gosh, I really do love Mandy Patinkin. His moment to win an Emmy may have passed but I’ll root for him anyway.
