Today Showtime announced that the upcoming eighth season of HOMELAND would be the show’s final season and will premiere in June 2019. Production on the final 12 episodes will begin in early 2019 in a still to be determined location.
“HOMELAND has been a game-changing series for SHOWTIME, as provocative about the world we live in as it is prescient,” David Nevins, President and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc. said. “This project, arriving right at the beginning of my SHOWTIME tenure thanks to Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and brought to life by a remarkable cast led by Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, is a richly written character study that is now ready for its natural conclusion. Viewers will be rewarded by the way Alex brings HOMELAND home.”
Alex Gansa commented, “HOMELAND has been the most joyful and rewarding experience of my career. Not many have been as lucky as me — partnered with the miraculous Claire Danes, supported to the ends of the earth by Fox and SHOWTIME, and working in the company of some of the most gifted writers, actors, and filmmakers in the business. I am sad to see the journey coming to an end, but it is time. “
