Showtime has released the teaser trailer for the eighth and final season of its terrorism drama thriller “Homeland” starring Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin. The series will return on Sunday, February 9th.
The final season of Homeland finds Carrie Mathison (Danes) 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 (Patinkin), 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 protege can provide.
Against medical advice, Saul asks Carrie to walk with him into the lion’s den – one last time. Danes’ real-life husband Hugh Dancy is joining the cast for the final season.
