Homeland Return Date Announced, Season 2 Defended

at . Comments

At today's Television Critics Association Q&A session, Showtime President David Nevins announced that Homeland Season 3 will premiere on Sunday, September 29.

He also took a few moments to address concerns regarding Homeland Season 2, sticking up for the award-winning drama.

Carrie's Hunt

“I think it started really strong and it ended really strong," Nevis said. "Some of the criticism seems fair. [But] suspension of disbelief is the scaffolding all storytelling is based on. I have enormous confidence in the people that write and perform that show [and believe] that it will maintain its quality.”

Many viewers believed events became too far-fetched on Season 2, specifically citing Abu Nazir crashing into Carrie and then kidnapping the CIA agent.

As for the future of Damian Lewis, considering Brody is now a wanted man on the run?

“Everything on that show is vigorously debated," Nevins said, adding of the possibility that Lewis would be written off: "If at the end of that debate, it made sense storywise, I could conceivably say yes.”

sorry tvfanatic but Dexter is premiering on June 30th alongside Ray Donovan... Homeland is premiering on Sept 29th with Masters of Sex... Please amend to avoid any further confusion thanks


No Brody, no watch. Simple as that.


If they write out Brody, I can only imagine them writing out the entire family plus Mike. If they did that, they'd have to fill up the entire cast again seeing as they'd only have Carrie, Saul and Virgil as main cast.
