Showtime announces 8th and Final Season of 'Homeland'

"Homeland's" upcoming eighth will be its last. Showtime announced that the series’ final season will premiere in June 2019. "Homeland" stars Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin. Production on the final 12 episodes will begin in early 2019 in an undetermined location. 

“Homeland" has been a game-changing series for Showtime, as provocative about the world we live in as it is prescient,” Nevins 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."  

Produced by Fox 21 Television Studios for Showtime, Homeland was developed for American television by Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon, and is based on the original Israeli series Prisoners of War by Gideon Raff. Along with Gansa and Gordon, the list of executive producers for season eight will include Chip Johannessen, Deb Cahn, Lesli Linka Glatter, Patrick Harbinson, Claire Danes, Michael Klick, Gideon Raff, Avi Nir and Ran Telem.
