Homeland Renewed

Homeland Officially Renewed for Season 7 and Season 8 at Showtime

It’s officially official: Showtime has renewed Homeland for two additional seasons beyond the drama’s upcoming sixth season. The cabler confirmed the Season 7 and 8 pickup Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

Showtime president David Nevins foreshadowed the somewhat surprising multi-season renewal during a conference call with reporters back in June. “Homeland is a show that is constantly reinventing itself… since it’s very much about this Intelligence world,” the exec said at the time. “More than most, this is a show that has an open-ended expiration date, just because of the subject matter.”

The formal announcement comes as Homeland begins production on Season 6, which will be set in New York City and chronicle the precarious two month period between Election Day and the swearing in of new POTUS Elizabeth Keane (House of Cards‘ Elizabeth Marvel)CSI: NY‘s Hill Harper recently joined the cast as Keane’s Chief of Staff, and The Flash‘s Patrick Sabongui is set to recur as a CUNY law professor who works with Carrie and is a fierce advocate for the Muslim American community.

Homeland Season 6 is slated to premiere in January 2017.

    Really hope Homeland will end after eight seasons and if it does, it should match the total number of seasons alongside Game of Thrones (HBO).

    No Peter Quinn, then no me. It’s the only way I’ll survive 3 more seasons.

    This is good news, but would be better IMO is if they could get Diego Klattenhoff back. His current show sucks (not his fault) so it would be awesome if he was able to go back to HL.

    As I said with Ray Donovan being renewed earlier – Showtime – David Nevins did it again with renewing Homeland for Seasons 7 & 8. Can’t wait for Season 6 in January. Best network on TV.
