Saul is getting sprung — and promoted.
Showtime on Tuesday released the first trailer for Homeland‘s forthcoming seventh season (premiering Sunday, February 11 at 9/8c), and it drops a huge spoiler concerning Mandy Patinkin’s incarcerated alter ego. As the promo reveals, Saul gets released from prison and is quickly hired as President Keane’s (Elizabeth Marvel) National Security Advisor. His new gig puts him directly in the crosshairs of — you guessed it — Claire Danes’ Carrie (who recently discovered that POTUS is full-tilt evil.)
In addition to Danes, Patinkin and Marvel, Season 7’s series regulars include the newly-promoted Linus Roache, Maury Sterling and Jake Weber. Boardwalk Empire‘s Morgan Spector also joins the cast as Dante Allen, an old friend of Carrie’s who is looking into the hundreds of people Keane detained following last season’s assassination attempt.
One actor who will definitely not be back for the new season is Rupert Friend, whose seemingly immortal Quinn absolutely perished in the Season 6 finale.
