Carrie Mathison’s spy missions are just about accomplished: Homeland‘s upcoming eighth season will be its last, series star Claire Danes has confirmed.
In a radio interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday, Stern asked Danes if Season 8 will be the end for the Showtime drama, and Danes replied, “Yeah, that’s it.” (A representative for Showtime tells TVLine that the network has not made a decision beyond Season 8.)
Beginning back in 2011, Homeland stars Danes as CIA case officer Carrie Mathison, with Mandy Patinkin co-starring as Carrie’s father-figure mentor Saul Berenson. The series debuted to great critical acclaim, winning the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series for its first season; Danes has taken home a pair of Emmys for best lead actress in a drama series and been nominated a total of five times.

Homeland was officially renewed for an eighth season back in August 2016. The final season news doesn’t come as a huge surprise: Showrunner Alex Gansa told Variety in February that he was already eyeing Season 8 as the end.
Homeland‘s seventh season — its best season in years, according to us — currently airs Sundays at 9/8c on Showtime, with the finale slated to air April 29.
